californiagrownIf you are math smart: Computer science, civil engineering, IT mgmt
If you are creative: marketing & graphic design double major
If you are average and have the gift of gab: Business
If you just plan on working in the service industry anyways: HBM, or comm
I think it's interesting that business majors so often get lumped together when the vast majority them are complete horse shit, while a couple niche areas are incredibly lucrative. A business admin degree is on level footing with a psychology degrees as far as I'm concerned.
californiagrownIf you are a smart dude, who can talk a little bit, and have good social awareness and skills, you can find a good job anywhere. You'd be surprised at how many dumb, lazy people with shitty social skills are out there in the workforce.
After working at a big boy company, this sort of surprised me. I mean, I've always been pretty cynical of people in general, and make no mistake - my self-esteem is pathetically low, but I've lost count of how many times I've worked with people (with backgrounds that are by all measures much more impressive than mine) and just been dumbfounded by their ability to consistently fuck up the most basic tasks. Like, to the point where I can't take seriously any person who so militantly engages in pissing contests over the employability of various bachelor's
degrees (looking at you, engineers).
californiagrownEveryone that i know who works in a trade over the age of 35 has health problems from it- arthritis, bad back, knees etc. not to mention i can still go into my cubicle job when i break my leg doing my dangerous hobbies, while most trade workers are forced to be parasites of the system and collect unemployment when their dangerous hobbies injure them.
Very true. Although while trade workers get injured on the job, office workers sort of deteriorate slowly over the course of their lives. Not to claim the grass is greener or anything - my hands are so silky soft that I'm destined to work desk jobs for the rest of my life.
