I always hear people complaining about how hard it is for graduates to get a job, but almost every graduate I talk to, even with liberal arts degrees, finds a well paying career no problem.

All the people I know in EE have internships or offers with decent or better GPAs.

Quite the excellent strawman you got there.

Credentials aren't as important as connections and work experience, there are individuals where I work that earn 6 digit salaries and have zero hours of college schooling.

That really depends on where you want to work and what type of function. There are plenty of jobs where you simply can't get in unless you went to a good college and did have very good grades.

I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, so I just went the direction I was being encouraged. My dad wanted me to be happy, but didn't know that music was a dead career. My high school teacher wanted her students to pursue her art, so she pushed me to do it. My college wasn't going to turn down the opportunity to take my money if I was willing to offer it. It's not their job to make sure I do research into the field. It was only when I auditioned to masters school did every one of the four professors tell me I have no chance of making a career out of what I was doing. Those few hours with those seemingly cruel professors taught me more about the practicality of my pursuit than 8 plus years otherwise. I feel into a depression, got back up, started pushing carts for Walmart at minimum wage, and am now working in home mortgage for $13.75/hour while still devoting about $500/month to my student loans. I'm very, very bitter about going to a private college while my wife went to a state school for English with a debt of $13k. I know some people would say the degree might have helped me get the job I have now, but my best friend from work went the same route I did at my place of work (being brought on first as a temp, etc.) and didn't go college. If it did help, it was definitely not worth the money. I know I only have myself to blame, but I wish I had some more discouragement to pursue art since only the best of the best have any chance and the rest just perpetuate a system of giving kids a handicap as they enter the job market.
