Going to Work: Create a Career
Some people simply have "jobs," while others have "careers."
What's the difference? With a career, the kind of work you do is based on your interests. It's a path you've chosen. College can help you turn your passions and interests into a career you love.
Fast Fact: Choosing a college major does not limit you to one type of career.

Not sure what to major in? Don't worry. Many schools don't require you to choose (declare) a major right away. And you can always change your major later on.
Fast Fact: Most college students change their majors at least once.
