Asked by Madeline on November 2, 2017

I am currently a management major at my university and debating changing to organizational leadership with a minor in management. I would like to work in the HR department of a company in the future. I have yet to pin a difference in the two majors. Will it matter what degree I hold in order to achieve a management position in a company? Thanks!

Cardinal Health, Tenneco, Emerson have responded.

I’m graduating in 2 weeks with a MS in Aerospace Engineering. My interests are with aerodynamics and advanced design, but there're limited listed openings in that area. I’ve applied to 12, sent a couple cold emails, and had one phone screen. If I don’t make progress, is it better to apply to more jobs outside of my direct interests, but that I qualify for, or get a part-time while I keep looking?

I have been a police officer for almost 6 years with two different departments, my first department was basically a foot in the door into the profession and "settled down" at my current department. With the recent birth of my son and the on-going politics of law enforcement, I am not as happy with this career as I once was. Not to mention, I can't bear the idea of something happening to me in the line of duty and not coming home to my wife and son. I have no college and did some IT work after high school, but it's been mostly random jobs and 6 years of law enforcement. If I were to leave for another field, what would my options be? I can't support my family on a low salary. Thank you for your time.

Gap Inc., Tenneco have responded.

I was just hired and was wondering if you have any advice on what I should expect on my first day? How should I prepare?

Worthington, ADM, Textron have responded.

Your first day is usually full of information. You'll learn a lot about the organization, the department in which you'll be working, and about your team. I would be sure to bring a notebook. You will likely…
