Making the Transition
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has
genius, power, and magic. Begin it now.
It may surprise you to know that most graduates are not working in fields directly related to their majors. Do not worry. They did not choose wrong majors at all. What they studied in school is just not focused on a career. Often your major does not end up defining the course your life takes, and when that happens, you must determine what will. The answer lies partly within you and partly in finding satisfying opportunities. It now becomes your task to learn how to match your own evolving skills and interests to opportunities; and those discoveries can become your internal passport to exciting new worlds—of work, that is. Formulating your career compass is not so easy to do now, let alone in the unforeseen future. But, if you are willing to do the hard work, it will pay off in so many different ways, from finding what makes you happy to securing a job that can support your lifestyle.
