College Students: Don't Major in English Like I Did

Try for a degree thaat will help land you a job.

I was an English major and I regret it. I chose to major in English because I LOVE reading and writing. (DUH!) I never once thought about whether it would get me a job.

But being an English major is pretty worthless in the job market. Reading and writing are necessities in daily life it’s not often that you’ll be asked to cite a classic on a job interview. (It might happen on a date, but never a job interview.)
