College Major: passion or job?

You are likely to change careers 7 times in your life. That is once every 7 years.

The market will change. Your passion will shift. You will gain new skills, and old ones will become obsolete or inadequate.

Career building is neither about following your passion, nor about getting a job. It is about learning the skills you need to live where your passion meets what the market will pay for. Doing this well in college is the first step to a lifetime of successfully reinventing yourself in future

Choose well, but don’t worry if you don’t already know where that center is. 80% of those entering college (even those with declared majors) don’t know.
