What's your Major?

December 03, 2012 @ 03:22:27
@D I interned at an oiling company over the summer filing papers and crap, but there was this guy there who was a geologist, fresh out of college, making 100k+ a year. I guess it all depends where you get hired

I'm guessing you're a dude, my buddy's goes to school for nursing too, might seem weird to some people or gay for a man to become a nurse, but I just gotta give you props, it's a growing and in-need job, and my friends basically set for working at UPMC in Pittsburgh after he graduates in a year. So again, props for studying that major.

And am I the only one that feels like if you aren't going for medicine/law/engineering/business it's almost pointless going to college?

True, I didn't realize you can go into the oiling industry with a geology degree making mad money.

I thought male nurses were common? I know plenty of male nurses. I guess it depends on where you live.
And nope for the question. More than half the people that gets a BA dont even have a job or career that had anything to do with their major.

All employers want is a piece of paper saying you went to college.

It all depends on the person. While it's true some majors have better income and more job opportunities, it doesn't guarantee you anything.

There's stories of liberal arts majors ending up at Starbucks or dead end jobs etc but I think those people just didn't make use of their time correctly. If they took internships during summers, there's no reason why they wouldn't get hired in something related to their major. To be honest, I don't even think there's dead end jobs, but there are dead end mentalities

Internships are important for all students but especially for Finance/Accounting majors wanting to work at a BB or Big 4. Nowadays BB and Big 4 recruit almost all their entry levels straight from their summer class so if you want a job at a certain company, aim to get an internship there summer after junior year or chances of you getting a job there will be severely reduced.

You listed law in there and I can tell you right now there are too many lawyers walking around and not enough people willing to pay for one. Even if you go to a T14 there's no guarantee you can land a job. For medicine, I wouldn't recommend someone going to med school unless they actually want to, It takes 4 years of undergrad with heavy coursework in the sciences and then more years in med school and you might not even make it in the end. All that loans and debt pile up. Most doctors don't start making real money until like late 20s/early 30s and it will take a while to pay back loans.

Essentially, yes.

I just dislike how college grads bitch about not being able to find a job. Who told them to be a Art History major, etc.?

no science majors for the most part make a decent living and also if you major in art/ history you can always become a teacher.

college should be about you pursuing something you love, and if you really love what you do you'll find a job and make money.

Be about it

Ayo nursing is piff for so many reasons smokeyface smokeyface smokeyface I was studying physiotherapy but after taking up some part-time work in a hospital as a health care assistant (aka nurse's bitch), I realized that being a nurse is a worthwhile job with heaps of variety - you can pretty much work anywhere in the world with it. As such I've transferred into nursing for this coming semester. Although it is true that some small minded people still hold the old world view that all nurses are female and those that aren't are gay, us straight male nursing students are laughing all the way to the bank, a guy:girl ratio of literally 3:150 and a practically guaranteed job (male nurses are generally highly sought after due to the fact there's not a great number of them) with lots of different opportunities and career choice pathways, I'm interested in mental health nursing myself.

Or else you will hate it.
