Are you in a job now that uses the degree you earned in college?
I never got a traditional 4-year degree, so the short answer would be "no."
I do use my knowledge as a certified massage- and aromatherapist in my daily life, but I don't use it specifically in my job here at HubPages... unless you count diffusing essential oils at home to help me cope with the stress.
I am using my comp sci degree as a self employed computer consulting company owner...
yeah, i graduated with the course information technology and now i'm a freelance webmaster. ;-)
In a short answer no. I qualified in Graphic Design but now prefer SEO and Web Design which was a module I learned and this is what I want to do.
yes but my field of work is hospitality and im a chef and you will commonly stumble upon the argument of the relevance of a degree in that field. Many say you dont need one, I say you don't need one but you should have one because i have tasted the fruit of my labor at school and the juice was definetly worth the squeeze
Nope! lol can't find a job at all let alone find one in the area of the college degree...sucks big time.
Lontach, did you graduate recently? How long have you been looking for a job?
Well yes i graduated last september but finished college last may and I've been looking for a job ever since! lol, It's just due to the lack of jobs at the mo cos of the recession bulls*it. Like there are a lot of jobs in certain areas, but none in areas such as biomed, pharma, or nanotech and so on...
If I had have done a computer sci or IT degree then I'd have a tonne of options right now...
Well, mine is from my old country, in Canada it is worth nothing. Double dog dare sucks!
Not currently. I used my degree (biochemistry/molecular biology) for approximately 8 years in a biotech company, then quit working to stay home with the kiddos.
Finger paint and preschool projects don't really require knowledge of the Krebs cycle or coagulation pathways
nowadays - the Historical Methods and Propaganda (including Poli/Religious Thought) studies seem particularly useful.
But, I created my own curriculum around my interests and now create my own income around my interests .. so maybe it is directly related.
Also indirectly - academic writing makes up a healthy proportion of my work.
Nope. I have a Master's in psychology (research psychology), but I work as an audiobook editor.
Well, and now that I think about it, I kind of do - I concentrated on child development, and now I have two children, so that does come in kind of handy. :-)
No, to my father's disapproval.
I have a professional degree in architecture. Was on the path toward registration and then decided I'd rather be home with my daughter.
Loved my education though, and am glad I had it!
Well, I studied real estate band then bought a flat which I am renovating. So I guess the precedent has already been set with Maddie, and therefore yes I have used my degree
I just wanted a degree to be honest, wasn't fussed about the career. I'm a bit of a libertine, a mercenary, never wanted the 30 year long 9-5 career. I want to be a mover and shaker, 2 years there, 3 years there, some travel, a book, a bar, whatever comes.
While I am utilizing many of the things I learned at college, I am not utilizing my degree.
Sort of. I have an English degree and an accounting minor.
Beelzedad: Have a question about temperature.
Seems to me the most fundamental of properties is the cold of space and the heat of solar mass from which all else derives. Was wondering how much importance this is given in cosmological physics be there such a thing.
Yes, in that my degree directly relates to my job.
No, in that the "real" world mostly requires what colleges can't offer.

Does having a college degree make you smarter or merely more skilled?
by globaltechsource 5 years ago
Average tuition at four-year public colleges in the U.S. climbed 6.5 percent, or $429, to $7,020 this fall as schools apologetically passed on much of their own financial problems, according to an annual report from the College Board, released Tuesday. At private colleges, tuition rose 4.4 percent,...

Is a college degree a measure of intelligence?I don't have a degree. Because of that I think I have a chip on my shoulder. I see so many people out there with degrees that are just plain morons. I think, nowadays more then ever, it is more about money, and showing your...

With the rising cost of tuition, increased debt amongst young adults, and the low job rate, is college even necessary anymore? Too many college graduates are unable to find jobs and have a large chunk of school debt they have to begin paying off. Is it really worth it?

The common wisdom is that you should go to college, get a good education, and find a job afterwards and you will be financially successful. Isn't that an outdated concept? The average college grad is unemployed for two years after graduation, and when I went to teller training a month after I...
