I go to UC Davis in CA and i am a transfer student from a community college. This is my first quarter here and after hearing different advice from everybody about what's important to accomplish in college I am really confused
I am a Managerial Economics major but i am not a hundred percent sure what I want to do as a career yet. I am a VERY sociable person, I am very good at starting a conversation with anybody regardless of the situation. So I don't think communication skills are going to be a problem. I was intially thinking of maybe doing Finance or Accounting but I do not want to sit on a computer or do paperwork the whole day. So now im leaning more towards maybe Marketing, Human Resources or maybe an administrative job.
I haven't done any internships yet. The only jobs I've had were at fry's electronics and a banker at wells Fargo for a summer job
I am pretty sure that i want to go on to grad school ( maybe get a MBA ) but like i said Im not a hundred percent sure yet. I most likely will because everybody has a bachelors degree these days and i've heard that employers look for prospective employees who have further education.
There is only so much time in the day. What should i focus on? How important are internships compared to grades? Should i join a fraternity? ( Even though it seems all they do is party and waste time doing stuff for the fraternity. Not to mention the enormous costs). I am only going to be here for a little more than 2 years so I want to make the most out of this opportunity
Any and all comments/advice would be appreciated. Thanks
