Please stop expecting the staff at the career services office to "make" your child pick a major from which s/he will "get" a "good job." College isn't about making money. It is about helping your child find authentic interests, explore life-sustaining passions, learning how to problem-solve, embrace the unfamiliar, honor the expanse of human experience, negotiate conflict and disappointment, build resiliency, advocate for self. Relax Mom and Dad: s/he'll find a job..and it may not be what you dreamed for them, but their college is not for you. It is not something you can architect. It is uniquely theirs to use to launch a life THEY will live.
Sincerely, The Career Counselor (not the 'placement person')
