Seeing the day to day workings of these particular businesses has led me to this decision. In order to realize this dream I will not only need this work experience, but I'll need a good education as well. My career goal is to put my education and experience to use in owning a small hardware store.
I will graduate from Norwalk Community College in September of this year with a degree in general studies. This degree will not only give me a strong basis by which to start working toward my goals, but it also provides me with a diverse background and allows me a certain level of flexibility in my choices for the future. Having knowledge not only in the logistical side of a business, but also all in all other facets involved in owning business, such as human relations and technical support is crucial. I have found that my courses in mathematics and business at Norwalk Community College have been particularly helpful, both with my current position as a sales associate, and in preparation for my future.
Although this degree is a great start, I feel it is still necessary to continue with my education. This is why I would like to go on to a four year college. I plan to enter college with a major in general studies, as I am not yet ready to choose a specific major.
