Dear Mr. Tusa,
As a 10-year-old boy,
I never had any trouble telling people what I was
going to do as a career.
At that time, there was no doubt that I wanted to be anything else but
a fireman. It was something about those red trucks and Dalmatians
I guess. However, now that I am older, yellow suits and fire engines
do not have the same appeal to me.
Understanding the difference
between a job and a career was something that took me until high school
to figure out, and it has taken me even longer to decide on just what that
career would be. While in college, I began taking some economic
and political science courses. Through my study, I became intrigued
by the under lying principles and reasoning used in these fields.
I soon decided to double major in these areas and begin a career path toward
becoming a professional in this line of work.
The options I have explored
are: working in the private sector consulting businesses, working
for the state' s economic development department, or
working for the Federal
Reserve. Who knows, I might take Greenspan's job!I look forward to
working in this course and developing a more detailed idea of what I will
do in the future.
Looking forward to this
