"If you can manage it, take a class in the desired field at your university. You could do it cheap and take one over the summer at your local community college if you wish. Now, that is a double edged sword since if you have a horrible professor you…"

"Maybe you end up with a specialty in advertising law. I think as long as it's not McDonalds, almost any summer job can be good experience.  Even that...at least you'll know how horrible it is working for a corporation like that on…"

"As long as you know what you're getting into, go for it.  I've just seen many folks your age who want to be lawyers while largely getting their idea of what that entails from TV and Hollywood.  Hence my comment."

"Thing is, my mom is a renowned lawyer and so I got a lot of knowledge about the career from her. Watching her work, often visiting her at work etcetera. I sort of know what I'm getting into and it's a legitimate plan A - as in, I…"

"I wonder if you're asking this about the wrong field.  How much have you looked into law--what it's really like, not what TV says it's like?  Have you talked to many lawyers about their work?  What about young lawyers…"

"Law is definitely the plan A. As for advertising, I only want to get some basic, entry-level, 101-kind of education in it. Just enough to see what it's about and use it to help out my dad. If I find that I enjoy it and am good at it, I might…"

How do you get "into" a certain field?

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…See More
