As the saying goes the “Proof is in the Pudding” going to college is experience in a controlled environment but to real clients and in-order to command service fees or sell higher priced products you need to showcase your skills and that you get results for clients.
It is important to gain experience in whatever interests you as soon as possible for two reasons.
First you learn from experience, you get stronger, smarter, and gain more skills from the challenges you face through your experiences.
Secondly you gain a better understanding if this is what you want to do or not. I can't tell you how many people waste their time thinking, keyword “thinking” about what they want to do but change their mind when they get a real taste of doing what they thought they wanted to do.
Internships and being an apprentice are two quick and readily available opportunities for this. But with the growth of the Gig Economy, you may find the career you want doing gig work while at the same time gaining experience for your dream job.
