>>1068461 yes its one of the worst possible decisions you can make, unless you just want to network all of college and get a non degree related job, in which case its merely a degree that says "went to university" which is a requirement for many jobs
>>1068717 Cont. I'm going to elaborate because this board is so damn toxic. I've worked hard for a little more than half a decade in a dozen fields, likely put out more resumes and had more interviews than everyone in my family combined. If you want to major in EE you can. Your job opps will be greater than someone in the liberal arts. I work right next to an EE that graduated from UTD in 91. Work experience trumps most degrees. That being said if you're working in specific fields you need a specific degree for advancement most of the time. You can get a grad degree later on in the field of your choice.
>>1068732 People are going to post shitty tiered majors. Nobody gives a fuck what you majored in. Do you do work? Are you fun to be around?
I interviewed a girl for a data entry position. I asked her 3 times what she can do. She could have said anything related to her skillset, type, stand, move boxes. I wpuld've hired her. Instead she answered ' I'm looking for something part time because I go to school full time.'
People like that will always suck to work with. Focus on yourself. You only get a few chances in life to spend 4 years reading classics. Sure you can get the same education with a library card but you should mostly focus on improving yourself.
Is your degree from a top-tier university? Do you have good marks? Are you adaptable? Can you sell yourself?
If you can answer in the affirmative, you will be fine. /biz/ has an obsession with STEM (probably because the board consists of 18-22 year-olds) but the reality is that most people do not work within the confines of their degree.
>>1068461 The point that most people that make "XD FAST FOOD LIBERAL ARTS!!!!!!!!!" memes never make, is that a liberal arts degree is stupid because you're better off pursuing that industry without taking 4 years at a college.
Creativity is best learned on your own, at your own pace (usually faster than courses at college take) and you'll have a more impressive portfolio, and likely better connections, if you're ACTUALLY passionate about the job. The problem is, most people that go into an art post-secondary program are only doing it because they don't want a job that requires problem solving. Their parents told them they're great at (drawing/dancing/photography/etc), and they want to get "the college experience", so they to go school for something they don't really care about.
