I have a lot of friends who were political science majors who aren’t employed right now. There are a few reasons why. I did not get my degree in political science yet I walked out of college with a job in the political science field. I am here to help any political science majors or any just interested in the field with some tips and tricks that I have learned from my own experience.
I went off to college wanting to double major in criminal justice and sports broadcasting. In fact, I thought my love for politics would come to a screeching halt upon entering college and having a better social life than the bubble I used to live in. I was wrong. I caught the political bug with a severe itch to argue. It was the fall of 2012, the beginning of debate season between President Obama and former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney. I was at the peak of sass that I had been holding in for far too long. I took to Twitter, as any rational girl would, and began expressing my views. I was seeing red while in classrooms where liberal teachers applauded the “brave sentiments” for my liberal peers and immediately discredited anything conservatives said. So I kept my mouth shut and decided to play ball with the best of them. I wrote papers to their leanings and I sat silently as the professors brainwashed the people around me. I knew I needed a better outlet than a social media platform so I found the College Republicans.
