Most people, when they go…

“Most people, when they go to college, they’re generally under the impression that there’s about thirteen jobs in the world. That’s all the jobs that exist; you have thirteen choices for what you want to do for the rest of your life. Oh and by the way you have to decide that now. As a college sophomore. Because there’s no changing later. Whatever it is you pick, that is going to be your job. Forever. You can’t change it. Whenever you walk into a job, even twenty years later, you’re going to have to show them your degree, and say ‘This is my major. This is what I have to do.’. Oh and by the way, once you have that degree, you’re entitled to that job forever. That’s it. As soon as you’re handed that degree, a big crowd of employers are going to run up to you at graduation and hand you a bunch of proposals and job offers and you get to pick the best one. Anywhere you want to live, with enough money to buy a house.” ~Marco Arment
