Following the money

Students come to school to fulfill their passion, but is that the right way to go?

Every year, hundreds of students graduate with different majors.

Their majors, however, don’t always end up being the most financially stable ones and might even land them into jobless situations.

There are always the obvious degrees which are the top earners on any list such as the medical or business fields.

When it comes to majors and deciding whether to follow a passion or to be financially secure, money should be the one opted out to win between the two.

Passion for a career will not pay for the reality of life that hits one with things like paying bills and buying essentials for daily life.

While having a passion for a degree is nice, it would sure be a misfortune if you find yourself jobless right after graduating just because that certain degree on that so dedicated passion is low on jobs or financially unstable.

There are other majors which aren’t well off such as art or philosophy.

While passion may fuel the motivation to graduate and go on with a major, it won’t fuel an empty stomach.

However, anyone can simply go back to school to major in his passion once financially secure and able to support himself without having doubts of getting a job, after getting a degree in the ideal major.

Money plays a big part in the daily lives of every single person.

Sitting at home with a degree that was a passion in school but useless in the real world seems like a waste of education.

Choosing money over passion the first time will probably be the better of both in the long run.
