Misperception 18: I should be on the same track as my friends.

Career Wisdom: It's all about you.  FACT: Just as it has been true throughout your entire life, people continue to develop at different paces. Life is not one size fits all. There are many rewarding and satisfying careers out there. Evaluating potential careers can be an exciting process if you fully explore all the possibilities and make a decision based on what would offer you the most satisfaction. While it's a challenge not to succumb to peer pressure, remember it's your future. Nobody else has to live it but you. Talking things over with an Educational and Career Counselor can help you gain a better understanding of what works for you.
