    Change Job, Major

    If a guy has a different job or a college student has a different major, should "job" and "major" be used in singular form and without the article "a", like these:

    "He changed job."
    "He changed major."

    or should "job" and "major" be in plural form, like these:

    "He changed jobs."
    "He changed majors."
    ?

    Either plural or with a possessive.

    He changed his job. He changed jobs.
    He changed his major. He changed majors.
