Life Goals
My future long-term career goal is to become a part of the governments defense
counsel, either by becoming a legal secretary or an attorney. I would need to
attend college, pass the bar exam and become board certified in order to become
an attorney. In reference to becoming a legal secretary I believe I\'ve developed
those skills through several years of hard work, and I feel I\'ve gained enough
experience to pursue this field. I believe I will be successful in becoming an
attorney. I am determined to finish high school with the academic excellence
required to obtain a good professional direction in the law field. I have
several years of expierence in Law, Speech, Acting, and Debate. These qualities
will help me to pursue questioning, and feel comfortable in the courtroom. It
was difficult to find information on my career goal. I found several job
opportunities, but I could not find information on the academic requirements
needed to attend a 4 star law school on the internet. I had to research my
information through word of mouth, and the results I received from the "job
search" worksheet we did gave me a lot of needed information. My current
job skills relate to my future career goals in several ways. My knowledge of
computers are very useful in todays society. I am experienced in several aspects
of the computer. I am literate of several computer programs such as Peachtree

Accounting, Microsoft Word and Works, and Power point among several others. I

classes, and I\'ve built my own web-site. Furthermore, I consider myself very
computer literate, and in todays career fields literacy is required, and a fast
typing speed is encouraged. Communication and social skills are very important
when dealing with customers. The happiness and satisfaction of the customer is
what companies thrive their business on in order to profit, and keep up with

dealing with clients. Whether the client is happy or night, the needs of the
customer are the most important. In High School I took several communications
