case in point, my oldest friend
he spent 5 years studying chemistry, graduated, then couldnt find a ******* job for it anywhere, ended up having to do TEACHING chemistry for a couple years then when they fell apart he had to go work in a courier service helping doing the inwards/despatching.......

another friend went for IT, studied 5 1/2 years, found work in that easily enough but the IT industry keeps fluctuating depending on business so hes been out of work a couple times

i went to a polytech, studied security for 5 months, had stable work the last 8 years
yeah im not RICH but im not ******* poor or facing unemployment

> studied security

How do they squeeze 5 months out of "Sir, you can't be here..."?

I was pushed to go to college by my family and I still don't talk to them because of it. I am still $59,000 in debt and still digging myself out. I always wanted to be a chef, but my family insisted on going to college and getting a "real" job. I got my Bachelors Degree in Accounting in June 2007. I worked as an accountant for a total of seven months, before I quit and returned to my old job. I'm currently an executive chef at a local hospital and I love every minute of what I do, I might not make as much as I did when I was an accountant, but at the end of the day I'm happy.   
   
For those of you still in school please remember this advice; you can't put a price on being happy. You're going to be working your entire life, so you may as well do something you love.

I hate that second to last panel because I can't tell if she's being a sarcastic bitch or just genuinely friendly.

There's nothing wrong with working in the service industry (although you can make a career from it it is rare and difficult to to). The way Privatized education works is like an investment, you shove ********* of money and your time into it for a degree and you hope that degree will get you somewhere that you want to be with a good job and a happy life. And jobs like that aren't to be looked down upon, because in the end SOMEONE has to be the one to serve your food at a fast food restaurant or deliver your pizza to you. Sure High Schoolers can do this but not everyone has the opportunity to invest in an education. With that knowledge I don't (or at least try not to) look down upon people who do what would be described by most as "menial jobs".

It's funny cuz it's not true. Unemployment for college grads is traditionally 1/3 of that of those with just a diploma. Don't listen to lies of those who want to keep you oppressed. facts below.

Is there really a need for an interview?

"Can you flip burgers?"
"yes"
"You're hired."

Haha, countries with a crysis.
Unless you've got a degree in womens' studies, or philosophy, you should be fine.

The more crap I read about people having problems getting jobs/having worthless degrees, the more I think I should just become a Physicians Assistant. Like it or not.

pretty good career choice. my wife is a Nurse practitioner and makes bank and can pretty much write her ticket anywhere she wants.

In the US, you can make nearly double what a high school grad makes just with a bachelor's degree, and triple with a doctorate.
No one is debating college's usefulness.

Probably another women who chose to get her degree in women studies, philosophy, English, art or some other worthless degree. When people major in something that gives no practical skills and then wonder why they can't get a job I just shake my head.

There is nothing wrong with a degree in either field, just don't expect to get a job after you are done.
