Does the major you have affect your job in the future?

I know a couple people who have graduated college and have not a job specific to their majors. Depending on the field, they either work in low-paying jobs still trying to find higher wage jobs while others work in jobs that are related but not specific to their major #college #school #major #degree

Simeon’s Answer

Yes, the major you get affects the job prospects that you have for the future. If you're worried, look up job certificates like the ones at grow. google. com to see some additional ways to get jobs. It is easy to get stuck with a degree and not even able to get entry level work, so I'd recommend planning ahead of time to figure out what your options are as well as back up jobs you can work on qualifying for while you're at it. If you can land an internship, go ahead and try for it.

Yes, it does, if you are focused and have really specialized in it with good skills in your major, companies can hire you for job profiles related to it..

Elise’s Answer

Hello!


Yes of course it does, and also it doesn't have to. The reason you major can help you is because it shows employee's that you have specialized skills, and you have studied certain topics. If you are willing to do extra work, and find extracurricular ways which support certain skills, it can help you with your job search without the major. For example, I majored in Sociology and Asian Studies, and I also made sure I had experience with Adobe Creative sweet, and a portfolio which showcases my graphic design work.


Sincerely,
Elise
