Does anyone know how likely it is someone will work in the field they majored in after college?


My major, nursing it will be very easy to find a job right when I get out of college. Especially since I am a male, male nurses are very high in demand.

I believe any medical field will be easy to get a job in.

Good luck trying to get a job buddy. Friend of mine graduated as an architect a couple years back, still hasn't found a job. Most architecture jobs require you to already have experience to work for them.
Also, my dad is an architect, got laid off in 2002, been trying to find a job ever since, still hasn't found one. He ended up starting his own company, which is going quite well.

This fall is my freshman year, I'm an Architecture major...

All of you other Arch majors, how were your programs? Any advice? What schools did you all do it at?

with arch, its actually better to get a masters than to have a bachelors.


It's actually better to have a Master's than a Bachelor's? Drrrrrrr no shit.

I'm a finance major. Active in the Financial Management Association. It's always good to join an academic club or two, helps you meet employers all over, develop contacts for down the road, and if you plan on going to Grad school they like seeing that type of stuff. If the job market doesn't improve much in 2 years when I graduate, definitely going to get my MBA, just doesn't make sense to jump into a poor job market when you have no to little experience and just a Bachelor's.

Unless you're getting your MBA at an Ivy league school its gonna be useless with no real experience. If i were you Id try to get a job before going for an MBA. Do you know how saturated the job market is?

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

That isn't true. People who have MBA's earn over $10,000 more per year on average than those with Bachelor's. These days, bachelor degrees really aren't shit, and are in no way your ticket into the middle class. These days so many people are going to college that getting a masters is like a bachelors was back in our parent's day.

And I would definitely work during the day like I do now to get experience. If I can find a decent job when I graduate, I'll try to do the MBA thing at night.

Sorry cuhhlairrre I know I do that, I'm a complete smartass jackass for sho.

Was choosing between that or civil engineering

All I found was this
"Students earning a degree in interior design will be able to immediately sit for the IDEX California exam to certify interior designers in the state of California. Graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) examination two years after full time employment in the field of interior design."

you guys are so discouraging. im actually going into architecture but my major is interior design. with that, i'm hoping to move forward and get a masters in architecture. with arch, its actually better to get a masters than to have a bachelors. and if i do both, it'll open up options for jobs...

with that said, your job options open more with a masters. so, rel a... if that's your plan, then go for it. dont settle for a bachelors

and about the nursing and them being easy jobs to get, my housemate got an RN and she can't even find a job.


Sorry, didn't mean to be so discouraging lol. Was just sharing experiences.

Also, heard Architecture has probably THE HARDEST licensing exam. But you can do it if you study hard & put your mind to it, which it seems like its something you really want to do, so more power to you.

& wow, your housemate can't find a job.. wtf? Over here in IL hospitals take you in right away, hm.. weird.

for those worrying about jobs after college and such, definitely check out stuff like cnn money articles http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bestjobs/2009/full_list/index.html . good place to look for an idea about job growth.

that's odd, maybe the area has low demand, because most areas around the country need nurses. did she go for a BA or the two year route?

Top-tier schools that yield the highest earnings (durr) almost always require 3-4 experience to cut your teeth and show for your chops; off the top of my head I know Stanford is an exception. Theories and practicalities learned in class are ultimately put to test in these professional settings and judged by one's superior to show for their ability of competence and execution. Hell, most programs require 2-3 letters of rec. from past professors and employers anyway. Helps to have McKinsey or Goldman Sachs on that resume prior to applying, right?

I'd look into this program too: http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/sigm/index.html

Yeah I was reading about the MBA program on Harvard's web site (not like I'd go there, but always a good place to check out their standards) and they like seeing the employment, but they also say if they see a good student, they aren't afraid to let in a new student straight out of college. If I went to grad school I would probably try to get into the University of Washington, I go there now and it's MBA program is top 20 in the nation I think.

Have you guys heard anything about the GMAT, like how hard it is? I was thinking about buying a prep book to look through and wet my feet a little.
