whats a major that allows you to get a job where you make money but is not so boring or tedious that it makes you wanna cut your wrists?

If you're in college, where do you go and what are you studying??

Sort of confused as what is the best method to get into the industry, but also make some money.

Advertisement/Website-Blog/Social Media type stuff..


Haha dipshit. If you're going to be a fucking blogger, don't waste your parents money at a University. Listen, if you're not going to a 4 year universtiy for Pre-Med/Law, Business, or Engineering don't fucking bother going. Anyone who is getting their major in liberal arts, psychology, art, music, education, urban studies major, please for the love of god take your own fucking life.

But hey, two naked dudes made facebook in their college dorm and now they're payed as fuck, so I guess there's a little bit of wiggle room.

Harsh, but true, and in terms of employment opportunities, and earnings isn't marketing the worst concentration of business?


Yes, unless the school you go to has good connections to good marketing companies and you yourself made good connections in school, you wouldn't really be making alot. Like someone else said my buddy is going to school for nursing, which is usually in high demand, it might sound gay as of right now to be a dude and study nursing...but atleast he'll most likely find employment after school.


Listen, for anyone who's intelligent, willing to work hard, and would like to make money/find employment after school. I would advise you to look into Engineering as your major. My brother who is at Pitt and about to be a senior is a biomedical engineering major, did a co-op position this past year with GSK (Glaxosmithkline), made connections for after school, got the experience, and also got paid 25 dollars an hour.

This being said, anyone who's looking into Engineering as a major, it's hard, and I mean really hard. Alot of Chem (Organic/Inorganic), Bio, Calc, etc. But if you did well in high school, and apply yourself in college, it's a feild that can lead to career opportunities and pretty good pay.

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

you all are right about that engineering shit, but if you lack interest in it...you will put yourself thru hell for 5 years and it will be difficult to thrive. that engineering shit is no ho, don't let anyone fool you. i started majoring in engineering for the stability and bread, but after a year and a half i just couldn't put myself thru that shit anymore.

the trick is to find something you like enough that will enable you to support and sustain your lifestyle. or, just go to a ballin ass school in major in exactly what you want. think you won't get a job? just ask john legend... b.a. in african american studies @ upenn, got picked up by the #3 consulting firm in the country. its not what you know, its who you know...you'll have a waaaay more exclusive network at the elite schools

@fuckinrevs I'm thinkin about studying healthcare administration, and was wonderin if you have any insight on employment opportunities upon graduation. I already looked at the info the BLS has to offer, but I want a second opinion on the likely hood of me finding a job after school.

I honestly couldn't tell you alot man. Sorry. But like I said, nursing jobs are in demand and I'm sure it shouldn't be too difficult to find a position somewhere in the healthcare field after you finish school. If you haven't thought about it yet, are their co-op positions offered during the summer, or internships offered for your major? It's all about networking when you're in college, and a co-op position offers alot, meet new people with similar goals as you, possibly get paid, get experience in the field youre looking to pursue, etc. Just try to make good connections in school and it may be easier to find a job after it.

Journalism (public relations tract or 0 sports) and communications. Going to be interning at espn next summer to see if i really want to go that route with sports otherwise I'll stick with PR.

Still might do law school but $5 0 0 0 0 is a steep fucking price for three more years of school.

Is it a hard major? I get mixed feelings from everyone


I just finished my first year and I like it; I think getting into the programming mindset is the hard part but then its just all logic and syntax and shit. The things we do are pretty interesting and cool and sometimes its a little tedious and fucking annoying when shit doesn't work the way you wanna but all in all its coo.

I'll let you know how I feel after this next quarter cause I heard shit gets real

Thanks for your input dude, any info is good info I guess, and I would do nursing if it wasn't so impacted at EVERY school. I'm afraid by the time I graduate the nursing field is going to be flooded with all those people flocking into that field.
