Now as my senior year approaches I wondered whether I should even study marketing at all, it comes with the nerves I guess. But as I’ve started to get into more of my career classes I’ve realized, marketing can take many different forms, and surprisingly I have become interested in sales. I never thought in my life that I would be interested in sales. Going door to door selling products? That’s not me. Cold calling? Nope. But I learned that sales is more than just that. Doesn’t mean I won’t be doing any of the things I just listed, it just means that I can move up from that.
Change is scary! With one year left in my college career I don't want to be pushed back any more than I have to. And then of course the doubts come into play, will I be any good at it? I can be pretty shy, how am I going to sale contracts to huge companies?
That being said, I haven’t made the change official yet. But changing or adding things to your major is totally normal. Many students do it. Degree changes are nothing to be scared of, but it's also nothing to take lightly. I myself have to take some time to think, is this really something I want to do? Or will it just push me back and use up my financial aid? Tough questions to answer, but any addition to your degree can’t hurt. As for now, I am thinking of talking with my academic counselor and figuring things out.
