I chose Computer Science as my major because I thought it would have lots of jobs. Do you think that's bad?

Im graduating soon. In my classes I've always felt bored and half asleep.

Very little of the material I learned in my CS classes prepared me for a job in the real world.

If you want to make a good impression on an interviewer, show that you know how to apply the theories you learned to real world problems. Because at the end of the day, that's really what you're going to be paid for - writing code to solve some sort of problem.

If you then had a shaky GPA it's bad, employers will look for good grades

You could work in IT for a company, setting up computers/phones/printers in offices and troubleshooting over the phone. Some people like the work, others do not.

You don't have to be a coder with a comp science degree...you could work in other aspects of IT. I mean, the coding is arguably the biggest part, but you could do network admin or something like that...

i can't believe you're graduating if you've slept and not paid attention in class.

maybe join the military if you want excitement. join a combat or infantry role. with your degree, you could apply as an officer. or just enlist and start out as an E-4. they do have jobs in IT and computer science as well too.

Do we think it's "bad"? Bad how? Yeah, if the class is boring and you're not paying attention, it was a poor choice of major.

I know a lot of people who are studying computer science, im sure they have good reasons for choosing to study that field. But, if it's something you dont like doing, your gonna hate working and that's not good. Pick something you enjoy.

What university is letting you graduate if you were inattentive in your classes?

Sorry, but as someone who works in the field, you're doomed. There aren't many jobs unless you're willing to relocate to India and make the standard wage there.

You'll probably make more money than you would had you chosen to be an art major. It's possible you'll have a more comfortable life while working a job you hate.
