Making the Most out of High School, Tip #7

Tip #7 Get to know your guidance counselor.

Your guidance counselor has a wealth of information about scholarships, careers, colleges, internships, and jobs. Do be a "regular" in his/her office. Stop in to say hi. Ask if there are any relevant scholarships. Check out the resources in the career center.

Guidance Counselors LOVE to help students - and they are often called upon to nominate students for various scholarships and awards. If they know you, they'll think of you first - especially if you have stellar grades and are actively involved in your school (hence, prior tips...).

Stop by your GC's office today! (Well, not today, it's summer...but you get the gist...).
