Senior and dislike my MIS major?
It has just hit me that I have less than a year left before I'll be done with school. The past six months or so I've really gotten a taste of what my major entails and I hate it. In fact, I am so unenthusiastic about any possible career in the IT field that I didn't even try to get an internship and have no desire to go to career fairs or anything of the sort. Kids in my class just seem to know how to do so much stuff with computers that I have no clue of. All I know is what we are taught in class, I have no motivation to try to learn anything new because I simply don't care. I did pretty well in my sophomore level programming classes because it was new and I worked hard in it. Seems like there is so much computer stuff that the school doesn't even touch on, it really feels like a major where you have to go above and beyond just your course work. To sum it up, I feel wayyy behind in skill level compared to classmates and it really has to do with my apathy and disinterest rather than ability. I know IT is a super hot field, but no sense doing something you hate. What types of jobs can I get that aren't related to IT with an MIS major? Can I do stuff that other business majors have or am I screwed? People don't necessarily always work in the same field that their degree is, so I am wondering what options exist other than wasting time and money going back.
