There's a Big Change Coming!

Lately, I've been reading tons of "College to Career" books and almost all of them start with the same tip. "Do What You Like." I've been thinking about that tip a lot. I'm a sophomore in Berkeley and have been studying Management the whole time. But...I think I want to change it.

Of all the classes I've been taking in school, my favorites have been my economics classes. I'm good with charts and numbers. I learn pretty quickly in those classes, too. And lately, people have been telling me that I'm pretty good at changing people's minds. Its like that quote in the movie Tommy Boy, I can "sell a ketchup popsicle to a lady in white gloves." So, I'm thinking of changing my major to Marketing.

Tomorrow, after I'm done with my test in Newark, I'm going down to admissions and talking to my trusty advisors, Kaersten, to get some help on how to go about doing this. When I get all the info I need, I'm going to head over to West Paterson and change everything around. I'd rather go there because I know the advisement department a little better and most of them know how I am about details and step-by-step instuctions.

I know I'm probably gonna have to take a few more credits and pay a little more but it will definitely be worth it.

So, there's my first step in "college to career"! I'm going to major in Marketing! I'm excited!
