I'm going for a double degree in Business and Sociology and plan on going into Human Resources. Heard/read that it's a pretty stress free job and it pays decent. So with my salary and doing side businesses part time, I should be pretty well off. Making 100k after taxes is one of my life goals.
$150,000 to obtain a degree!! Thank god I live in Scotland, haven't spent a single penny on my degree.
On another note, can't 100% agree with the guy who wrote the article. At least here in Britain I know plenty of people (my mum included) that are making ridiculous amounts of money after doing so called 'worthless degrees'. But then again, could be a completely different ballgame in America.
I think the real issue is that most people have too high expectations. If you want to do a 'worthless degree', go ahead, if it's what you enjoy. Just know the risks, money involved, benefits involved, and know that you are not guaranteed a good job at the end of it all. This article tries to make it out to be the worst possible thing ever, which I would say is a slight exaggeration.
author nailed it. only thing he didnt mention was get gasoline and burn the damn thing and video tape it on youtube
young and dumb ppl are young and dumb ppl
it isnt the 60s anymore where getting a degree guarantees a job
be realistic. having a passion isnt enough as it has to something that can generate money so maybe consider getting a trade
live below means
I don't have a degree, I'm going into Real Estate, but from observing friends and family:
Where you went to school, your major and your connections (not always helpful) are going to determine your job outlook
All the pharmacy (science majors), accounting, and engineering majors are making money. 50k+ 1-2 years after working.
Everyone who didn't major in one of the above majors are making shit money (15$ an hour) or working at a job that didn't even require a degree in the first place. I don't know anyone who is in the hole 6 figures (except for the pharmacy grads, but they make it back quick) but there definitely people out there that are.
Power line man make 60-70k with about 2-3 years experience and that's a 2 year trade. I know of a nurse that started at 70k with an associates. There's also realtors making 6 figures 2 years into the business (hopefully I'll be one of them)
Overall, I think college is worth it (with the right school and major) but there's definitely alternatives to making money and being happy.
I'm a junior and HS, decent grades, having a good time socially.
Tons of my friends plan on rushing and doing Greek life in college. I want a business degree but I could just start a business without one. Should I go for the social experience if I have a part scholarship? (In GA over 3.5 gpa will pay for your college basically)
"The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire"
Just wished I new earlier how to do career in them and had switched to the oil business.
Anyway now at 32 and with a mechanical background I've just landed an offshore rotation job as a Field Engineer. After the training period a life of good money and 6 months to do whatever i want with starts.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
