OT college degree
- Congratulations, Yana! May you find a job that uses your hard earned
From the other side: I have spent twenty years wondering why I spent so
much money getting one of those funny pieces of paper (BS - which I tend
to translate as Bull S---), but I am still planning on sending my kids to
college. I just hope that they study something which will help them earn
LOTS of money. It is unfortunate that many employers require a college
degree, (field of study is irrelevant) for jobs that could be done by
people without one, and I'm not just referring to entry level positions.
For all those who are irked by my position, I do recognize that certain
fields of study are both relevant and necessary for certain jobs. I just
bemoan the fact that there are so many situations in which a college
degree is necessary only to prove that the applicant is "trainable".
