Back in 2007, I was pre-pharmacy. Then I job shadowed at several pharmacies, and was disillusioned by the long hours indoors, the monotony, and the overall setting. The spring of 2008 changed everything. I took an introductory course in environmental geology, did some research, and was amazed by the variety of opportunities. That spring, I changed my major, and have been on the geology track ever since. One site I used really changed my mind. It is the Bureau of Labor Statistics website; their occupational outlook handbook gives statistics on current employment and employment projections for many fields. For those who haven’t found a career path or are merely curious, I recommend it.
