actually is IMPORTANT i want to say, this will make you easy to do thats job, but sometimes like me, i study LAW and master degree want to be notary of public but now i have job and own company running my own business, its far away from my studying, but its ok. the important is how you can manage your self to be successfully people no matter background of study you have.

For me, Yes! Definitely important. Like for example, you get a job which has no connection or relation to what you have studied or practiced in college, from that,. I think I'll feel upset. Studying a particular course in college. Studied so hard yet there's no use to it in your current job. But I haven't really experienced finding a job since I'm still in college. But I think it is probably better and an advantage for you if your job today has been tackled or studied in your college days. At least you have more knowledge about the job..

It would be a bonus to get a job based on what you studied in college. If you didn't, it wouldn't be the end of the world, nor will it 'waste' your college education. Your education will go to work in less obvious ways. You studied other things beside that one specific subject you set your goal on. It may be one of those other subjects that may poke up and decide to prove invaluable to you. The fact that it sits on your resume' will most likely increase your earning power.

well,it depends.to me,major means nothing. i don't like the major i studied in my college.i learned something i was interested in except my major.so when i graduated ,i found an ideal job not related to my major.how happy i am ! and some of my friends did the same way too, they are successful in their career. but if you like you major and want to develop your career on it,just continue,don't drop your major.

i have been working in the area of human resources for quite some time and based on my experience, lots of people nevr end up in jobs related to what they studied in college but they are fine with it. personally though, i feel that it is such a great pity. do you honestly want to bust four or five years of your brains out on a course that you won't end up practicing for the rest of your life? then again joining the workforce is never easy and sometimes you just have to be realistic and take the job that's there.
