I am currently majoring in Economics and Communication, I choose these majors because of my interesting in communications and economics because I believe I will be at an advantage when it comes time to find a job. My ultimate goal to get an MBA so I believe economics is a great background to have. My oldest sibling was an economics major with a mathematics minor from the UIC and got a job with JP Morgan Chase. She became one of my main motivations to become an econ major because I believe I could follow in her foot step. I learned from my sister the importance of having a good GPA and good work experiences. The reason behind having a great GPA is to be given the opportunity to even be considered for a position. Without that great GPA it becomes hard for one to be given an opportunity to prove themselves.
So far my GPA is not as great as it needs to be, that is one thing hindering me from applying for jobs because I believe the employee is going to have a lot of strong competitors. I believe without a doubt I would be a great candidate for any position because of my experiences, without a good GPA though, I am unable to prove myself. My last 2 semesters on campus have been geared towards getting excellent grades so I can be able to bring my GPA to where it needs to be. My biggest fear is graduating college and being ideal, that would be a very devastating situation. I also come from a family for people who graduate college with job offers so I cannot let my parents down and go back home idea, they have greater expectations for me. I believe it is my responsibility to make sure I have the GPA required regardless of what situation might be taking place in my life. I have failed at making that happen but luckily I have 2 more semesters to do better.
