I went to community college for two years to to get the general courses out of the way with a plan to transfer to a university. Problem is, I never went to class and didn't even get passed community college. Do better than me. I am pretty much a complete bum right now with no job.

Having a business major is a joke these days in my opinion. It's almost to the point that it is a negative on a resume especially if it is from a below average college/university. Same with MBA. If you are an MBA from a top school then welcome to bank otherwise you are a dime a dozen.

Accounting is interesting. I worked in a big 4 firm for 6 years (not as an accountant) and the accountants get a ton of experience but work way too much and are basically box checkers. Accountants don't make a company run, they just make the numbers add up. It's a donkey job and keeps getting worse as regulations keep getting more complex. BUT it's a solid desk job and there is a ton of demand for accountants. And many accountants branch out into general business later.

You don't want to find yourself running an accounts payable department.

My advise would be to avoid locking yourself in for as long as possible and do something fun. Unless you are gunning for law school it will probably not matter that much what your major is.

Major in chicks and beer is my advice.

As someone about to graduate in May, go in undecided if you're having any confusion about what you want to do. I changed my major the summer before my Freshman year, and have wanted to change it multiple times after but wouldn't because it would put me behind. Be undecided.

This explains why you are always in a cranky mood and bashing every post you see and sight.I hope you find a job in 2013 and I wish you a happy new year in advance.

You are way too young to know this, but.............Classic.

Seriously, Engineering is a great profession to go into. There are almost as many different engineering fields as there are doctors.

If basic high school physics is like Chinese to the kid, I would NOT recommend engineering.

Thanks for all the advice, I'm by no means looking to settle on something now but I just want to start getting ideas on what would be some good things to look at going in to.
