Finding your dream major in college


It’s hard to pick a major sometimes. It’s scary too. I mean, you’re not DEFINITELY stuck with your choice for the rest of your life, if you don’t like it. But imagine if you loved your choice from the start, and that you can get your dream job right out of college??

I feel like that kind of happened to me. I asked myself several questions, and the job I got for after graduation is exactly what I want to do with my life!

So, I thought I’d pass along those questions. Who knows, maybe you’ll find something new about yourself.

  1. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to do ____________, and I think it’s interesting to me because ____________.
  2. If I had to go back to school tomorrow, I’d major in ____________, because ____________.
  3. My co-workers and friends always say I’m great at ____________, because ____________.
  4. The thing I love most about my current schoolwork/job/major is ____________, because ____________.
  5. If I had the right skill set, I’d definitely try ____________, because ____________.
  6. If my parents/boss/roommate/manager/professor would let me, I’d do more of ____________, because ____________.
  7. If I had a free Saturday that had to be spent just “working” on something, I’d choose ____________, because ____________.
  8. When I retire, I want to be known for ____________, because ____________.
  9. If I could choose one friend to trade jobs/majors with, I’d choose ____________, because ____________.

What’d you come up with?
