  •  Network.   Talk with anyone and everyone about your career/major choice, including instructors, counselors, friends, family and professionals working in your area of interest.
  •  Continue taking classes in your major and re-evaluate your choice as needed.

Life is like riding a bicycle.  to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
