Many students lack information about what classes they might take as a certain major, as well as, information about many different kinds of occupations that they can pursue with various majors. Some majors directly relate to future occupations, such as nursing = nurse, education = teacher, and accounting = accountant. Other majors may leave you wondering, “What can I do with this major?”
It helps to do some research to discover the options. This research can be done by using websites, books, and real people, too!
A Note about Transferable Skills
Some people think that they must choose a major that is directly related to a career field, such as Social Science = Social Worker to find a job. Not True.
According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), employers are looking for job seekers who possess these skills which can be developed from a variety of majors and experiences, and then transferred to a variety of workplaces.
