So even since the start of my college life, I was going for the health professions but it didn't work out as I got very lazy as time goes and my gpa got low and absolutely lost any interest in going for that career.
I was taking a gap year to prepare for DAT then decided to go back to school to get a IST major(since I don't have to take calc II compared to CS).
I still need finish my first major--Bio(will be able to get the major by next semester spring 2021)
So the point is, this is my 6th year of undergraduate, and need 4 more semesters to complete the major requirements. (expect to graduate FALL 2022)
The reason why I went for getting an IST major is because I heard most tech jobs look for cs related major and you would get eliminated through AI even before actual people get to see your resume. And also thought having a major would be better in the long run. and being in a school, I would have more resource to get a decent job... (career fair, more time for internships, etc.)
But lately I was wondering if it would be doable with CS minor to be competitive enough for the job market. I do want to get a programming/information science related/cyber security/data science related job... I would consider getting a Masters degree while I work if this works out.
Is it better to have a stronger foundation(major) at the start of my career? or have minor and be less competitive at the start but end up having one year(1 1/2 year if i could get a job right after I graduate) job experience.?
Should i just continue for MAJOR(Fall 2022) or stop with minor(Spring 2021)?
I really need advices from people who really know what's going on in reality in job market because there is no one in this field around me
Thank you for your time for reading this long thread!
