What percentage of people end up doing a job which is unrelated to their studies, University or...
I think more then 55% of people which have an occupation deteriorated their goal when they started studies
so many. i mean it's all about what gets money really. .
It depends, really. Many employers just want to see a college degree - it doesn't really matter what it's in - to show that you have the ability to finish what you start; the job may not require any particular academic training. On the other hand, some positions absolutely require such training.
To take a few examples from my own experience:
1) I spent several years teaching middle school math. Although I actually have a minor in mathematics (and have done math research for the last few years), any degree would have done as long as I passed the math PRAXIS or PLACE test; you don't need to know anything too advanced at the middle school level.
2) My last full time job was editing a math textbook and again, while the classes may have gotten me in the door, it was demonstrating the ability to do the job that got me hired.
3) On the other hand, I now work as a software developer and they absolutely wanted to see relevant education; they didn't even care what languages I already knew, they just wanted to know that I understand the basic concepts and have the ability to learn new languages.
So I can't give you a percentage, but I would guess that it's fairly common for people to move into jobs unrelated to their original studies, with the exception of those that require advanced training.
Rambling enough for you?
My father earned a degree in Agricultural Economics endeavoring to be a rancher. He ended up running a business that was completely unrelated to ranching. However the economics he learned in school helped him out running his business.
when an individual realizes that his friend or neighbor or anybody he knows has become rich because he/she did that particular course or that particular business he begins to feel that even if he does the same thing he will be rich.under this impression he follows the example and eventually lands up to a different industry. This almost happens to most of the people and unknowingly they fall into temptation and end up cursing their current job.

I imagine a few people will notice as my hubs disappear here and appear elsewhere. So I write this forum and my last hub detailing my discontent.There have been issues in the past, but nothing I would leave over. A lot of very good hubbers picked up and left Hubpages this spring and I thought they...
