College should be more for the intellectual class and other schools should be for skills training along with work experience .
Now a business wont even employ a person unless they have two years experience in that field ( as coffee barista ) i mean really . who is setting the standards for unemployment here .
Its the employers !!!
Dont blame those trying to get those rediculous "skills" they demand now

I took a few college courses, then decided to become a Pharmacy Technician. Trained for 6 months in that trade,got my pharmacy technician certificate. I then worked in that field for 6 years before moving into the software industry getting a job where I was supporting Pharmacy software. Now I work from home supporting pharmacy software making 81K per year. I've been working in software support for 14 years. Love it.

Get a degree in anything and you'll have to compete with 50+ people for the same job.

Once you discover that you aren't going to find salary jobs, you'll find that you're over-qualified for everything else. No manager in his right mind is going to hire a potential replacement.

F***** up, isn't it?

Nope, makes perfect sense to me.

Sheep think that they are automatically entitled to a good job because the school told them they were.

Everything we learned in school and took College degree it's BULLSHIT, everything the business and company ALMOST everything are under BIG GOVT.

If i were CEO of the Business, why do i still have to Pay taxes,debts, insurance and others. Once i have money left i will has to split giving money to Employee who work for me, and all i have left for myself of course pay the BILLS. HELLO SAME CYCLE OVER AND OVER AND OVER. ITS BULLSHIT!!!!!!!

Going to school doesn't guarantee a job...learning to do something that someone is willing to pay you for does...
 Quoting: BRIEF


Brief speaks the truth ...

My daughter has a Bachelors in BIO Research and a Masters in BIO Engineering and had 4 job offers before she graduated

My son has dual degrees also Mechanical and Industrial Engineering ... he to had numerous job offers before he graduated.

If you go into the heavy science/engineering areas you will get a job ... provided you have the grades ...

The down side, if you want to call it that is ... they busted their asses to get where they are today.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1361203


And to get where they are a person had better be strong in math. The people I know that were strong in the sciences were like that as children. It is something I believe a person has a talent in and just needs some education to get them started. It is not something a person can just become. You are a 'math' geek or you aren't. Same for artists, people in sports, acting etc. Find your strong points and build upon them.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


I agree on the math ... both of my kids have minors in math (they each needed 1 or 3 additional credits). Even though they pick up the concepts easily, they still had to bust their butts to apply the theory to graduate.

and i can tell you the ONLY people I know who are still doing well,


1. people who work in government, they still have money. I regret not going to work for the government instead of trying to be self employed.

2. And, people doing banking shit, high high level bankign shit, not bank tellers or branch managers or whatever,


the rest of the country is fucking fucked.

And, i live in one of the largest cities in the country not in fuckin mayberry.

Maybe things are different in Mayberry i wouldnt know.

I reject your notion that a business degree is useless. I graduated ~6 months ago into a job paying 45k a year, and my wife graduated 1.5 half ago with a similar job. Both of us had business degrees.

Here's a trick from a private education that i paid for waiting tables...use it...abuse it!

Every one of us, be it the guy with the Ferrari or the Drug Addict huffing crack in the inner city before arrest, has a certain amount of disposal income or you'd be dead. Now YOU in the shit take a small portion of that disposable income...let's say 5 $'s - and go out in the cruel week ahead and turn it 25$'s legal. Try it!!! It is amazing!!!
