    In school they always make it out like you`re going to graduate and instantly be doing awesome fun work you want to do, when in reality you gotta work your way up to that.

    I believe the world will eventually become too stupid and lazy to sustain itself within the 21 century. That combined with an energy crisis will have us all reverting back to horse drawn carriages and plowing our own land to grow our own food.

    Most college grads i know are working regular 9 to 5-ers that have absolutely nothing to do with what degrees they receieved. A friend of mine has quite a few degrees in different important sounding subjects. You know where he`s working? Geico. As a claims adjuster. BUT...he`s worked his way up the ladder anyway and now makes great money anyway. Most grads simply dont have the money to continue their education and really get up there in the world ans get those top-dollar jobs they went to school to get. Some do suceed though. Nursing is extremely popular where I live...you can go to school for as short as 9 months or as long as 4 years and get a nursing license, and nurses will be forever needed in the job market. May not pay a doctor`s salary, but it`s better than 7.00 an hour at walmart.

    This is why you go to grad school. I`m assuming you mean "college" is up to a Bachelor`s degree, which is pretty worthless.

    Also, consider something more valuable than English Literature or Philosophy. Sure, Business can also be a poor choice (especially at an undergrad level). Have you considered Engineering?

    Lol weell considering i work for shell oil as an engineers intern. I know exactly what they do. and to tell you that its the stereotypical "lets stare at a computer 8 hours a day and not move from my cubicle" would be an understatement.
    And another thing.

    a doctorate in engineering is basically useless. Its a very useless thing. Almost all of the engineers i know have told me that getting a doctorate in engineering isnt worth the paper its written on. ( haha stole that from someone elses comment, anyway) All im trying to say is that it isnt a big deal because that guy will be doing the exact same thing as the engineers with bachelors. sad to say.

    Yeah, you`re pretty much right on there. It`s hard to find the job you went to college for. On the other hand, they do exist. I happened to stumble across the one I have now, and wouldn`t trade it for anything. Keep looking, and good luck.
