I don't even have to worry about outsourcing because eastern europe is where lots of western european countries are outsourcing their work to.

But if I was an Amerigan I'd pick petroleum engineering, I heard you literally can't get a starting job that pays less than 80k-ish even if you try.

And petroleum engineering is not even hard (compared to eeng at least)

that's the point. he should be able to have a life even if he is an aspie. the current system encourages a nearly 'big man' style charismatic society where even a complete dipshit with the right connections can secure high level positions

>>51055517
Be very careful what you choose if you are an autist who is poor at making connections.

That said there ARE fields that have ridiculously low unemployment but it depends on the country. Astronomy for example has very very low unemployment in the USA but it's mostly because the subject is very hard and very few people choose it.

If you are social and can make a lot of friends and connections you can do well with pretty much any degree. If anything you can kiss your professor's ass and get into a teaching position. That's how people with meme degrees like women's studies find jobs. Nepotism.

nepotism applies to friends
it's basically when you give out advantages based off of familiarity and not merit

in certain fields you need both merit and a bit of ass kissing to get ahead (hard science is kinda like that)

in other fields ass kissing and conforming to a certain mindset is more important than actual ability (meme sciences come to mind)

>>51055874
make a plan and stick to it
don't be aimless, that's the biggest problem

then you're left with a diploma and ask yourself how come the other guys found a job and you're still unemployed
>>
>>51056001
If you really want a job related to your degree then you should be doing personal projects or other certifications related to the field. Unless what you feel you're missing is that social experience in which case retail can be good. Spending 5 years working at a supermarket to become manager is the long way.

Increase your value to the employer, work out what he's looking for.

>>
>>51059014

It keeps being mentioned in my sociology classes, basically you are supposed to get to know as many people as possible who you can ask for small favors (and the other way around) and get information through them. Note that these are referred usually as network of loose ties and they differ from close relations, namely from those between family and close friends, because people you are in closer relationship with usually don't have access to information radically different from yours and somewhat equal exchange isn't expected between family members.
Basically connections get you information you otherwise wouldn't get (such as job opportunities) and sometimes trades with decreased transaction costs (in form of favors).

t.b.h. why would you study a degree if you're not going to work in the field
>>
>>51064517
because people want to work in that field but since there are not enough jobs for everyone, you have to compete and become special, eventually leading that you pick something you didn't really want to.
>>
>>51064608
t.b.h.h. most universities in nordicks try to allocate positions in different degree programmes according to national demand. that's why really specific degrees have small amounts of people in the first place. it's not comparable to the US where there's zero guidance from the top and degrees go purely depending on demand and why this meme about useless degrees doesn't really work.

arguably it's exactly the opposite that "real" degrees like engineer have less worth currently since do to the shitty economic situation in funland a new engineer has to compete with hundreds of laid off engineers while that one rare gender studies degree holder will go to some pre-determined job provided by the government or some third sector organisation.

of course there's art degrees as such but I don't know much about those so I guess they make it work somehow.
