Careers can change, and I can change my mind about my career. Since I was 7 years old I always wanted to be a family and divorce lawyer. I wanted to be this and I always thought I would be great at it. Then I finally joined the Criminal Justice Academy at my high school, which quickly changed that goal of mine to become a lawyer. Sure, I’m good at arguing but maybe being a lawyer isn’t for me. So then for a few months I wanted to be a cop, that changes quickly as I realized I wasn’t quite tough enough to risk my life daily. I decided that maybe I need to get a job, so I did.
I did this not only to figure out what to do with my life but also, because it was time. I was looking for jobs and found one right when I turned 16. This wasn’t my first job, but it was my first payroll job. I got hired at Taco Bell, not that special I know. However, when I got this job I made a goal for myself to move up in the company while I was there. Everything came so natural to me and seemed super easy, I did everything better than some that have been there for years. I then got promoted to the Team Trainer and Leader. I started training and hiring all new employees, and being in charge of the customer service scores our store recieved. We were always in the lead, and I was proud. I realized that I made something out of this Taco Bell job. I’ve been there for a year now, and trust me I do want to get out of there.
This job was a great experience for me, because I was able to get experience in management. This made me realize I want to major in Business Management, and work my way up to a high position in a company for a career. I know now that I do not ever want to work in fast food again, but it made me stronger. Perhaps I may get a job at a bank, or insurance company, all I know is my career goals are set, and they may change but that’s okay!
