The whole college experience is really more of a journey than anything else. But I guess that can be said about our lives. These journeys take us to new places and new experiences and sometimes we don’t even know where we will end up.
Case and point, my daughter began her college career like so many others not sure what she wanted to be or on a smaller note, study. In her sophomore year she decided on psychology, but still did not know what she wanted to do after college. So she made her way through her courses, but with no real passion about her new major.
In the summer of her sophomore year she interned for a finance company doing clerical work. She enjoyed the commute, enjoyed being in the city and began to understand what business was all about. During this summer she worked with the marketing department and found that she really liked it. In fact, at the end of the summer, they offered her an internship in the marketing department the following summer, which she took. She still never thought of herself as a being in the business world but enjoyed the job. It didn’t hurt that the company works with a lot of customers in the fashion world.
