Bit of writing that comes to mind:   
   
"Well of course, the most pernicious disease in the world is stagnation. We all know that, yeah? I mean, that stuff will eat your whole life away if you let it. And a lot of people do.    
Think of it: you’ve got a job you can hardly stand… but it pays the rent, so you keep it. You’ve fallen into a clique you’re not completely in tune with… but they make you feel wanted, so you carry on. You’re clinging to a series of ideas that don’t quite fit the facts… but they help you feel you’ve got a handle on the world, so you keep on clinging.    
And, of course, you’re miserable. But in a tolerable, manageable sort of way. To take a chance on a new direction, to turn your back on all these little bits and pieces of security that almost (not quite) work… well, better to be manageably miserable than a flaming bonfire of spectacular failure, eh? And before you know it, every moment of your life has gone fluttering away."

You have a degree, and with a ton of effort might be able to score interviews here and there, but will be denied on account of your lack of experience.

Eventually, most people get that interview, get that job, but then it turns out to be "just another face in the crowd" kind of job.

the comic should either continue, and show that with this learning comes more experience allowing you to eliminate your handicap of "lack of experience,"

OR

Say this is mainly for Art Majors, Philosophy Majors, and other **** like that.

"No we won't train you. We only hire people with previous experience." Said every business ever.

You are all going to hate me for this, but people who majored in stupid **** shouldn't be complaining. Also, people who could only get into a bad University shouldn't complain either. No company wants to hire a graduate from some **** school, no offense. I graduated with a degree in a science field, and got a job right away.

Can't you just like get a job while getting the degree? Nothing big or anything, just to get experience?

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

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.

Ask yourself this as well: Is a degree or experience worth more to employers?
If you have ever had a job, you'll know that in most cases, it is experience. So after high school, you for the most part, have 2 options; Going into the work force or going to college. By the time you get that piece of ass wipe you call a college degree, someone who went straight into the work force in the same field as you already has 2-4 years of experience on you and no college debt to pay off, while you are just now getting out of college and expecting the same level job they have and expect to make more than them with no experience (which just isn't going to happen). See an issue with that picture?

That's why I try to get a scholarship due to my good grades. Then to become a biochemist, the point where you get experience things get much easier, like part time jobs. Ofcourse that still does not make your point less true, I'm just saying I think a degree from a good college and experience combined will get you the job you want, it's a long road, and it's never easy, but I'm sure as hell willing to walk it and try.

I plan to study Chemical Engineering at University next year, but I'm making sure that I do a degree with some work experience in Industry, as this will allow to me to get the experience that is so essential to find a decent job these days. I just hope that all the money that goes towards my degree will be worth it :/
