The phrase shaping your own path is unique from person to person as they hold different meanings. For some, they defer college for a year and head off on a gap year before taking up their place at a university. Other students skip college altogether, some decides to spend the summer working or traveling. Some students start their own blogs and they start their own businesses while others volunteer, intern, and they go on a quest to find themselves. Basically what we are trying to say is, college isn’t the only option for you. If your heart desires, you can definitely pursue other avenues and put the college idea on hold or get rid of it all together. If you’re somebody who is exploring your options on what you can do after high school, these tips that we have mentioned will definitely help you figure out what you want to do and figure out everything related to your next move.


If you want to start working once you’ve graduated high school, you’re going to have t d an internship at a company in your field of interest. Usually this is the route that you would have to go in since most companies recruit people with prior experience in similar job roles.

However, once the internship is completed. You can add this experience on to your resume before sending out your resume to companies and job vacancies. Chances are, when you have more experience under the belt, you’re likely to get hired. 

Take A Class

If you want to learn but not fully commit to the idea of going to college, you could enroll yourself in a local community college and take a couple of classes at leisure in order to get an understading of what major you would like to pursue in the future or you could take rto training materials to help you in your future as a heavy machine operator.

Whether you’re looking forward to your classes or going to community college and taking a couple of classes, by doing this you will still have the opportunity to learn and understand your likes and dislikes with regards to majors.

Travel abroad

Just take a few months of a breather and travel somewhere exotic for a change. If you think that this won’t be very educational, you’re mistaken because you will learn so much about a new country and a culture just by doing so.

There are also many volunteer programs that accept high school graduates so maybe you could look into something of the sort and travel far away.
