Choosing the right major in university or college can be a daunting task, but this infographic is here to help you plan properly so you can eventually land your dream job, whether it be working as a junior graphic designer or in a social media job.

Surprisingly, students who major in education have the lowest unemployment rate with only 5.4% unable to find jobs right after graduation.
