When you entered college did you find yourself having a hard time choosing a major? Did you find yourself stressing about which life path to choose? Truthfully, I didn’t envision myself working for an advertising agency like Patterson Riegel. I graduated with my degree in education…slightly off the advertising path. For those of you struggling to find the right life path, you’re in luck! There’s a new major in town and it’s called ‘Social Media.’ Yes, you can now go to college to become an expert everything social media. Hold on, before you wear your best sweats to class anticipating surfing Facebook all day, take a look at the article below. (Believe me, it’s not as easy as one may think.) Soshable.com has recently posted an article introducing Social Media as the up and coming college major. Granted, this particular major has only reached one college thus far, but with social media knowledge becoming a demand for many businesses more colleges may be adopting this major sooner rather than later. This may or may not be the best news since being a ‘gym teacher’ became an option for college majors…but how long will this craze last? Could you see yourself working with social media until retirement?
