托福独立口语基础段真题训练(A friend of yours wants to go to university)
A friend of yours wants to go to university next year but cannot decide on a major field of study. What advice would you give your friend to help make this decision?
This is the question that plagues thousands of newly minted college students each year, who have nightmares of walking off the stage at graduation directly into an unemployment line. So, here are my tips for him or her.
First of all, curiosity won't kill you. Students and parents alike should pepper their college with questions about individual majors. Speak with officials in the career service offices and the departments themselves to learn as much as you can about the major before you commit.
Secondly, make sure it's your passion. Many students get stuck on the idea that they have to have a clear vocational goal in order to choose a major. And students who don't follow their hearts will ultimately hurt their chances of a successful and satisfying career in the long term. So, choose a major that you are passionate about, even if you're unsure about where it might lead, and what starting salary it might yield. Such factors won't matter in the long run.
