Looking for some career insight!
In an attempt to assist my younger brother (18 yrs. old and graduating high school this year) who has absolutly no idea as to the direction he wants to take after graduation. He's expressed some interest in attending a technical school and maybe pursuing something in automative mechanics, but the kid just has no clue. I understand everyone has their dream career in mind. Heck I wanted to be professional baseball player (almost made it, but that's another story) then played around in college for a few years before realizing my true passion was the military. I've discussed many career opportunities with him and some insight about how to get there. However, he's not really motivated about the opportunites I've discussed with him. Which leads me here at this moment in time, due to the nature of this forum I suspect most members have been successful to some degree, what I'm looking for is some insight on some interesting careers. Not necessarily what you do/did for a living but some careers I'm not thinking of. This has been an up hill battle since the beginning of the school year. Just for note he'll graduate high school with a GPA of somewhere around 3.2 so he's capable of the general technical field, also he has just taken the ASVAB (armed services vacational aptitude battery) and got a 71, this score is based on percentile and not percentage. Thank you in advance for any and all responses.
