hey! i was just wondering what everyone did for a living and how you like it.  Is  it what you had planned to be? What was your major in college? And if you could do it over, what would you have gone into instead?

I'm a junior in college and need to declare my major by the end of this semester.  I have no idea what to do! I just know its going to be somewhere in the business field.   I had wanted to go to law school, but my GPA had taken a turn for the worse and I dont think I'll be able to get into law school even if i wanted.  I had considered finance, but haven't taken a single finance course yet.  I have no idea what I like or would want to do.  I kind of got stuck in business, and after completing so many courses already I cant get out of it. 

I thought I'd like to hear what everyone else did.  Maybe it would be able to help me.  Thanks!!

hi
i cant really help you.. but wanted to tell you that you are not alone! i am also a junior in college, and i had been stuck in the liberal arts category since i took all of my gen eds to fill that category.. so ive decided on communications. its a good general major that can branch into pretty much anything. however, most people say that its not the type of major you have, but whether you get your bachelors or not...  sorry im of no real help, but i think a lot of college students are lost! can you just get a general business degree that will be useful for most or any jobs? well, good luck in what you choose hopefully you'll get some help!!

Before I bore you with my story, I think the best thing you should do when choosing a major is ask yourself what you would do if you didn't have to work.    What is your passion, and then try to find something related to that. You may even think your passion is silly, or can't make any money, but I bet there is a way somehow that it can relate to something you love to do.  Even if you have to take a few steps back in the college work you've already done -  to make the right steps forward.  This is the rest of your life we are talking about - and in my opinion, it's worth it.

It took me a while ot figure out what I wanted.  Right out of high school, I went straight to college, and that was a mistake, because I partied way too much the first semester.  Barely remember it.    And talk about GPA....eh, what GPA?!! 

So I took a couple of years off and got tired of just trying to make ends meet  I know I wanted something creative.  I chose to study broadcast writing.   This time in college, I worked my arse off, and ended up on the Deans list, and got scholarships that then helped pay for the rest of my college.

I then ended up doing an internship at a TV station. After my internship,  I actually got a job at that TV station, as a production assistant in the department that did commercials, segments, PSA's and then in six months,  I was promoted to Producer/Writer

IF I had to do it over again, I would have not continued to wear the producer hat for so long.  It was such a stressful job for my nature.  I think I was good at it because I can be a bit of a worry wart and am good at predicting things that can go wrong, and that is a quality that is needed in a producer, but I couldn't let it go when I would go home. 

I then decided to freelance, so I could at least get a break (so I thought) when I wanted.  My resume/demo site www.fosterideas.com  
I ended up getting hired to write a 1/2 local special which won and Emmy and a Telly.   But after that I was still hired to produce which I did do freelance for six years - up until this past January.  I got burnt out.   It seems all fun and exciting to others, but unless you are some big name talent, then you are pretty much a slave to the corporates who ACTUALLY control the content, and when  no one wants to spend money to make something right, then it becomes a drag. 

SO, I took a break in January, and just did things that I liked to do with no intention of making money, just to have fun.  Well, that's how BinkyBunny.com started.    The fun and relief that BinkyBunny gave me actually brought my creativity back, and I can feel my energy level coming back enough to start scriptwriting again.    (However, we are in the middle of moving so I don't have much time for anything until we finish unpacking.

So the bottom line is if I had stuck with my original plan to write, I think I would have been more relaxed and happier.    It took me a long time to not just go with the flow of the path, but to make my own path - and that can be scary, and that can be backstepping, but I what is equally scary (now that I experienced it) is being "stuck" in a career that you're not happy with.  A job/career is such a huge part of your life.

It's at least 8 hours of your day, plus the time you get ready, and the time you travel to and from, and the time you wind down from, so you really looking at 10 hours. 

So what would you like to spend 10 hours of your day doing?  What are you good at.  What can you do for long periods of time and it not burn you out?  Math, Art, Athletics, do you have a hobby that you could intertwine into a career somehow?

It's so funny you bring this up...

So I'm in my LAST year of college. Talk about being scared bunny-poo-less. I really can't believe that 4 years has gone by.. and now what? I'm an art student- I go to the school of the art institute of chicago. It's tied for the top ranking art school in the country... but that means squat. We have no majors here- everyone graduates with a BFA (bachelors of fine arts).

I've been looking at my art, and have reilized I don't have enough consistancy. I've only shown at a few venues, and am stumped. I really don't want to graduate and then have to work at Starbucks to pay off my loans (I used to work there). It's really scary. I'm hoping everything works out for the best. I have to go back and get a masters if I want to teach art- but there's no way of affording that now. And so, I'm trying to make as many connections as I can- whatever that means... maybe I can start painting rabbit portraits! ha!

I guess what I'm saying is no matter how much planning you do, something might come up... I'm really hoping a job comes up in the next few months. But, oh well... I kind of depressed myself now...
