What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

"Business Major: Words To The Wise."
When you are choosing a major, choose one within the business school, or if you can't get in, get an Economics major. The reality is that once you graduate you are trying to get a job- in business. Most jobs that will appeal to you will be within a business and your typical entry level hire that you will be competing with will likely have a business degree. And if you're going for a more creative role, its easier for someone to hire and marketing major who wants to go into design, than a history major that is trying to go into investment banking. Think ahead, and as much as it is disappointing to admit, do not "follow your interests" when it comes to picking a major. Pick smart, get a reliable/respectable degree, and then work in the industry you want to once you graduate. Either way, you will be within some sort of business role.
