    this is impossible to answer. It depends on the employer, the subject, the grades you got etc. With some subjects, you need to complete certain work to get an accepted qualification (eg with accounting and finance you can gain certain exemptions from ACCA exams, with psychology you can be BPS registered, with law you need certain bits to be able to practise law), so sometimes with a minor you wouldn't be eligible for any of that.

    Thank you for your answer. Is it important to continue the minor degree after the first year to seem attractive to an employer?

    What are your major and minor courses? What career are you planning on doing?
    Does your university allow you to drop the minor anyway?
