Blog 5: Turning Unprofitable Degrees into Lucrative Career Paths

  1. This article talks about how a large portion of current college students aren’t choosing to major in finance or computer science,- the most profitable majors- but they are majoring in communication, psychology and other social sciences. These students aren’t getting jobs that just pertain to their majors. This article states that social science majors are getting high-paying jobs in the business and tech world through self-marketing techniques on LinkedIn. I chose this article because I found it interesting that there seems to be a trend of recent college grads getting jobs in fields that aren’t directly related to their major.
  2. The data from this article was collected through LinkedIn and was compiled via contributors at Forbes.
  3. The data collected just showed what majors were currently the most popular. I am wondering, what majors are getting jobs in specific fields?

    But what data were collected through LinkedIn? Survey data? Was it data that LinkedIn members posted about themselves? Be more specific about #2.
