Did your education prepare you for your career or occupation?
Yes, not only did it teach me skills related to my degree, bit it really prepared me to act professionally and be independent.
Has your education or career/occupation trajectory ever changed? How?
I enrolled as a psychology major thinking that was the only thing I could maybe do. The classes were so easy and I was getting nearly 100's on the exams, so I changed my major to Accounting and graduated in 3 years with a high GPA.
