Will I be considered for entry-level jobs that do not exactly go with my major?
Answered by Jamie, Hiring Expert at Worthington Industries, on Monday, March 7, 2016
Typically,  if you meet the job requirements from the job posting then yes you'd be considered regardless of you degree. Usually "entry-level" means the you will be trained on the skills you need for the position. Good luck!

This would depend on the type of role the position is. Typically in the job description they will highlight the degree/majors they are targeting. If there isn't a mention of degree focus. this would mean they are open to any major and able to train heavily on the specific job duties required. 
Good luck in your search!

Hello,
This will depend on the role and requirements that are required.  If there's not a specific degree called out, it's truly a entry level position companies are willing to train the skills you will need.  Entry level with specific degree's called out, such as engineering, you will need that degree.
Good luck!

Great Question! For entry-level jobs, companies are mainly looking for individuals that generally meet that particular job description/ requirements. In the other words, companies are looking for those individuals who can do the job and do it well regardless of one’s specific major. On average, an individual hired for an entry-level position, will be brought in, trained, and modeled for that particular opportunity.
However, in some cases it could depend on what the position is or if any specific major is requested. For example, if Mutual of Omaha is hiring an individual for our IT department mostly we are looking for someone with an IT major with some IT experience.
