We are seniors at Nordhoff High School in Ojai, CA and are currently in the midst of working on our college applications! In addition, we have also begun thinking about college majors and careers. It’s hard to get a real idea of what different careers are like just from reading information in guidebooks or on the internet. We thought it would be interesting and fun to interview some of the accomplished people in Ojai and talk about what drew them to their career, what they like and dislike, the amount of training required, and what sort of advice they might have for a young person considering that career. So far, we’ve interviewed a private chef, a physical therapist, an economist, a judge, and a marriage therapist, among others. We are posting the videos of our interviews so other people can learn the same things we did. Our plan is to interview several more people and then turn the videos over to the Ojai Valley Youth Foundation (http://www.ovyf.org) as one of their programs to support youth in the Ojai Valley. We’d love to hear any comments or suggestions you have. Thanks!
