Americans 25 and under face one of the toughest job markets in modern history, but they’re looking to the future, too. This week, The Wall Street Journal invited some to answer this question: Where do you see yourself five years from now?


‘I see myself being a manager in the H.R. field. I like working with people and enjoy using people to their full potential after evaluating strengths and weaknesses.’
—Biyan Zhou, 22, a senior at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, switched her major from electrical and computer engineering to a double major in psychology and policy management. (Jeff Swensen for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘In five years, I see myself self-employed with opportunities to travel around Europe. I will be writing, singing, producing and recording pop songs. I will still live at the beach in Jupiter, Fla.—but not with either parent.’
—Faith Jacobson, 23, a college graduate who works at a private golf course as a part-time bartender. (Mark Ovaska for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘I plan to be officially divorced, have my degree finished, have an apartment again, have savings and be a firefighter.’
—Cody Preston, 25, moved back in with his parents in Milwaukie, Ore., after he was laid off and his marriage broke up. (Leah Nash for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘In the future, I want to own a business—a small remodeling business.’
—Justin Randol, 25, right, seen here with Cody Preston, received a high-school equivalency certificate and was laid off. He splits his rent with roommates in St. Helens, Ore. (Leah Nash for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘I will have finished graduate school and will be working for one of the major broadcast networks in New York City. Being in touch with the news from around the world is important to me and I hope to share that passion with others.’
—Natasha Pearson, 19, attends Hunter College in New York. (Bryan Derballa for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘I would like to continue [in] the entertainment industry or maybe even get an M.B.A. I’m also willing to travel wherever the best opportunity takes me!’
—Elizabeth Kushel, 23, 2010 University of Pennsylvania graduate who works as an assistant for national publicity at a New York public-relations firm. (Bryan Derballa for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘I see myself owning a business, like a barber shop. I write my own songs, too, so I’m trying to get into the music industry. I want to study business management at a community college and then transfer to a four-year program.’
—Isiah Vinters, 21, works at a grocery store in Hartford, Conn. (Jesse Neider for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).


‘My hope is to grow with the company. I continue moving toward my ultimate goal of being a state-sales coordinator right here at Aflac.’
—John Dodge, a district sales coordinator for Aflac in Baton Rouge, La. (Daymon Gardner for The Wall Street Journal) (See related article).
