HRM to Pharmacist
April 27, 2013 10:47am CST
When I am in college I toke up Hotel and restaurant Management for two years and I stopped because I got preggy. It's been 2 years since I stopped and I am thinking to go back to school if my aunt agree that she will take care of my son. I want to shift my course into a Pharmacist, and my mama agree with it. Any suggestion what course is in demand or I will surely have a stable job?

Well these days it doesn't matter what you major in because more then like what you get a degree in you will not be working at. Jobs can be easy and hard to find depending on where you live. You can fight for a spot but you might not get it or you can take someone else job and they will pay you to go back to school to learn more about that type of job, one degree can open a door to many degrees. Just pick what you feel will fit you and your personality.

If there is one thing that I would like to share with you when it comes to choosing a career. Choose something that is related your passion because if you really love what you do there will be no hindrance to your success. Don't just choose a career that is in demand because chances are, you are not sure when is the time that the demand will depreciates. Trust me, I took up Nursing because I thought money is easy, but I was wrong to be a Nurse requires one to invest more money yet there was less jobs. Choose a job you love.

You know, I went back to school recently and I ended up choosing business management as a major, with marketing as my focus. I had owned my own business and then when the economy went south I was kind of lost and struggling. It is kind of funny that now I have what pretty much amounts to a dream job and I've got some good things happening to my income from a blog platform I joined. But when I went back to school I was so stressed about EVERYTHING. I don't have kids, but I definitely know what it's like to totally reorganize your whole life just so you can go back to school and finish a degree in a reasonable amount of time. Then you have to think about getting hired somewhere. If you do go back to school I really, really, suggest that no matter what you pick for a major that you join at least one club or organization, make sure to sign up to volunteer for anything and everything you have time for. If you have financial aid, keep your grades up at least to a 3.5 and you will be approved for work study. I did all of the above, it took some time, but what ended up happening is I went to a club meeting. There was a guest speaker from the Americorps volunteers. When the talk was over I approached her and let her know that I wanted to get involved. Two weeks later I was employed, making ten buck an hour for working off campus with a community garden, being paid through work study, and I'm earning a FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR educational stipend that I can use at any school in the nation. I also qualified for a scholarship for my work with Americorps. Ask the student services desk at your new school if Americorps is affiliated with your school. They are a nationwide organization and they have relationships with colleges all over the country. IF you get involved with Americorps every employer you send your resume to will want to talk to you. I've even gotten some job leads from people I've met while volunteering with them. It is awesome. Good luck with school and no matter what degree field you decide on just stay focused on why you are there and you will do great!

That's great, I also stopped studying for a few months, because I needed some time to think. So after 4 1/2 years as an electrical engineering student, I have decided to shift to BS Accountancy since I really want to be more knowledgeable when it comes to money, business, etc. This is my second chance, and I really can't afford to waste it since I have disappointed my parents with what happened to me. Yeah pharmacy is a good course too, in fact even Hotel and Restaurant Management isn't bad at all, especially since you're a woman. Nevertheless, the best thing to do is to follow what your heart really wants, pursue a course that will get you a career that you'll really enjoy in the future and most of all, one that will be useful in achieving your goals. For my case, me and my brother plan to start a tithing company/business in the future, thus a degree in accountancy will surely be instrumental.

Well, as far as I know work related to business, teaching, medical and of course call center are all in demand. So if you think that you will will somehow excel on that field then go for it. Good luck and I hope you find success in whatever endeavor you might want to pursue.
