What To Do with Your Major?
What’s your major and why did you choose that major?
Many students choose their major not because they know what career they think they want in the future, but because the topic interests them, which makes all the sense in the world. The issue though is that when it is almost time for graduation, they have no idea what career path they want to take. It is certainly okay to try out different jobs and careers before settling into a specific one, but having a goal or idea of where you would like to end up can be helpful in deciding what type of jobs you may initially take to gain the experience needed for your career.
