The Deal With Majors

The Deal With Majors

by Erin Westerman I thought I was all set. It was the beginning of the second semester of my freshman year in college and I had my classes all lined up.  But then I made a decision. I wanted to change majors from Marketing Communication to Hospitality Management.  So, even though it was a very inconvenient time, and it swamped me with work to catch up on because I joined the classes a week late, I loved it! Here are some tips if you’re thinking about changing your major, or declaring a major at all. Talk about it Discuss with your parents (or other trusted adults) what you would be good at, thecourses you liked in high school, and even what you know you definitely don’t want to do. (Believe it or not, they will probably have some helpful advice!) If you have a lot of options floating around in your head, don’t be afraid to talk to your advisor, thedean of a specific major, or students who are currently studying in the field you may be interested in. Think about the long term I know, this can be terrifying. However, I think some of the best advice is to think about the careers you are interested in that correlate to your field of study. A lot of people work towards a degree without giving much thought to what they will do with it afterwards. Find out what types of jobs are out there to see what would best suit you. Dip your toes in I have so many interests that narrowing them down to one thing I want to focus on is nearly impossible. But, if you think you may be interested in something, give it a try. Like sociology? Take an introductory class and try it out. Chances are, it satisfies a core requirement. If you find out that it’s something you are interested in or you switch majors and have a ton of credits in one subject, make it a minor like I am doing with Communications. Do internships!!!! I cannot stress this enough! Part of the reason I chose Endicott was because of the internship program. Students have a four-week internship in January during both freshman and sophomore years, then a full semester internship senior year. I had already been leaning toward changing my major when I started my month working 9-5 in a public relations department. Getting out there and getting that real world experience helped to reaffirm that notion that this was not right for me, and I didn’t have to wait until after graduation to find that out. It’s okay to be...

John Lennon’s Take on: What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

John Lennon’s Take on: What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” You’ve probably been asked this several thousand times throughout your young life, though the wording changes slightly when you’re in college: “What do you want to do with your life?” If you answered “Be happy” what kind of reaction do you think you’d get? We addressed this topic to some degree in a recent #CampusChat on how to be the perfect job seeker.  Our discussion went from being proactive in searching for jobs and networking to making choices in college that lead specifically to jobs. For some, that raised the question “Is the point of college to get a job?” John Carpenter shared his thoughts on this topic in a blog post on his Ask John About College web site.  What do you think? What is the purpose of college? Read:  Job Skills, At College? by John Carpenter John recently published Your College Admissions Essay: Get Real for Smart College Visit. Post your replies as a comment here, or on our Facebook page. Special thanks to Donna Wertalik, marketing instructor in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech, for sharing this image....
