The answer is Maybe. It really depends on what industry you’re looking to get into and what the job seeker competition appears to make the norm. If you want to be a RN, no it doesn’t. If you want to be a Doctor, then yes.
some hospitals will prefer graduates of a certain alma mater. If you’re interested in business, it doesn’t matter where you get your undergrad. But achieving higher accolades at a “known” school will help you break through the herd. Ultimately what matters is that you earned a degree. It’ll be your drive that will propel you through your desired industry.
Monica recommends the following next steps:
- LinkedIn is an awesome tool for research. You can search companies for a company you’re interested in and see the kinds of educations their employees have.
- Never hesitate to spark a conversation with someone in your desired industry and asked them 2 important questions. 1. Do you enjoy what you do? 2. Would you have changed your major if you knew then what you know now?
- Whatever your major - never stop learning.
