you were a child were you ever asked, "What do you want
to be when you grow up?" We were all pretty creative back
in our childhood days daydreaming about being Fireman, Nurses,
Policemen, Teachers, Doctors, Cowboys, Princesses, etc. As adults,
that same question is sometimes very difficult to answer. Many
people enter employment at a young age and expect to retire
from that company in 30 or 40 years. In today's job market,
this expectation is easier said than done. As a result
of this, many adults are having to think of a second, third,
or even fourth career to enter until they retire.

with this task, we have listed several informational websites that
you can search and explore for more detailed information on careers.
