Some students who are interested in the legal system, but don’t want to become a lawyer, paralegal or legal secretary are opting for a career as a court reporter. Court reporting students enroll at a specialty school where they learn how to document what is happening around them at the courthouse or other place.
Students will need to have equipment to learn on with while taking these courses. They will need to practice and be able to increase their speed and accuracy. Court reporting has changed over the years and there are several different ways that the procedure can be done. This includes a voice method, where you only have to speak into a machine.
A science career as a hydrologist could be a terrific choice for someone interested in studying water and water systems. Hydrologists are trained to understand water properties and then apply that knowledge to helping people use and conserve water safely. Hydrologists are often involved in field research and not in a small office. Their work takes them outdoors and often on the road. College students can find out if this might be a career for them by taking a few hydrology classes in their junior or senior years.
