Re: Pick a major for me. PLEASE.

  • I have a BS in marine biology and worked in a lab with viruses after graduation since I couldn't find a marine biology job.

    Then I got a BS in Nursing and I'm a bedside nurse....for now. One of these days I will do something in nursing that doesn't hurt my back!

  • I am an audiologist. It is 8 years of full time school, and the job situation in the area is not wonderful. So, I am not sure I would recommend that if you are planning on staying around here.

    I was a Hearing and Speech Sciences Major - Speech path is only a masters, so that might be more doable and I think there are much more jobs..

    I would recommend becoming a hearing aid dispenser IF you like old people. As long as you have a high school diploma it is a training and state certification and the money can be very good. There are TONS of locations that hire hearing aid dispensers in this area (hence the reason the audiology market is bummed...so much competition for hearing aid sales). I had this license and did this for a few years before grad school and really enjoyed it.

  • I have my bachelors in exercise physiology and am working on my doctorate in physical therapy. It's 7 years of full-time school when it is all said and done. Physical therapist assistants only require 2 years and they are in demand.

    Thanks! I love it. It's a great way to use psychology in the legal system, and be involved in the trial process without actually being a lawyer. It's fun to try to figure out how people will think about the information you present them with, and how their life experiences impact their interpretation. :)

    This.  My concentration was in film and tv production.  After I escaped McD's I stopped looking for a while.  I will probably go for my M.F.A and then look for a "Grown-up" job.  

  • B.A. in Psychology!  I really thought I was going to go all the way to become a psychologist, but the last semester I was turned off by one professor.  That's all it took.  I had already planned to move to Florida, so I moved with the intention of being a bartender until I was ready to pick a new direction.  Then one day it hit me.  I had an epiphany.  I wanted to become a teacher.  So I did.  It is truly my calling. I LOVE my job and wouldn't trade it for anything!  I LOVE my students.  It was the best decision I made for myself.  If you don't know what you want to do, I recommend spending some time in a classroom to see if it's something you'd like.  

     (BTW...I hated all of the education courses I had to take...they treat you like elementary students...but it was worth it!)

  • B.S. and M.S. in Learning Disabilities and Emotional Disturbances. I have an autism endorsement and I teach 1st grade students with autism. I love my job!!!! I am going back to school next year for Applied Behavior Analysis and after a few more years of teaching I hope to do private therapy. 
  • I was a high school guidance counselor before I had babies.  I got a BS in psychology and a MA in school counseling and guidance.  I loved my job!

  • BA in Business (Marketing). I don't use my degree though. I'm going back to school to get a Master's in Accounting. Hopefully this will help me "move up" in the corporate world.

  • I have a BS in Elemetary Education and an MBA.  Right now I am working as an assistant in the medical field.  My dream job would be to have my own business (even if it is just a tiny one).
  • I have a BS in Social Work and a Masters in Public Administration as well as a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management. I work in Global Health/International Development, but in the past managed programs mostly for at-risk teens or kids with life-threatening illnesses. 

    Have you ever considered sports marketing? I could see you doing something like that. Or look at some of the jobs that are with professional teams and what degrees they require. Could be very cool. (Some of them even have Foundations which involve coordinating signed balls, tickets, special events, etc. for area nonprofits, kids, Make-A-Wish, etc. I always thought that would be a very cool job.)

    I was a rope course counselor in college. It was a lot of fun. If you like working with kids and being outdoors that could be something to look into... something like Outward Bound, maybe? If you're not outdoorsy, of course, this one is out.

    Colleges are a lot of fun to work for too. Maybe you could get a job in a college advising office? That way you could learn about all different fields and get an idea of what you want to do? 

  • I have a BA in English and Technology, Literacy, and Culture (the study of how technology impacts society).  I work as a training specialist in the software industry.  I love  my job. 

    Previously, I've worked in education as a teacher trainer and outdoor environmental educator. 

    ETA:  I have a friend who is as obsessed with sports as you and she got a degree in Marketing and Sports Management.  Her first job was in sales for the Texas Rangers.  Now she is in sales for the medical field (more $$$).  

  • My undergrad was in Communications, I wish it had been psychology.  I decided my senior year that Comm wasnt for me, but it was too late for me to change.  I got a job as a case manager for the state when I moved to FL. I really enjoyed working with kids and testifying in court etc.  It was a lot of hours though, and not very good pay.  I also worked for the hospital as a Medical Social Worker for several years.  I went for my MA in Counseling and I am an Elementary Guidance Counselor. I aboslutely love my job, and I really feel it is my calling!!!
  • Thank you, everyone. :I seriously feel like I have career and major ADD. :/

     

    Thiskindoflove & moonstone: Thanks! That actually sounds really cool. I wanted to go into sports med, but that's not for me at all. I'd love to do something sports related, and I am not opposed to traveling... but I don't know where to go with that. Blah.
