Atlanta Staffing Agency, TRC Staffing Services, Inc., Questions How Important Your College Major Is

College students experience considerable pressure to select a major that has the highest earning potential, whether or not they are drawn to that subject. TRC Staffing Services, Inc. explores how much a major affects your job opportunities.

    NORCROSS, GA, February 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- College is full of major decisions that may have significant impact on your life after school, but how important is the decision about your major? While many students are struggling to find sustainable employment after graduation, increasing emphasis has been placed on selecting the "right" major, or one that holds the highest earning potential.

This pressure to earn a degree that will produce the best job opportunities has many students avoiding what they are naturally inclined to do, and instead, opting for a more practical major. Atlanta staffing agency, TRC Staffing Service, Inc., tells recent graduates not to worry that their major will prevent them from finding suitable employment.

A study conducted by the University of Texas has concluded that perceptions of varying economic success among graduates of different majors have been exaggerated. Their research suggested that each student's success was based more heavily on their individual ability and effort rather than undergraduate major, and their earnings did not vary significantly across fields of study. Another study by Payscale, Inc. confirmed this observation, with the report that history majors who pursued careers in business collected earnings on par with business majors themselves.

TRC Staffing Services, Inc., questions whether the major is as important as having the degree itself, along with a solid work ethic. "In our business, we typically see that aptitude and diligence ultimately determine employability," says Tom Bodeep, Senior Vice President of TRC Staffing Services, Inc. "Our staffing agencies around the Southeast have found that employers are looking for talented individuals, and not just particular college majors."

TRC Staffing Services, Inc. has an impressive record of its own. They are committed to matching talented individuals with high-quality employment opportunities. Their staffing professionals actually offer a guarantee on each candidate who they place within a company.

In addition to traditional staffing, TRC's Professional Solutions division provides services for a variety of employment fields, including IT staffing, finance staffing and engineering staffing.
