The internet makes me feel embarrassed of my college major
Business marketing. I haven’t got hate of my major from students(although I don’t have that many STEM major friends). One time I was talking to one of my friend’s math professor who was 24. He asked me what my major was and I said what it was and he laughed and said “you’re never gonna get a job”. Ever since then, I google my college major sometimes and I see a lot of forums like these trashing it. I’m part of my school’s marketing club. I told the club leaders this information and they said don’t listen to them and almost all of the club alumni they knew got jobs right after graduation. Who should I trust the most? I mean, of course the bus school administration are gonna lie and say the major is great.16 replies
