Congratulations High School Class of 2014

Congratulations! You did it!

High school is over and now you have the rest of your life ahead of you. But what does that even mean? Figuring out what you want to do with your life can be confusing, especially when there are so many options. So to help you sort that out, here are some titles to get you thinking about what you want to do after high school. And don't worry if you change your mind once, twice or a million other times.

A good place to start if you have no idea what you want to do after high school is Where Do I Go From Here?  It guides you step by step from exploring what's out there to picking a certain path. It has everything from work to school to travel along with a lot of general advice about life as a young adult.

If you're interested in doing something that fits your personality, Do What You Are lets you explore your personality type with exercises. Once you know your personality type, you can explore different professions that might interest you based on how you process information and make decisions.

But maybe you already have a plan and know that you will be attending college in the fall. If that's the case, you should check out The Secrets of College Success. It has over 600 tips, including everything from the seven things to do the summer before college to the top 10 signs you've been cutting too many classes.
