    My parents stopped me from studying law/International relations. They told me it would be useless. They forced me to study hospitality management. I hated it and the college. The worst 4 years of my life. I never managed to find an entry-level job since graduating from that none sense. It's a good thing they knew what was best for me. Unemployed and living in their basement now (35 years old).

    Let's be real here, most college degrees are useless. We're just studying college for the expeirence.

    Ok in sociology, you can actually get quite far and move from different industry field-customer service, management, writing if you like, lawyer and whatnot.
    Now I studied music industry arts (music performance-audio production) and well it’s not sumn you can get a job w, it’s more-so you you do freelance work or become an entrepreneur, get jobs in sound recording or whatnot. But even then, you learn abt how sound is achieved in games and movies, sound design could really inspire you, and you could work for a start-up bc like mentioned, it’s abt self-promo and if you can basically sell yourself, you can and could sell your art and work. And w that, you learn a lil abt law, psych (bc how the sound and music affects the brain so neuroscience) and even develop an interest in music therapy which leads you maybe play around w music and sound 😛
    It’s all abt connecting one study to another related career field really

    Best degrees that will always be stable are STEM degrees.

    My Aunt majored in IT. She’s never worked in IT. She’s only worked in liberal arts because that’s the only place she can find work. When she graduated from college, a lot of what she found was liberal arts jobs not counting any teaching jobs.

    I have a degree in Film and Television 5 years ago and had a little experience on the field. Now in the middle of the projects I'm working on, I got a side job to earn some money and learn other stuff online like programming, marketing and graphic design without leave the film behind.

    I think the greatest mistake that younger people make is believing that an undergraduate degree prepares one for a specific career, with the possible exceptions being accounting and teaching. In my view, it doesn't matter what you major in, it could be medieval European history, so long as the curriculum requires extensive reading, critical thinking and analysis, and oral and written communication. Those skills apply to almost any occupation and will open doors you may not have known even existed.

    5:07 Yeah your employer is breaking some serious laws over there bro. I'm not saying you're not good at your job but there are things you need to sign off on while your filling that role.

    People on here: I done this, but went into graphic design/film/photography instead!
    Me, scared I won't get a job even though me degree is literally in this field: 👁️👄👁️

    I have a BA in Conceptual Arts.

    Don't ask…seriously, just don't. The stereotype of the useless liberal arts degree definitely applies in my case. I graduated a few months before 9-11. But I did freelance illustration on the side, starting when I was in the university. Worked a few different jobs in the years since then & have also developed an interest in history (particularly religious & military history–they do go together a lot). Plus I've lived in five states (counting where I am now) & traveled through much of the South & parts of the northeastern US. I've learned more outside the ivory tower than I ever did inside it.

    I got my Harvard Diploma from the claw grab game at the bowling alley, the major was in “Funology”. I wanted the Lobster Harmonica but someone else won that.

    I originally went to college for studio art, but 2 semesters in and I realized that treating a fun, rewarding hobby as a study actually killed a lot of my passion for it. Switched to a double major in geology and geography (focused on GIS). I work for national grid now, I help manage their GIS.
    My second two majors were vastly easier than studying art. I have a lot of respect for fine arts majors. It's HARD to maintain motivation and drive for art when it's treated like basic school work.

    Don't go into theoretical math unless you enjoy it enough to think about it in your free time.

    I majored in criminal justice with a minor in business. I now work in hvac. All my college course work got me nothing and is completely worthless. Just don't fucking go to college unless you major in something worth while. That is engineering, nurseing / healthcare programs, accounting, or IT / computer related programs.

    My cousins in Australia work in delivery services and or their version of UPS. One majored in engineering and one majored in accounting. They pack and lift boxes which don’t correlate to their majors.

    I know someone who has a degree in Sociology yet he is unhappy working at a dead end job. This makes me rethink about going to school.

    If you have a CS degree or something else in the related field and work at a Chinese restaurant, that's on you lol Tech degrees are very good.

    A good friend of mine's boyfriend is unemployed with an electronic engineering degree and her other friends are also unemployed with biology, physics, psychology, economics and communications degrees. It still stuns me thinking about it

    Majored in health information science. Wasn't a complete waste of time since some of the coding classes were useful but a good chunk of it was pointless. The diploma version (health office admin) of this degree would have been a better choice in retrospect. Less time, less money, never underestimate the power of diplomas versus degrees.

    I majored in Anthropology with two minors. Currently work in retail but am looking at teaching artist positions or something art related. One of the things I was told by my academic and career advisors to look up common AND uncommon careers. There were even sub fields I never knew existed for this major. Looking at the job market is helpful but differs based on state, city, year, and so forth.

    if I can manage to graduate college in ANYTHING, it'll be a good day.
    It's amazing how life can destroy even the most dedicated and talented–which I ain't.

    He majored in math, physics and philosophy.

    Lol the very first one is pretty funny to me. I’m a chemist, have a Bs in Chemistry. More physicists actually made advancements in chemistry than chemists did. Although they are coupled together, the people who made advancements considered themselves to be physicists, not chemists.
