What did you tell your high school guidance counselor what you wanted as a career?

What do I know about midgets? Very little.

And she sort of laughed at me.

Guidance Counselor. I was perfectly qualified for the job as a teen.

The test said I should be a minister or a therapist, ah back when I gave a sh!t about people. ;)

I never dealt with a guidance counselor

Accountant- I had taken two years of “accounting” classes in high school and also excelled at maths. My dream was to work at one of the big firms. Counselor laughed and said I was “too social” to be an accountant. Jokes on her because I ended up marrying a partner at an accounting firm.

Junior High and High school: a registered nurse. No one argues with me. RN, BS 44 years.

Political journalist. I ended up in finance as cooler (parental) heads prevailed

Simon said...

Haha, a “stewardess.”

I went to a "College Prep" that had no designated counselors. We were divided amongst faculty. I was never asked this question. My senior year was a not a high point for myself or the school.

as a mother to 20 children. I went to Catholic school and the guidance counselor was always pregnant. I became a mechanical engineer and she tried to discourage me.

What is this obsession with high school?

Pre-med. When I got to college (as pre-med) I realized I wasn't dedicated enough to spend that much time in training. When I thought about being stuck in an office listening to sick people all day I freaked. I literally flipped a coin to decide between pharmacy and nursing. Nursing won the coin toss. Lucky for me as I found I loved nursing. Different faces every day, no two days were ever alike which worked for this Sagittarius who gets bored easily.

I started out as a nursing major. At some point I realized that if I wasn't paying attention or if I made a mistake I could kill someone. I switched to business and ended up getting an MBA. Passed the CPA exam in 1988.

I didn't ever have that conversation. My gym teacher was a milf though..had great legs for an older lady.

No such thing as a high school counsellor at my alma mater. We had a lot of support at school, not just one discussion about our future careers. Although my future was pretty much mapped out at birth, CLC developed my aptitude in sciences and gave me the confidence to pursue that.

Peace Corps. My guidance counselor was about as worthless as the one who was blasted by the valedictorian the other day.

I told the guidance counselor that he should look for a new career because he wasn’t helpful. At all.

Never talked to ours he was creepy AF

Was told I'd be a C student at the state's middling college, so forget about college.
Worked a few years.
Went back to school twice, scored As in all courses both times.
Have a Masters plus 60.

rabbit said...

And my relaxation is celebrity gossip.

OKay said...

I really don't recall anyone ever asking...

Donna said...

Sniper. Really. It got me an appointment with the school "counselor" and a call to my parents. Good times.

EyeSee said...

There were thousands of students in my high school and there are only so many a guidance counselor can talk to... I was not one of them.
