What Can I Do with This Major?

Would you like a clearer idea of the career opportunities you'll have with the major you've chosen or majors you're considering?

One resource is LearnHowToBecome.org, which provides detailed insight into 45 of today’s most popular career fields, including accounting, engineering, medical assisting, nursing, firefighting, financial advising, and teaching.

Each career has its own customized how-to guide, which starts by addressing important questions such as “What does a medical assistant do?” and “What skills are needed to succeed?” The guide then itemizes the educational and professional steps needed to enter the field, including coursework in high school, a college degree, on-the-job training, apprenticeships, and professional exams and certifications.
