@HOBYandy:

The washington post said :
``Researchers found that graduation rates vary by race, with 91.8 percent of Asian students, 82 percent of whites, 65.9 percent of Hispanics and 63.5 percent of blacks graduating on time.``

...and the lowest unemployment are mostly STEM, from what I can see, with some business and education as well.

@Shelworth: From a WSJ report of census data. Clinical psychology is the top for unemployment followed by miscellaneous arts and history.

It would be interesting to see the employment stats for each individual major. How many Geologists get jobs etc.

Wow, it`s really depressing how many college grads there are here without a career.

@Draculya: It`s not just fine art, but that isn`t exactly a field brimming with jobs either. If you want a decent job go into STEM, but I`ve even seen some of those have problems finding work.

Musical chairs: The Infographic.

You begin with ten players. The music stops and three are attacked by ninjas. Four make it to seats, but three are mysterously lost in the melee.

Of the four remaining players, two are pursued by velociraptors (using 25th century cloaking technology) one is struck by lightning in a infintessimally localized thunderstorm, and the third suffers a mental break, growing their hair out and wearing underwear over their clothes.

Kinda agree, whilst the college and uni sorts are doing their courses, the others if lucky get a job, and get experience, experience mostly in jobs now trump levels

"This implies that the only people working in their chosen field also graduated college."
No, it doesn`t. It doesn`t say anything about the drop outs.

"Bill Gates did not graduate college. I`m pretty sure "Be richest person on the planet" counts as his "chosen career"."
Bill Gates took a leave from college because he had the chance to start his own company. He only dropped out because his company was successful and there was no reason for him to go back and finish his course. He`s not a normal college dropout, he took what college had to offer and made a successful business out of it

I graduated college, but I`d be just as successful in my chosen career if I would have dropped out of high school.
