TAIPEI, July 19 -- Over half of the respondents to a survey in Taiwan said that they regretted their college major choice, a survey by yes123, a leading online recruitment site in Taiwan, showed.

According to the random sampling survey released Tuesday, conducted among 1,337 full-time white collar workers, 51.8 percent said that in hindsight they had chosen the wrong major. Nearly 30 percent said they realized their mistake when they began to look for work.

About 59.7 percent of the respondents indicated that they would choose differently if they could make the decision again, the poll showed.

Over 60 percent of the respondents said that their job did not relate to their chosen major, the study found.

Yang Tsung-bin, yes123 spokesperson, said that work experience and potential are the major factors that influence career paths.
