What should I study next for getting a future job in America?
I'm a senior college student from Taiwan, right now I feel pretty confused about my future: I have a bachelor of Russian language, and I've attended Student Association at school for 3 years (as vice chairman for 1 year) , I want to get my master degree in America. Actually I'll immigrate to America legally soon, so I need to study something that helps my future career, the problem is, I have no idea what to study. My aunt who works for America military told me to study Computer Science, cuz she thinks I can get a good job with it. She also told me as a foreigner, what I'm interested in- international relationship, international journalism, marketing, and language, won't help me to get any good paying job. To her, only high-tech job will help Asian to make a living. Is that true? I've got answers from some nice friends that being a translator might not be a good choice. Can anyone give me some more idea what I can study for my possible future job instead of Chinese teacher? Thx
