Want a job with your degree? Too bad.


A great post at iwillteachyoutoberich.com outlines why – if you want a job – college is the wrong place to be.

“But one of the stupidest things I heard thrown around was the question of which major would help get a job. It went something like this: “All the econ majors get jobs in consulting, so maybe I should do that…” (thousand-yard stare).”
This is one of those articles I read and instantly agreed.

    That’s not what the article says. It says that people who treat college like a technical school, e.g., just to get a job, probably won’t be happy. He doesn’t say that going to college will make it harder to find a job.

    Where did I say it would be harder to get a job?
