So here is, I think, an interesting question. What did you do for your education, and what do you now do (if you're finished with the education part) for a career? Are the two related? If not, what skills and tools, if any, do you bring to your work from your education?
I ask as a guy with two religion degrees who runs TR, so yeah. Thing is, I think my education prepared me well for many aspects of my job. Who knew?
Are you in a similar situation, or are your career and educational experience more closely aligned? How important is choosing the right college major to eventual success in that field? If you were hiring someone in your field, would experience or educational background count for more? Discuss.
