I'm in my senior year in high school right now and I figured I should start taking certain steps to ease my entrance into the adult world. My idea for higher education is pretty much a done deal, I'm preparing for a law school. But aside from that, I also want to use the time I have right now to try different things and see what I'm good at, what are my strengths.
My father runs a jewelery store and I've decided to take up advertising the place. I have no experience in the field whatsoever and although my question could just be "how to get into advertising", I bear in mind what I said in the first paragraph and my question is: how can you get a taste of a certain field, get into it only superficially in order to see if you're doing any good in it so far?
Well, being a paramedic, i can tell you that many fire and rescue departments love to have eager students to ride along and observe. some will let you do so merely by request, but my best advice is to take a certification course in EMS. An EMT-Basic course is often taught in one semester at many community and technical colleges, and as precepted internship is an intergral part of the National Standard Curriculum, it provides a great opportunity to get a taste of the life without making a commitment. If nothing Else, the course can teach you very useful First aid techniques that could save your, our a family member's life.
