I doubt the current employment rate is going to be of much use considering you have years of schooling ahead of you and a lot can change during that time.

However, I recommend YOU do some research and look at the job outlook for certain industries/careers. EBSCO is an online research database that should be available through your school's library. It is the premier research tool - IMO - for everything business-related. Look and see if certain careers are expected to grow over the next decade.

Also, there is a big difference between marketing, economics and IS. If you truly have an interest and passion for all of the listed fields, that's great. However, I have never met such a person. Therefore, you also need to take into account what you are interested in - what you enjoy - what you see yourself doing well into the future.

And lastly, don't pursue something because you think you can make a lot of money. Trust me, a high-paying gig that makes you want to shoot yourself every day you walk into the building is not a good thing!

Well I was a marketing major. It's really fun and it allows me to be creative. You can make good money in accounting and finance, but I dont have any interest in those areas. So pursue what you like and go from there
