I don't recall the numbers but I believe the percentage is small of college grads that actually work in their field of study. And a good number of people will change careers (not jobs) 5-10 times over their lifetime.
I indirectly use my field of study in my current job but it didn't help me land the job. It was experience from previous jobs that opened the door. I'm not saying to avoid college. I'm just suggesting that practical experience may help you decide what studies you'd like to pursue.
That's pretty useful, but that's what I've been doing for the past seven years, and I'm not much closer to figuring it out as I was right after I graduated high school.
