Just because you’ve finished high school it doesn’t mean you’re done with books and teachers just yet. Seventeen years old is simply too young to start a full time work career and get your own apartment and live the grown up life. This is a time of your life where you begin to make your own decisions, branch out on your own and stumble and learn just as the rest of us adults. Here are the best choices a teenager fresh out of high school has in order to get to know themselves better and what they want to do in life.
1.) College- Very few people ever regret their college experience. Whether they make the right decisions in college or not are another matter but it’s a great time for personal growth and to develop socially as people. The course material covered in college is matched in importance with the experience of living away from home for the first time without the support of your family.
2.) Tech school- Though you can travel and stay on campus at some tech schools, these schools offer another opportunity. The opportunity to work a job and attend a school part time in which they learn a trade. Better yet, you can work in a field like electrician and study courses around your work schedule that will improve your long-term ability to be promoted in the field.

It is a great place to see what the educational institutes have for classes and to get an idea of the different careers you could start.
3.) Military- If school really isn’t for you then maybe the military is a better fit. For those who want more time to decide what career path to choose, the military can provide other things that will help you become a better human being almost immediately. You learn discipline, teamwork, and earn money towards your future. Rather than racking up costly student loans, you will be paid and able to save the money since you have no living expenses in the military.
Think about your choices and do what’s best for you.
