While some mornings you might wonder if wearing shorts and a wool sweater are the right layers to get you through the day, autumn is the season to celebrate pumpkin spice and many other splendid things. Read on to see what your favorite aspect of autumn says about your possible future career.
Football is back!
You are excited for all the tailgates, food, fantasy football, and of course cheering on your team! There are many aspects to the football season that excite you which makes it your favorite part of fall. A career in the areas of sports, arts, fashion, or entertainment industries could be a good path for you.
New Themes on Social Media!
Whether it is trying out new Snapchat filters or scrolling through all the tailgating and apple-picking photos, social media is buzzing during the fall! You enjoy updating your social media and seeing what others are up to. A career path in marketing, media, communications, or advertising could be good for you.
Tech companies are releasing new products!
You like having the newest gadgets and are excited for all the releases that are on the market for the upcoming holiday season. Technology is a big part of your life, especially figuring out how these things work (iphone X face recognition?!). A career path in technology, engineering, or the physical sciences could be good for you.
Black Friday and Holiday Shopping!
You spend all of Fall saving up to splurge on gifts for yourself and those you love for the holidays. You budget every meal, outing and new adventure. Saving and spending wisely are your strong suits. A career path in finance, consulting, real estate, insurance, or accounting could be good for you.
It’s that time of year when local candidates are running for election. You look forward to seeing signs on people’s front lawns and listening to why candidates should be elected. If this is something that excites you, a career path in government, international affairs, or law could be good for you.
Back to School!
You’re looking forward to getting your brain stimulated again with new content and conversations with your best friends. You can’t wait to learn about the different ways to get involved on campus and in the community this upcoming year. A career path in education, non-profit, or human services could be good for you.
Changes in Nature!
You love seeing the leaves change color, the apples turn ripe and enjoy being one with nature during this time of year. You make sure to take a picture of every beautiful sunset you encounter. You plan the most scenic route to go pumpkin picking. At the same time, you make sure to take care of yourself by drinking all the fall-themed teas to keep you warm on the chilly fall days. If this sounds like you, a career path in health professions and life sciences sounds good for you!
