Myth-Busting With Your Career ConsultantsMyth 1Everyone has declared a major by their sophomore year of college.Brittany Kinard: This commonly held belief was simply false for me. This mythis usually centered on the number of hours required before you must choose amajor. I changed my major 5 times! I met with my advisors many times to work outtransference of credits, but I did graduate in 4 years. The moral of my story is, don’tbe afraid to use your first two years to explore! Learn about yourself. Take classes forthe sake of learning. Finally, if a major feels wrong to you, don’t be afraid to exploreoptions and meet regularly with Career Consultants and Advisors who can help you.Myth 2 Choosing a major is the biggest decision you will make.Katelyn Kivett: Choosing your major really isn’t all that different from other decisions!What you have to ask is: What do I want to spend my time learning about for the next2-3 years? When I started college, I wanted to be a news anchor, but when I tookmy first communications class, I didn’t enjoy the material or my professor, and I didn’tfeel quite comfortable around my classmates. Rather than stay in that major, I spenttime on self-exploration, and taking classes that interested me. I ended up majoringin Psychology, which has brought me into a career counseling career that I love!Myth 3 Your major is the most important thing that employers look for.Whitney Prescott: I majored in Business Administration, yet in my current role, acounseling degree is often preferred. I gained career services-related experience as agraduate assistant and was able to showcase my relevant and transferable skills on myresume and cover letter. Don’t be afraid to apply to jobs that might not traditionallyhire your major! Many employers are open to a variety of majors and tend to be moreinterested in your transferable skills, leadership experience, and ability to be trained todo a job. Every major at UGA can lead to a fulfilling and successful career.Myth 4 You need to decide your major right away to be successful.Suzanne Voigt: I arrived at college a sophomore due to credits from high school. Myacademic advisor told me I should choose a major right away so I wouldn’t lose time earningcredit. I planned to use my first year to explore my interests, so I did that through the help ofmy college’s Career Center. Though I didn’t end up in a field that directly matched my major,each provided a strong foundation for my overall skill set and love of learning. Considerareas of study that will enhance your skill sets and will provide a solid foundation for yourlife. Study something you’ll enjoy studying—your life will be fuller for it in the long run!Myth 5 Your major will lead directly to a career or specific industry.Kate Templeton: Sometimes this happens, and sometimes it doesn’t. If you’re majoring insomething specific, you may hold a job that matches your major perfectly. I was a MiddleGrades Education major, and then taught middle school—but here I am in the Career Center.During my time as a teacher, and through various jobs and volunteer positions, I realized mypassion lay in working with college students. I then found my way to grad school at age 29.Did my major lead me here? Kind of; it was more about choices I made and people I metthat led me to my dream job. Your major is what you study, while your career is defined bymany experiences and events that lead you places you may never have thought of.9
