 Part III.  Needs


What do I need to help me reach my future goals?

For this section, think about the goals you have listed above and identify those areas in which you may need more training, skills development, financial aid, etc., in order to help you succeed. 

For example, you may have a goal to get a job in six months, but aren’t quite sure how to work in an office environment because you have worked in restaurants only.  Consequently, a “need” you have is to learn basic office skills and behavior.
