I was offered a job that pays $62,000. I do not have a 4 year degree, but I was working towards it. This job is for a huge company. Would you take it? Is it worth it? I do have a AA. I think that it would make sense for me to take it, but I'm not sure.
Wow, you guys are dumb
OP, is your degree in the same field as the job? If they are recruiting people right out of college, dont you think there is a labor shortage in that field? Dont you think its in your interest to complete your education in that field, and then negotiate for a better salary when you have the leverage of your degree?
Dont forget, everyone on /biz/ is retarded. $62,000 annual isnt that much money. Especially not as a salary from a "huge company"
>Dont forget, everyone on /biz/ is retarded. $62,000 annual isnt that much money. Especially not as a salary from a "huge company"
>Does not have a degree
>Has seemingly no previous job near that salary
>Lol $60k/yr is nothing don't take it!
Why do trolls like you exist?
>everyone on /biz/ is retarded. $62,000 annual isnt that much money.
The opposite is actually true. everyone here claims to be an internet marketer making $200k/yr, or at the very least being a wageslave with $80k/yr starting.
I mean, that's the biggest thing. Getting your degree is very important, because even if it doesn't mean anything, it makes you desirable.
If they're willing to hire people without experience for $62K, (which can buy you a cheap house after your debts are settled (and it will pay for your degree in the mean time)) you should exploit that
Not OP. I 'made' $63k last year. After taxes and health insurance, my paychecks are $1,500.
Been there 2 years. No raises, no growth potential. I have 2 weeks until my yearly bonus ($3k), then I walk out.
I'm a digital marketer and have been applying to other jobs for a year now without any success. I'm planning on doing an apprenticeship in farming or construction instead. The stress, strain, and dissatisfaction isn't worth the money.
You are a fucking faggot. The purpose of an education is to get a job. It's for a huge company which would offer opportunity and training. The education can be finished on the side. Why the fuck not make money whilst gaining experience and an education. Fucking fight me neckbeard.
How far into your degree are you? If it's one year, at least round out an associate's. If you're three years in, finish at night, but get the job.
After you've been at a job for two years, you can just say you have a degree in your résumé. Or don't. People will just assume you do.

I'm a dropout, make over $100,000, and my résumé would look similar to the one above, but I have a ton of accolades and performance metrics from work that make me far more desirable than some cherry grad. And because I know the neckbeard spergs will chime in, no I wouldn't try to get a programming or surgeon position. STEM and professional careers aren't conducive to this approach.
but mate, I'm a dropout as well and I work as a consultant software engineer making ~130k/yr.(Before taxes which is -35%)
I had a dev job before I landed this though, so I had a minor amount of experience, but I aced the interview and knew what I was doing.
