Most students choose their major with a career in mind. Academic studies will prepare you to be successful in your future career, but it is important for students to keep in mind that once they graduate, they will have to begin the search for a job. Employers look for students who not only excelled in their studies but also can bring some experience with them in the form of internships, research, or other activities.
