"I chose my accounting major to be in corporate accounting because it made the most sense for me, at the time. I still want to be a corporate accountant, but I now see there are many forensic accounting coursework opportunities which would have been a fascinating area of focus as well. It still goes hand-in-hand with corporate accounting, so perhaps I will take some coursework like this in the future."
"I chose a degree in business administration with a major in human resources. I chose this major to compliment my desire to work in the recruitment industry. I am thankful that I made this choice because human resources will always need a human-to-human touch. I have a highly communicative approach to my work that will ensure my success in this field."
"When choosing my major, I wanted to take a unique approach that would stand out on my resume, and in my interviews. This desire to be different is why I chose a Business management degree with a major in management and a minor in economics. This combination is not as common as accounting or finance and gave me the skills that I need to jump into a management level role earlier on in my career than most recent grads."
"My marketing degree is focused on business to business marketing with a minor in international business. I have a keen interest in building experiences from other cultures which is why I am very pleased with my post-secondary choices."
"I chose a major in communications because I knew the knowledge would benefit me and my work, no matter which path I took. I am happy with the decision; however, at times, I wonder if a more niche line of study would be beneficial as well. I know that I can always take additional coursework if the need comes up."
"I chose a major in English because I feel that one can never be too well versed in their language! The skills that I learned can pertain to every aspect of my life, not just my career. I am happy with my decision to go this route."
"I chose to specialize in special education and am thrilled that I made this decision. I have a huge heart for children with extra challenges and look forward to applying my knowledge in the classroom very soon."
