Keep Your Chin Up!
Though, do not get disappointed in case you’ve considered one of these bottom five subjects to be your future career. The research institutes and university employers didn’t take in the survey, thus, the majority of arts and humanity degrees were left behind. The demand in a degree also differs due to the cultural, geographical and financial features of the region.
Some subjects are highly requested only in some sectors. For example, 29.6% of surveyed companies and institutions claimed that they would hire anthropology students for consultancy sector above students with other degrees.
Remember that coming after the money, neglecting the enjoinment of your craft won’t bode well for you. Try to imagine whether your lifestyle will match your future job daily schedule. Anyway, it’s never late to make some changes: whatever degree you chose to accomplish, you can always abandon the course, in case you feel it’s not your cup of tea.
Statistics is usually reliable and useful in terms of a decision-making. However, there’s no way that you can calculate the outcomes of your life. There has to be something that you find important to start building your career plans from. Recall, what Chuck Palahniuk once wrote: “If you don’t know what you want, you end up with a lot you don’t”. That is why ranking your career choice criteria will help make up your mind.
