Dear Experts, It's my senior year of college and I've finally realized what I want to do in life: be a teacher. The only problem is, I've been declared as a Mechanical Engineer since my freshman year. It's obviously way too late to change my major. What in the world do I do? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#366 Why not teach mech engineering? You could tutor students on afternoons/weekends, too. All is not lost. (@beneubanks) Q#366 Take ed course next semester. Research reqs for teaching; ME w/teaching certificate can teach science. (@juliaerickson) Q#366 Do some research and find out what you need to do to get into teacher's college. Then, make a plan to move forward. (@gradversity) Q#366 Need MS to teach, so, no big deal. BUT, don't throw out ME career yet. Do 5 info interviews in field 1st. (@jtodonnell) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
