A lot of people erroneously believe that it matters what degree you have. People are choosing "bad degrees". This mantra was correct 20 years ago.

But things have changed.

There are many tens of thousands of people with very hard (and otherwise good) degrees graduating every year.

Law, finance, computer science, mathematics, hard science, engineering.

These people can't find jobs. Know why? Because there are 500,000 new graduates and only 10k new jobs.

Food for thought.

Re: Hundreds of thousands of Master's degree holders, PhDs on food stamps
sickening...i dont have shit and i'm not out chasing assistance.
 Quoting: DesinzitizedSleepWalker9978


I fully agree. I personally don't have much left over after bills are paid but I do not go running to the government begging. In fact I find it strange how many blacks can go sign up for food stamps and welfare checks yet can afford designer clothes, and hairdo's along with fancy finger nails with gemstones. Oh and the cars they ride around in make me sick. I still have a 20 year old car and can't afford anything new, yet they can afford a brand new car once a year. I mean WTF?

I think some think it is reparations for the slavery their ancestors went through here. So they think they are owed it and take what they can get.

Ummm...I have a biology degree and a MBA from very good universities and I still have no job after 6 months of very dilligent looking. If I wasn't living with my parents I would be screwed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25531744


The problem might be the address on your resume might be the same address as your parents. Never let a prospective employer know you are living with your parents as an adult. It can hurt your job chances.

Also these things help to find jobs after college. Might be too late for you.
*You should have joined a Fraternity. A Frat brother will always hire a fellow brother, even if they werent even close to being in school the same year.
* You should have interned during grad school. My first corporate job was as an intern at an investment banking firm, while getting my MBA. My second corporate job was for the same company, for 70 grand a year, after I got my MBA.
*Join a big church. The one where most of the successful people go. Church is a great business networking tool. And a fellow church member will hire someone from his church, before some stranger.
* For god sake. Move out of your parents house! Find a way. Hell, my 19 year old son only works part time at walmart, and fixes computers, xboxes and iphones in his spare time, and he can afford his own condo with a room mate.

There are plenty of jobs out there for the educated. You just have to have a good personal business network to find those jobs. "Its all who you know"<<< true words about the job market. If you dont know anyone...get out there and meet them!

You also have to have some kind of intelligence and common sense plus a go getter attitude. Not many people are like this. Smart people like you sometimes have a hard time grasping that you are a minority and that the majority of people will not be able to think like you. They just don't get it because their intelligence level is very low. And they are lazy.

I have a PHD - and unemployed. I qualify for food stamps - but don't take them.

Instead, grew a garden. Learned to can. Learned to stretch the $$, stopped eating JUNK. I eat better now than I did when I had a JOB.

NO foodstamps.

You do need a degree and training for some types of careers. Teachers and those in the medical community come to mind first.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
