Have You Picked Your Major Yet?

Have You Picked Your Major Yet?

The only thing scarier than going to college is not finding a job after graduation to help you pay off all that studentloan debt. It seems a little insane that your college advisers make you chose the course of your life at 18 years old of course you able to always change your major but not without undoing everything you’ve already done. When faced with the decision I went with my passion and didn’t really delve into the statistics or projections of what careers would be hiring in 4-5 years when I graduated.
