I was talking to a friend who is a successful headhunter. I asked him about majors that are "in demand" in todays economy. He noted that if your kids major in any of the following majors, they should have no problem getting a job:
1. Health Care
4. Hard sciences such as engineering.
5. Certain language specialties such as Arabic ( if very competant)
6. Criminal studies due to the large increase in enforcement positions.
He noted that most of the other majors will have a hard time getting employed. I don't know how right he might be,but it does give you something to think about.
