How did you decide your major?

I am having trouble thinking about what I want to be in the future. I have always wanted to be a teacher, but recently I have been having mixed feelings. How did you you make your decision?

Thank you comment icon In middle school they made us take a career assessment test to see what careers might be right for us. I found this test very helpful it gave me career paths I never thought about going into. Teachers is a great occupation to get into hope you figure out what career path you want to get into. Devetra

Jenna’s Answer

The best part about being human is that you can change your mind. It's good to have doubts and explore them. Take your core classes and don't worry about how they would apply to a teaching career. See how you feel about being in a class and your instructors. Learn everything you can and schedule an appointment with your academic adviser, they can provide some guidance to figure out what you want your future career to be.

Hi Hannah!
I completely agree with Jenna. I flip flopped my major a few times through college, to a point where I ended up double majoring in Education & Business because I kept switching off between the two and by Senior Year realized I should just do both to keep my options open - so sometimes changing your mind really can be advantageous ;). It's important to pay attention to what's bringing you energy in your learning/classes, where you feel most engaged, challenged, surrounded by people you can learn and grow from. Looking back on my college experience, I wish I gave myself more time to really LEARN and worry less about the result after college (career!) because I think it would have allowed me to pay attention to my interests & passions to make that career decision clearer.
I wanted to be a teacher and then experiencing a few business courses, I changed my mind. I then ended up going into sales and found a management role for sales reps early in their career - which provides an opportunity for me to "teach" and "coach" but in a sales environment. So listen to your gut, your desires, your questions and continue to be curious with yourself & those around you!
Good luck!
Abbey
