College Degree Choices

You are in the last half of high school or just beginning college with the core curriculum. How do you choose what subject you want to major in?

Most students will approach this question from an emotional standpoint. What do they like doing? What are they passionate about? or what have they dreamt of becoming all of their lives?

Beyond these questions, it is only smart to look at where current jobs are available. After all, choosing a profession that is not in demand is not the smart thing to do. Additionally, choosing a profession that is predicted to die out is only going to require a person to have to get retrained in he future for a career that actually has solid jobs.
