Get the Job You Want, Not the Job Everyone Else Wants

Posted in Blog, Ford Myers, News item | Tags , , , has a great article advising college students to major in what interests them instead of the “golden majors” that are “guaranteed” to get them a job and a big salary after graduation.

It’s hit the nail on the head. First of all, there are no guarantees. Especially not now. So don’t listen to anyone who tells you that such-and-such an area of study makes you a shoe-in for a six-figure job right out of school.

Second, do you really want to be doing a job that you have no interest in doing? How do you expect to remain competitive and keep pushing yourself in your field if you don’t care about your field? How will your career advance if you don’t have the passion to take it as far as it can go?
