  1. It is a good feeling to see a potential career goal in the top ten. I would like to see more information on how their grading system works because I feel its highly opinionated.

  2. I think this is great to hear. Being a student in marketing, to see that two career paths are in the top ten. I think that this shows how important marketing has always been in business and it seems that it’s a field that will continue to grow, which is great news!

  3. As a marketing major it excites me to see that there are jobs in the field. I knew when picking my major I was hoping that would be the case. It seems like the field is only growing with two jobs falling under the top 10. It is also nice to see that their ratings for being a stressful job were not too low with both having a “C.”
