I have a quick question that I hope someone can answer. Do I have to include my major on my resume? So instead of putting BS in Finance, Can i just list Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts?

The reason I ask is I want to go about getting jobs that are not necessarily in line with my major and I don’t know how I should go about doing it. If I want to change career fields completely or do something else.
So is it okay to do? Have others done this?

If you just have a 4 year degree and some work experience it shouldn't matter what your major was - all they care about is that you did the work/completed a degree. So, I'd include the major because that's the norm.
