Laurie really helps those who aren’t sure what they want their future profession to be or those who don’t know what they enjoy doing. It really gave me a clearer insight for types of jobs I would be happy and do well in. It also helped me to make a definite list of colleges that had great programs for professions that I would enjoy.
