Throughout middle school and high school, whenever someone would ask the classic question, What do you want to be when you grow up? My mind would always blank.
Sure, I had dream jobs, but nothing realistic ever came to mind. I never thought it was very urgent, so I always put off starting to make that decision.
Come November last year when it came time to start applying to schools, I had to start narrowing it down in order to have something to put down as a major in my applications.
Some schools hold a lot of weight to what you put down as your major: at some colleges, you’re stuck with whatever you put down on that application. You definitely don’t want to choose the wrong one, that’s for sure.
The best thing you can do is to try to start having an idea of what you’d like to do as a career way before you begin college applications. But where do you start? Well, the place I started was? Google News, to be honest.
