Planning For Your Future

AAI has helped many recent high school graduates pursue new and exciting careers through education and hands-on training. Our on-campus teams can help with a number of common questions high schoolers like you commonly ask!

  • Which career path do I want to pursue after graduation?
    • Finding the right career can be difficult. It requires a lot of introspection, thought, and self-review. The more one understands about oneself, the easier it could be to select a career. AAI helps students find the path to new careers every day. Our enrollment advisors will be happy to discuss whether or not one of our programs could be the right choice for you.
  • What is my ideal work environment?
    • Everyone’s ideal working conditions are different. Some prefer working alone, while others would prefer to be part of a large team. Our graduates could end up working indoors, outdoors, or even a mix of both. Everything from the shape of the room to the people you work with counts. That’s why AAI offers labs designed to simulate real-world employment conditions – so students can truly understand the potential workplace and decide which kind would be right for them.
