Internet Store Managers and Entrepreneurs
If you are considering becoming an Internet store manager or
entrepreneur, there are a number of classes you can take in high
school to help prepare you for these careers. Naturally you should
take computer science courses to give you a familiarity with using
computers and the Web. Business and marketing courses will also be
beneficial for you. Also, take mathematics, accounting, or
bookkeeping classes because, as an entrepreneur, you will be
responsible for your company's finances. Take history classes to
learn about economic trends and psychology classes to learn about
human behavior. A lot of advertising and product promotion has a
psychological element. Finally, take plenty of English classes.
These classes will help you develop your communication skills,
which will be vital to your work as a store manager or business
