Well, technically I may be one, but I'm not as narrow-minded as one. I've experienced real work and some hard ships. I'm going to have to be around a lot of ignorant shits. Not saying all of them will be, but there will be a lot I'm sure.
>>61012805 >They are just trying to hold you down for their own comfort This. Especially the people who love you. The best advice you can find is usually from strangers who are indifferent towards you.
>>61014605 Congratulations on failing to even read the first line of what I posted. Some people are never going to be Doctors or Dentists so why the fuck waste thousands of dollars a semester on some pointless degree that gets you a job that doesn't even pay well anyway.
>>61011038 You don't need school if you're in "IT" at least, just need certs, and most of the bigger "well known" certs have so much free training online that you really don't have to pay for anything beside the exam. (Microsoft/RHEL/Cisco/Juniper/etc.) Don't bother with the CompTIA unless you want to do Govt. work, for some reason they want the useless Security+
Making ~80K simply because I can study on my own, pass an exam, and can think through a problem. Not above average intelligence, and didn't have any real advantage above anyone else. No school besides High School Diploma.
I am pretty happy in my job. I shall of course move on and make some kind of progression. I might even go to uni if my plans require it.
Good thing I grew out of the idea of being an actor/director etc. The thing is that people doing apprenticeships are earning more than those with degrees, and they are more certain of following the same career as their course.
>>61012805 >Look up the degree/profession you want, consider the average salary, top 10% salary, and mid career salary
This is excellent advice. I paid a lot for school but it's paying off now that I'm making a six figure salary right out of grad as an engineer. Then I have friends who did completely useless majors and are now swarmed with debt; they would have been much better off going to trade school or a community college.

All dat pride. Ironically my father who is a princeton drop out (dropped out and became a jehovah witness) ended up moving to applachia and couldnt find a job and becane a mailman too.
>>61017026 Damn, didn't know that mailmen made that much. With a CCNA and MCSE (they brought it back after the MCITP again right?) the market is pretty soft, not too hard to find a job right now in IT, at least in my area (central PA).

>>61015777 Best and easiest/fastest/cheapest ways into IT?
>>61017922 You need to figure out what you like, programming, networking, servers, etc. Then just youtube up, hit the exam, and drop the resumes.
First 6mo-year will be entry position obviously. Learn everything that you can and take all of the different kinds of work that you can get your hands on to show that what you lack in XP you have in potential; it's really worth more to have potential sometimes since IT is constantly changing.

I searched it in google and I am only questions and courses.
>>61022005 If you want to work with servers, just getting some PHP under your belt shows that you're interested in the job.
>>61011038 Ultimately, a university degree is an investment in your future salary. If you were to design a bunch of Java applications and learn C++ scripting you'll get a job, but you're at a big disadvantage if you want to get a 6 digit salary when you retire.
>>61019685 How the fuck does school have to do with anything you fucker
There's 18 year old kids doing what you do on a laptop with fruity loops getting paid by Eminem to make them nigga beets. I think the moral of your story is "install some music production software and make 4/4 beats for money"
Tfw when getting an associate of arts from fucking community college, but barely draw anymore due to depression and should probably change major for something reasonable but lack of motivation and depression makes it difficult. I don't even have any interests anymore and want to die everyday, but I'm too pathetic to kill myself.
>>61025571 No school or college. You'll want to check here for your testing center - http://home.pearsonvue.com/test-taker.aspx . That's not just Cisco, tons of cert programs use PearsonVue.
I think it's about 150$ now? Someone that may have taken it more recently could confirm, or just run through the site and it will tell you before checkout.
If you can get a CBT nuggets or INE subscription it would be the easiest. Definitely doable without though. -search youtube for free training -search the Cisco site for the exam blueprint (list of topics) -know subnetting by the back of your hand -acquire PacketTracer for labs -OR PREFERABLY -Install GNS3 and acquire an IOS image to setup labs (Packet Tracer is not technically free but you can find it. It's a SIMULATOR, so it doesn't exactly work like real equipment. GNS3 is an EMULATOR, it runs real router code, and aside from any software bugs, it's the real deal. It's pretty easy to setup now, was a bit more complicated a few years back)

>>61027349 Can't get antidepressants ? Start exercising. Gives you free dopamine. Won't guarantee you get out of the rut, but helps.
Alternatively, disappear for a month and catch a bus to nowhere. Possibly stress of being an artist (been there done that, was a musician now a programmer) is killing you and you can't fix it by staying in that mindset. Dissapearing would change your mind set.
>>61028946 Don't trust me on anything I say I'm just free thinking... If your funds and GPA are high enough to consider an post-grad study on the Middle East; It's a humongous field that probably would appreciate more researchers.
I would imagine knowing Arabic would almost be essential to doing a thesis on it and then you would probably get a higher chance of promotion in working in an international affairs position.
>>61030688 Interesting. I'm pretty poor but I have a decent GPA(3.7). I'm interested in learning Farsi. Do you think it'd be worthwhile or would Arabic be the better choice? Ideally knowing both would be the most beneficial I think; but I'm not sure how long that would take me.
shame this meme ever got propagated or believed at all. Like a law, accounting, comp sci, business or engineering degree could ever be useless. Who the fuck do you think works in all of these offices? Random plebs fresh out of high school with """"connections""""? Dont be retarded. The more you learn, the more you earn.

HOWEVER, it was risky AND VERY HARD (cried a lot).
But the thing that nobody sees is that going to school is actually the EASY WAY.
Having a business is very hard, but VERY VERY REWARDING. It teaches you A LOT about yourself ( I didnt know I was a crybaby).
YOU HAVE TO GO ALL IN ANON, DONT START A BUSINESS AND GIVE IT A WEAK SHOT!! POUR YOUR FUCKING SOUL ANON. Y O U R S O U L.
Seriously, I think everybody should give it a try :)
>>61011038 Of course social retards on 4chan will tell you that. You're not going to get a job solely with a degree, you also need to network. You can network without a degree and get a decent job, but networking with a degree is more likely to get you a much better job, sooner.
Even arts degrees can be pretty useful if you're not socially awkward and have a network of people who can help you.
>>61032606 you can make a lot on money in any country >>61032706 EVERYTHING. The only thing that contributed to my business that I didnt learnn on the internet was accounting. I took a single accounting class at college at it was more than enough. But obviously you can learn accouting on the internet.
when I started I didnt even know how to use a saw to cut the wood. Now I am basically an expert. My competitors buy overpriced shit from the US and hire overpriced US people to make the machines work. I dont do that, I research and do it all by myself, and get better results.
>>61033153 >Networking Here you have to be son of someone important or friend of some self entitled cunt to get something, if not you are fucked or maybe you have to be Mr social psicopat and suck dicks
I think you meant to say, "I didn't try hard enough." I didn't go to college and I am now the vice president of a software company that I didn't have a hand in founding with no connections in the industry. You just fucked up mate.

It's a counter reaction to the student debt crisis, which seems like a ploy to create educated slaves (because marijuana convicts generally can't be used to make your websites or balance your books).
In the recent state of the union address, Obama said that education should become affordable for everyone. This has a perfect parallel to when Bush said the same thing about property, in either case these political parties have identified something they feel all Americans should have and have attempted to create systems that benefit investors whilst still providing for consumers.
Unfortunately, this still has all the trademarks of any debt crisis and this is especially evident with rising youth unemployment, just as failing house prices caused the 08 recession. The interesting is that when everything defaults, how do you take someone's education away in any way similar to taking their property? You can't, so I only assume the end result would be debt slavery and forcing graduates to not declare bankruptcy.
Not saying it's not a good idea to get an education, just be careful about what career it's preparing you for. If it's not something that can feasibly pay back the loan...

If the economy keeps going I have shit lined out with back up professions and retirement caters for extra cash. Not going to need any school for any of them except pilots license. I'm set bud. Computers have all the jobs man. Learn to computer for the big bucks. Also languages. Learn the basics for German Russian Spanish French and then Arabic Hebrew and so on. It's really not hard people do it all the time. It just takes dedication and sacrifice. 23 right now. Making 52k a year no degree. Only gets better from here.

Honestly, should I just drop out of my Uni and get a 2 yr degree instead of getting a liberal arts degree?
>>61045993 I manage an electrical contracting company. Basically you just work through tradeschool and get your journeyman's/master's electrician license. If you choose to work for some company, you can make ~80k a year as a foreman. Or you can start your own contracting company and make well over that working for yourself with more personal freedom.
Depending on the area you can make 6 figures easily.
Pro-tip: GET INTO SELLING/INSTALLING SOLAR PANEL SYSTEMS AS SOON AS YOU CAN. People pay ridiculous amounts of money for it.
>>61027818 im pretty young being 19 and havent had much guidance on where to go. i enjoy programming, have c#, c, and some c++ under my belt. first year uni but second year went to a jc. would a cert + associates be worth investing for myself rather than finishing out college. also what kind of cert and tutorials should i be looking for, thanks
>>61047469 I just cant compete with rich chinks at my uni for any other field senpai >>61047618 I was thinking the same. I really dont need a 6 figure job. I'm extremely frugal and managed to live comfortably in an apartment with a roommate while both of us just worked at Walmart. Obviously that's not ideal in the long term though. If I could get a job as a mail/garbageman I'd be fine
I do think a trade school would be more up my alley. But would it be worth dropping out of one of the best unis in the state (for free kind you)even if I cant get a useful degree? That's what I've been mulling over
>>61047993 See if you can get into the engineering or computer science programs at your current university. It's never too late to switch. I switched to electrical engineering after my junior year of college, finishing EE and Math in 6 years. Now I have a pretty easy "consulting analyst" job where I just sit on my computer doing nothing half of the time, so I started managing a local electrical company while I'm at it.
I have tons of family members that didn't go to college, but went to trade school for plumbing/electrical work/HVAC instead. They all make well over $50k minimum, some make over $100k a year. There are occasional overtimes where they work saturday or sunday and get paid double their hourly wage so there's a lot of room for money if you're willing to work for it.

Success is derivative of two things: intelligence and drive. You can have one or the other, but you won't get far unless you have both. That's why some people drop out of high school to become millionaires and other complete their doctorates to bag groceries.

>>61048558 >same here...should I go back? Or at 25 is too late?
no, you go as a mature student (over the age of 21 usually) - you'll discover some universities have almost 50% mature students on their courses because mature students are less likely to dick around like entitled school leavers. I did computer engineering and we had a bunch of people in their 40s and 50s from Pfizer, Microsoft and a bunch of other places.
For college (i.e. A-level, BTEC level 3 (never do less than lvl 3 if you want to get to uni after)?
no, there are many colleges where you'll get people of any age just like at university attending. When I was 17, I had 25 year olds on my college course (a BTEC).
Colleges also offer GCSEs if you need these to do A-levels, though that will put you another year back if you do a quick course or two if you do the normal time.
>>61048315 Honestly I dont think I'll have any way of getting into engineering or comp sci here. I'm retaking basic shit at the community college I mentioned over the summer because I took 2 years off and now have a lot of holes. Even at my best though, I dont think I can get into those

And I don't mean it like "would you like it?"; no: do you really plan on putting all your energies, all your effort, all your mind and body in a topic, studying it, gutting and ripping it to its core to understand and discern what makes it so unique and valuable for you, your career, tour future?

>>61049042 >>61049050 Thanks guys, I'll save some money and in a couple of years I'll give it a try (I was thinking to move to Glasgow and start Uni over there: any Scot who can give me some infos? I'm not an Anglo)
>>61049395 In kitchens >>61049472 >do you want it? Nope. That's why I'm not there. Several times I was told by my mother "you get out what you put in." I thought it over and realized, despite having a wide array of interests, I didn't care about school enough to make it worthwhile. I might like welding though and the course is only 5 weeks. Plus, I'm in the same place as the most important shipyard in North America and one of my neighbors hires welders, so it seems like the right way to go at the moment
>>61049687 Aren't Scots eligible for student loans with the SLC or do you have a different system to us English? Have you already been to university and dropped out?
Just a heads up about student loans with SLC - if you were to go on a typical 3 year course, you get 4 years of student loans available.
If you drop out during, say, year 2, that means you have used two years of student loans available to you (even if you left after just one week of attending the course, though I'm sure there is an appeals process for this or something).
So you've used two years, out of a total of four years worth, while you were on a three year course, effectively giving you two years left of remaining loans.
That means if you apply to do another three year course, two of those three years will be covered still by student loans, but you'll have to fund the first year yourself.
It's kind of a second chance system, so long as you don't fuck up your first university opportunity too hard (i.e. grin and bear it but drop out at the very last moment).

>>61052381 >>61052453 Truth, it should also be a decision you alone make - parents are often a terrible influence on their children as can be tutors.
>>61051932 Well, you should get that degree regardless of honours or not. I don't want to be a downer, but if a nuclear engineer/physicist leaves without honours, chances are they aren't ever going to be working on a reactor.
But, having a basic degree will show you had some discipline and motivation to see it through to the end, knowing the odds were shitty and that may help in various job applications.
It will also be a great learning experience for you to look back on in the future ;)
>I don't feel ready for college >I'll take a couple years off
And just about the time I was ready to go back both of my parents were forced into early retirement due to serious medical issues and I had to remain employed full time just as a matter of survival.
Now in 2016 it's 10 years later and I know I'm never going back to school. So this is my life now I guess. It's not terrible but I will always wonder what my life would be like if I would have gotten a degree.
>>61053350 Yes, well said about the parents, My Colonizer Friend.

>>61053837 That welder is not going to start at 50K. I'm not discouraging anyone from learning a trade, but that welder will be working for years below 30K before he gets a union job. If he gets a union job.
As an aside, anyone thinking about trade school should consider learning that trade in the military if possible, preferably as a Guardsmen or reservist unless you want to be a full-time soldier. You'll get paid to go to school instead of the other way around.
>>61011038 I didnt fall for it, got a comfy union autoworker gig right out of high school. Was making $31/hr by the time i was 21, been here 10yrs now. I plan on taking tge supervisor classes in 2yrs and maybe be a foreman and make even more money.
>>61011038 Look, unless you are majoring in a very in-demand field, such as medicine, or have nepotistic connections for your common degree, university really is a waste of time and money. Take it from me, I attended university, graduated with my business degree with honors, but still was unable to find employment at my particular field for well over two years. I attended CC to become a technician, and already I was getting offers before I even graduated.
It's hell out there for the majority of college graduates who aren't part of a wealthy family with connections or majoring in STEM. I wish I could tell my former self 6 years ago to stop and either major in something more lucrative, such as nursing, or just go to CC to at least earn a proper living.
My friends who majored in Liberal Arts or other business degrees agree with me completely on the scam that university promises graduates a higher pay and employment prospects. One majored in film, only to become a carpenter later on. He regrets being 20k in debt and wasting almost half a decade in his life for a industry completely saturated with his kind, and didn't need him.
>>61054926 Not true for al countries. You're fucked in France with no diploma, you 'll never get any advancement if you're not from on of the school reserved for the ultra rich. A no diploma cv goes in the trash before any human see it.
The State of Texas will hire literally anyone with a clean criminal record more than $30,000/yr with the full gamut of benefits and more paid time off than you can actually use, and the job doesn't really require anything more than filling out a bit of daily paperwork and yelling at niggers.
Training is a complete joke and only takes a few weeks. There are dorms at the training academies and at many of the units, and there are also $4000 bonuses for anyone willing to sign a contract to work at an understaffed facility for a year.
The job kind of sucks and the pay could be better but it's one of the only jobs out there where it's a guaranteed hire, you get paid a living wage, and being racist at work is not only not going to get you fired, but is expected.
