How can I find a great paying career at my age?
I am 18, but have been working in the IT field for 8 years developing website's, writing software, creating and selling 3 successful web hosting businesses, and having a very good education? Most companies tell me I am too young, but really, I take that offensive almost. I am a very bright individual and have been sold by many people that I am brighter than most adults in the field. Any tips or opportunities would be fantastic. Thanks!Posted in: Careers
The goal of kcteenlink.org is for teens to connect with real professionals in the careers they want to accomplish. By teens asking questions to real professionals and other teenagers about their careers, this will establish a growing community; a link to each person’s life to make every teen feel important and to lead him/her on a guided direction of where to go with their desired path. Teenagers will also be able to ask their personal questions and to receive help about serious matters. Those questions will only be answered by experts, such as, doctors, nurses, and psychiatrists. Another goal of KCTL is to bring together organizations that are aiming to reach teenagers, and connect with them with our site.
Kcteenlink.org was created with an idea by students: Curtis Smart, a student of University Arkansas -Pine Bluff and Kaleb Berry, a student of Baker University.
Curtis Smart, a senior leader of 20/20 Leadership, became concerned after juniors and seniors attending F.L. Schlagle high school, voiced frustration and concern about the lack of resources and knowledge about services available to answer questions, offer guidance, and to meet the needs of teenagers. He asked Kaleb Berry, who had the technological skills to develop the website for this idea. Together, they planned and worked and on On March 22nd, 2011, kcteenlink.org became a published website.
