I am now through a semester of an environmental class called “soil and water science”. My expectations for this class was few. I must say I wasn’t too excited about taking a class about “just” soil. But as I’ve mentioned in earlier posts it has been very interesting and I’ve learned a lot.
It has unfortunately made me worried; worried about the future. Even thought this has been an interesting class I don’t know what I can do with it in the future. How many jobs exist out there that has to do with any of this and how much money can I earn??????? I don’t know if this could be something I could work with in the future. It is interesting and more fun than most other office jobs out there, but Im worried about job possibilities and money.
Does my environmental science major mean I have to work with something like this in the future?
My plan when I started Queens was to study environmental science and have a concentration in business. I thought (and still think) that that could be a terrific combinations because many companies start caring about the environment more and more every year, and I think we could make a lot of money by being educated in these two subjects. When I heard that I can’t have a concentration I now feel kind of concerned about my future. Maybe I have to go back to Sweden and study business after my four years, or continue study here.
I looked around on the internet to find job possibilities in the environmental sector and I actually found many alternatives out there. I hope that after my four years here I hopefully have a clearer view of what I want to do because it seem like there are many FUN jobs (that I think is fun).
Here are some good websites to look at if you want to research work possibilities:
This course has made me more worried than excited. I hope it wouldn’t have been like that but it is the truth. I have always had a hard time thinking/planning for the future but it is time to realize that it can be good to make up a plan soon, I am soon turning 20…
