"Forget everything college has taught you. You won't be needing it for this job. Oh, you didn't go to college? Sorry, that means you're underqualified."
@YourFBIAgent, so unfair
@megamanx181x, yes and no..... that feels exactly as unsatisfying to write as it is true. You learn important lessons that are at least tangentially related to your job. Often enough though it’s simply one more way to prove you’re smart and capable of learning new things.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read work done by some people with their Masters and was.... disappointed.... it’s not foolproof.
However, it gives employers a way to wade through huge piles of candidates, discover your interests of study, and be sure that you’ve done more than sit in your mom’s basement.
... you know, that’s really all it is. An expensive piece of paper to show that you have done more than sit in your mom’s basement.
@Canis Arktos, Despite that, im working on my second bachelors now. I am upset at the money spent and wish I could just go back to work but I have truly loved learning so much about the world and myself. I don’t regret it.
Ok, I wish I had picked a more marketable degree the first time through but still, I don’t because I learned a lot the whole way through. Much more than I would if I had stuck with my desk job.
@Canis Arktos, that’s the truth right there
@YourFBIAgent, omg I had to come back to this pic after sliding away just so I could upvote this comment. This has never been more true.
Except for nursing degrees 😊
@kittenmaster12, I am a man currently going through my school's RN program.
Everyone in my class wants me to be their gay best friend.
I'm not even gay.
@LookOutASni, the fvcking struggle of having all your classes with 90% women
@kittenmaster12, serious question, why would anyone want to be a nurse?? I have mad respect for nurses but it seems like toughest grossest job to deal with sick people all day
@addibruh, I ask myself that every day at work and school, yet, I keep going. I guess it's because I feel someone has to do it, and it might as well be me.
It helps when I put myself in my patient's situation and ask myself what I would want. Then it becomes clear what I have to do.
@addibruh, well nursing has some of the best specialties. I’m a Nurse Anesthetist and make great $$$, love my job, work with awesome people, and it’s frequently one of the top 10 jobs around!
@LookOutASni, I'm in my highschool's CNA program and I think there are only 3 guys to the 40 something girls. (What are your thoughts on being an RN btw)
@mrGrizzIes, I'm not an RN. I'm studying to become one. I am currently a CNA, however.
As for my opinions on CNAs: You have to have a heart for this kind of work. CNAs are overworked, underpaid, verbally and sometimes even physically abused very often. The hours are long and the work is exhausting. I have seen many CNAs who were simply not cut out for the work burn out and either quit, get fired or become bitter.
HOWEVER, you can find satisfaction in that you are helping people either become better or die with all afforded comfort and dignity. I honestly could not imagine doing anything else.
@LookOutASni, whoops, I guess I need sleep. Thx for the reply😀
Feeling very lucky to actually be doing a job which requires my degree .... then again I only did my degree specifically to do my job so no other choice really!
Did a Film degree. Work in Sport and Fitness.
