Hello everyone! I’m a senior in high school currently, applying to colleges (sigh). One of the things I have yet to figure out, probably the most important part of my application: my major. My junior year and up until now I had just been defeated enough to just say I was undecided or majoring in communications (seesaw-ing between the two), as I didn’t really have any idea of what I would like to do yet. But now, as I’ve been browsing hq overview for a few days (ex: google searching “is journalism worth it hq overview” and just soaking in information LMAO) I think I’ve come to the conclusion I may enjoy Marketing and International Business. (Why IB? I find international relations very interesting and I’ve read up on it, I think I would like it, and I’m fluent in English and Spanish and at a conversational level at Korean, but it’s advancing) Based on the comments and posts I had seen, the things people did with their degree after college seemed like things right up my alley of interest. I am more on the artsy side (photography, film, drawing, graphic design, etc) but still enjoy analytics and data… but I suck at math, if that makes sense. I was thinking about just majoring in IB but apparently that’s not a very good idea, and I guess I can kind of see why. I’d love working in the international aspect of things, and maybe even travel/work abroad instead of limiting myself domestically. Anyway, my question is: does this seem like a good idea? is there anyone here who has done that? I heard that with a marketing major, you have to do a lot of internships/networking and outside work (like being proficient in graphic design will help, etc). TDLR: I didn’t know what I was majoring in college until now, possibly. I’m thinking of pursing a major in marketing and a minor in international business. Is this a good idea? What goes the job market look for me? If you majored in marketing, was the degree a big help in your job? Or what degree would you get if you could go back in time, to pair with your marketing degree? What do you do now? Thanks in advance! – by hq overview moonkive – –
