Actual Careers is designed to help high school and college students learn what careers are available, because when I finished high school, I didn’t have any idea what to study in college … so I just didn’t go.  After a few years, I went to a technical school and earned an associates degree in electronic engineering.  It was not until after I started my maintenance career in the automotive industry, that I realized that with a little more education the opportunities were endless.  I never realized how many different career opportunities there really were, if I had the right education.  That is when I thought that it would have been nice to have a database of careers, populated by the people that actually work in the field, and that would be willing to share their real life experience.  I wanted to capture information about education, specialized training, career path options, and naturally, salary.

There are so many careers out there that people don’t know or even think about.  I am hoping that this website will help expose people to the variety of careers, and make the best decision for their own career.
