That's the truth, unless you are actually talented and have connections for most liberal studies tier things.
Debt is manageable if you planned ahead and dreams are compromised when neccesary.

Sometimes (usually) what you love and what you're good at aren't worth spending thousands of dollars on.

The degree only affects your success if you attend a mid-shit tier university.

If you attend a top-tier institution like Cambridge you're set irrespective of the degree you take. Even if you took women's studies there you would land yourself with a comfortable government/think-tank job.

Just putting this out there if anyone is becoming dissuaded from studying their passion and could get into an elite university.

Look up the employment rate, it's worse than sociology in many places. Yes, architects are a vital part of the construction industry, but they're also a tiny, tiny part. A friend of mine went architecture, ended up being a draftsman. Most of his classmates weren't so lucky and ended up working a McJob or going back to school for retraining. Either way, he could have been a draftsman for much cheaper and much faster by studying EDDT - and be more qualified not to mentioned.

Most other professions take a hell of a lot more schooling to make big bucks. Engineers can start hitting gold at 22. However, engineering is also very overrated at the same time. It's saturated, and only the actually intelligent and crafty ones will really succeed, the rest will end up as glorified technologists. Hell, I'm an engineering technologist and I beat out actual engineers for my job, they didn't have the networking skills or the perfect GPAs so they were slinging it down low.

The difference is in the % of people in the profession who make it big, those who do alright, and those who do nothing but gruntwork for their entire careers.
>>
>>25948253
Yes but thats the fault of the people, not the degree. They're not doing gruntwork because thats the likelihod, they're doing it because they probably shouldnt have been doing law in the first place. Even without connections there are many paths a law grad can take that are equal or better to a good solicitor job.

And honestly, making the right connections is not as hard as those people doing gruntwork would make out. ITs their own fault they're there and they squandered a degree that could have had them doing so much more. Its the equivalent to a shitload of mechanical engineering students becoming janitors at high schools and saying their degree sucks.

Teachers college is massively oversubscribed in many areas. In my province less than 10% of them will ever teach in a classroom. Every shitty university has a teaching program but there's only so many jobs available each year.

Tumbling downhill. Pay is going down. Hospital work is going down. Have fun with your part-time job at a supermarket giving anti-depressants to housewives. It's being squeezed on all ends by other professions.

you don't really need a specific degree in a humanitarian degree to get a job in the humanities. So, why even bother with that degree?

You can achieve the same with a science degree. Your degree does not necessarily equal your job

Culinary is the most expensive diploma and what does it get you? The right to make $13 /hr instead of $10.

If some foreigner beats you for a job then you deserve to fail. Soft skills is the most important thing upon hiring and since they can't speak good English, their soft skills have a hilariously low ceiling. The only classmates I know that can't find a job because of foreigners beating them out are absolutely bottom of the barrel. Bad students, bad communication skills, unlikable losers. You're getting your ass kicked by someone who can't even talk.

What province friend?

I'm doing teaching right now and let me tell you, 80% of my classmates seem ill fit to be a teacher, and either they won't graduate because they'll fail their practicum, or they just will never get hired cause I can tell they'd bomb any interview.

Becoming a teacher is mostly about connections really. If you personally know school district higher ups you'll get in. It's how I'll get in.

In my city at least, everyone is going in asking for the same wage, people aren't undercutting anyone by asking for lower wages for the same work, so the good rise, and the shitty fall. In fact saying "I know that this job says 50k/year salary, but I'll do it for 40k" just seems wrong, like employers would be offended that someone would do something like that.

You go to school until your late 20s, and don't start making good money until you're well into your 30s? By the time you're rich you just wasted your best years in poverty and debt.

Point is you will never get the opportunity to make millions as an engineercuck for life
>>
>>25952789
Well, you kinda do. I mean oil companies, consulting companies, they all have management making millions that are engineers. Some of the richest people in the world are engineers. I don't get what you're saying.

Also why do you have such an obsession with making that much money? In any field you have a very small chance of making that much, and being that rich is overrated; best to just settle for well off.
>>
>>25952603
> Are you a teacher now or something?

No. Right now, I'm just relaxing and enjoying my first year of retirement. But at some point I would like to see if I can volunteer in an educational environment. For example, I could do something like mentoring at the high school robotics club, or some other STEM thing like that were my expertise in software engineering could help.

School is 21-25 or 22-26 if you go straight after college instead of waiting. Residency money is like 60-80k/yr where I am but that's just 2-5 years and then you should be hitting big bux as an attending between 27-31 years old.

And you don't feel poverty or debt in your student years because #1 the debt isn't something you pay back until you're done residency (meaning big bux time) and #2 the debt's interest rate is barely higher than inflation where I'm at and #3 you get loans of roughly 50k/yr in spending money while you're student (an amount you can easily pay back with your future salary no matter what specialty).

The downsides are really just the residency hours but after that you can literally work part-time (~20h/week) and bank over 100k/year.

A business degree is literally a meme. You learn nothing from it-- its sole purpose is to make connections.

If you want to be a businessman, go use that money for university to startup a venture of some sort instead.

Chef friend makes $22/hr, got offered work from dozens of places out of state with accommodations.

With the current food culture, good chefs are basically rock-star status nowadays. Plus there's a shortage of them in the world. Anybody can cook, but chefs create menus and innovate recipes.

Lol I'm not going to bother reading this shit thread, but just know that you guys are all ants fighting for which wagekuck job is the best. No matter what, you lose!

I'm on the path of retiring at 22 and I still don't understand why people consider going to school and joining the workforce. Talk to him for advice and see what business you can start with the knowledge you have. Or find a mentor or something. Anything is better than working a job for someone else.

Oil will recover. The days for 30 dollar a barrel of oil will be a lovely memory for consumers when oil bounces back in 3-4 years and were back up to 120 a barrel. Perfect time to get into petrol eng, geosci, chem eng if you wanna make some of dat dere oil money

Depends on your experience and level of education. My roommate has a bio degree from Oberlin and he makes decent money, but he spent a few years getting shit pay at a university lab before his current job. If you're really motivated, you can make it work.

Don't be so sure. I think the reason for the oil dip right now is because China is using less oil in their industries. The world is moving forward.

The only thing that could spike oil prices would be if Africa all of a sudden underwent a massive industrial revolution.
