It seems to me that what many people major in during college differs greatly from the career path they eventually choose. I’d like to hear your stories – what you majored in, what you do now, and what caused you to deviate from your major. I’m a Marketing major currently, but I feel that I could end up doing a number of different things after I graduate.
How relevant was your college education to your career choice?
Majoring in finance at the moment, would like to work with retail fashion...I know right :(
Being a sales associate is pretty fun at the moment, probably because I'm young but it may change. Might look at financial positions for a fashion retail.
Gonna continue running my family's investment portfolio, so I don't cry and sweat as much at night
I studied psychology and anthropology for two years as an undergrad. Then I transferred to a small seminar-based creative writing program within the same school.
As a graduate, I studied journalism.
Now, I'm in advertising.
Do what you love to do at the moment. Take whatever you learn forward with you. Don't be afraid to change your course. Don't be afraid to break the rules and make your own.
Undergrad was math and political science, and grad was applied mathematics. Now, I'm working as a statistician at a marketing company.
With that said, I'm considering looking for a 'online marketing' or 'ppc marketing' position. That or something more oriented towards policy, such as
a 'policy analyst.' I like stats, but it's just overwhelming sometimes.
