Through this apprenticeship, the one thing I am realizing more and more is how technologically dependent companies and businesses are these days and how rapidly this dependency is increasing. I chose my major because I thought that knowing the economic and theoretical side of how businesses work in general would make me the most able to give back to the best of my ability after I graduate. I also chose to learn about international relations to study the history of dynamics and cultures. However, I feel like I should maybe reconsider or think hard about my major to change it or maybe consider minoring in something more practical to give me technical skills that are more relevant for future jobs.
I know that having a theory-based liberal education can help me see things and solve problems differently and there is no major that will give you all the skills needed for a job. I also understand that for jobs, no matter how much you learn during school, you will probably be required to learn many of new skills on site. You have to learn quickly to be an efficient worker. However, I am starting to feel that to be a more valuable employee, having that base of technical skills as a foundation could be a lot more valuable because of the terminology and straightforwardness of the concept in those classes.
