So you're telling me that philosophy and art aren't going to open up that many doors for me?

Physics masters degree with a 2:2 here! The saddest thing is that I'm too underqualified and under-experienced to get the good graduate jobs but too overqualified for the 						****					 basic jobs. I did my degree for 4 years where I was worked like a dog, I did well in every single year except for that one where I went through a psychological phase and partial depression. Because of that, it severely bought down my grades where I missed out on that crucial 2:1 which most employees ask for.     
   
Without sounding like a bitter arrogant dick, I'm pretty sure my 2:2 in masters physics is worth more than a 2:1 in a bachelors degree of a Business related course. Their workload was no where near as much yet they got all those high profile bank jobs earning £££.

I have a BA in history specializing in Eastern Europe. I work as a laborer at a nursery breaking my back for 8 hours a day, and on weekends I spend my days teaching kids about medieval arms and armor with historically accurate fights both unarmored and armored...

You majored in history... specializing in Eastern Europe... Hope you got some nice conversation skills... since... You will most likely NEVER use it outside of a classroom.

The info above maybe COMPLETE and utter **** on my part. But I just can't see something like that degree being used for anything else than becoming a teacher, or teach kids on the weekends.

You could write a book I guess, or help someone that is already writing textbooks for history.

That's one of the reasons I started my own business. It's called Read 'n Style, LLC. We're going to design and sell a small pen like device that will scan the text and read it aloud to the user. It's going to help people with reading difficulties. My partner and I just made the top four in the Morris new venture business plan competition and we have to present our business plan in front of potential investors on Friday.

<--------- Pic related. It's a picture of our business plan.

**** this college ********

So are you guys aware the college debt now exceeds credit card debt in the U.S.?
The loans colleges offer are similar to that of the ones offered on houses by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac partially responsible for the inflation then recession of 2008 and crashed the housing market. On top of that, when the recession hit, the cost of college tuition actually went up instead of going down like the cost of other things did.
Colleges spend recklessly for things they don't need just to impress potential students with new libraries, sports stadiums and housing, when in reality, they could work together to make tuition lower and more affordable by cutting all the ******** spending they do that in no way improves the quality of the "education" you receive.

I get that it is a supply and demand sort of thing, but how valuable is something when every one else has it? More college students than ever are having to move back in with their parents after they graduate (and when the loan payments are due) because of the incredible debt they are in. They cannot afford a house, they cannot finance anything new, hell, half the time they can't even find a ******* job related in their field and they end up working at some restaurant of damn near minimum wage.

"Internships"

That's what they're supposed to be for anyway, helping you get a job. But I can't even seem to ******* land one of those.

Police and investigations studies here, I'm almost guaranteed to get into the training program after my two years, and from then on out it's gonna sweet government paychecks and pension. Gotta love it when pretty much all of Canada is desperate for new members.

1. Find what you want to do
>you are going to change your career idea a crap load of times
>it happens to everyone
>the best you can do is find a general area of work (like psych or teaching) and use that
>then shadow some people at different jobs to see which ones you'd be interested in doing

2.Take classes at schools tailored for your job
>talk to the people hiring for those jobs
>ask them what you need to know
>talk to councilors about who can provided you the classes you need to get
>if you can get your professors to contact people in the field you are interested in

3. Make contacts
>VERY IMPORTANT
>a lot of idiots get hired just because they know the people in charge
>as an incompetent idiot who got picked because of connections i can tell you it is key
>it will help you get a good job, good pay, and a good reputation
>If you start talking to the people now you can get an apprenticeship type of deal
>they might offer to give you a free college ride and a job when you get out of college

In Sweden, you're essentially guaranteed a job if you graduate as a civilingenjör (civil engineer directly translated), which is 5 years of physics, maths and other science stuff (there are many types of civilingenjörer). The unemployment rate in this group is so low that it can be explained with people switching jobs, and that guy I know who's a house-husband with a degree in civilingenjör specialized in sound, which would be 5 years + some more for specialization. Uhh, the Swenglish is horrible in this text.

DL;DR With the right degree you'll get a job in Sweden.

the problem is you guys think that everyone deserves a managerial job that pays you in bentleys and penthouses. Basically, just like video games, you dont just level up to max potential in one go, you have to gain the experience. Just because you are in school doesn't give you the right to work over someone else, or make you more qualified either. Experience trumps schooling anyday. basically because Im working my way up the manager ladder currently at my job and only after a year have the promise of going from dirt broke to 35k a year. get out there and work, if you want a job for a business, instead of walking in like you own the place, internship there and get them to like you.
