Did it work?


No, it didn't affect me. But, if you are going to link to gay porn, at least put up a NSFW so that people don't actually lose their jobs.

Jobs, to losers, are important because it helps them buy food and pay bills because their mother's and father's don't support them any longer.

re: What's your college major?
I’m embarrassed to say CJ. I also have an MPA. It’s worked out well for me, but I won’t pay for my kids to get a social science degree. I’d rather them learn a trade or even go in the service if they’re not going to pursue a more cerebral degree - for lack of a better term.

Electrical Engineering. If I could go back I would've majored in education.

Deep down I knew I was doing EE for the money and job prospects. I also knew I loved tutoring math and would love to teach it. The idea of stopping full time work and going back to school is just daunting and unrealistic though. Also I have a mortgage now and the pay cut would really hurt.

I learned literally 0 of what I do in the real world, in college. 

I don't think I use a single thing of what I learned in college on the Finance and Management side. Honestly, I'd say the school really didn't prepare me that well (not like that their problem) and I used literally 0 of their resources to land where I am. And when I did go to them at first while in college they were not nearly as prepared for the side of the business I wanted to be in. 

The only thing I learned was time management and that was how to wake up for an 8 am class after boozing heavily the night before

Almost everything you said applies to my situation as well.

Hello, ole fellow Journo!

When I was young, dumb, and optimistic, I too majored in Journalism. Minors in PoliSci and East Asian Studies.

Became a bitter old man regarding the field when it was too late to not graduate with the degree. Did non-profit work in Hotlanta for a year. Then went back to school.

Began the DPT route. Didn’t learn until meeting specific PTs how undervalued and underpaid the field is, and the PhD is essentially a Ponzi scheme.

Took too many credits though. Now finishing up first year as a PTA.

I’m either going to have to go the PA route or the management route as you don’t truly know how fricked up your body might be until you’re learning to become a movement specialist.

re: What's your college major?
My college specialization is philosophy. The only negative thing when studying for this specialization is the constant writing of an essay with which I have always had problems. It was the best option to buy an essay so I got some help here until I improved my writing skills on various philosophical topics.

It is unfortunate that most businesses insist on using a college degree as the first step in evaluating prospective hires. I suspect most jobs in business or creative industries don't really need college graduates and can be learned on the job. All it does is make people waste money on college.

Jobs in engineering and science are different. Those jobs probably need people with some kind of formal, post high school education

Chemical engineer here.

I agree with this. Unless you have a specialized degree such as engineering or doctoring the degree really just tells a prospective employer that you are willing to put up with 4 years (or more) of bull shite to get what you want. It shows them you are driven to succeed.

Military experience should be considered comparable to a 4 year degree, if you ask me.

Soldiers also show they are able to deal with bull shite to get what they want.

If I had to go back and do it all over again I would go into horticulture. I'm having to learn that stuff on my own as it is now. Sure would have been nice to receive formal horticulture training. I learn by trial and error these days, which sucks.

Don't they do that now?
On job apps now they ask if you're a veteran.

Yep. I'm preaching to the choir here, I know.

It's more speaking to the differences in perception between those with a four year degree vs a military vet. You hear stories of military vets being literally spit on by people who would never condescend to spend even one day in uniform themselves. Because the military is home to our "political pawns who behave as beasts" or something to that effect (Henry Kissenger).

A soldier's job is tough. And they do it anyways.
