Skip college

#College is an idiotic waste of time and resources. Take from someone who has two degrees. I am more unemployable now then I was before college. Its not worth it. Skip college and do something else. Only go if its required by low that you have to have a college degree to do the job you want. Start a business, get an apprenticeship, a high school internship. So many other options out their that won't put you into massive debt and waste many years of your employable life.

Is "dumbing" yourself down ever a good idea?

I'm pretty sure this question has already been asked, but is it acceptable, or even a good idea, to "dumb" yourself down on an application? I have a PhD in Emergency Management and cannot get a job in the field because I do not have any experience, so in the meantime, I am volunteering with the Red Cross to get said experience. The only thing that I have ever done is administrative work; mostly in the healthcare field, but I also have degrees in Criminal Justice and Healthcare Administration. I have applied for literally hundreds of administrative assistant jobs, but either hear nothing or get the obligatory rejection letter. My theory is that I should not list my higher degrees (PhD and Masters) when applying for AA jobs, but is that being deceptive or strategic??

Urg, recruiters....

When people for some reason think I have a Graphic Design background because I have an animation degree. They sure don't know a lot about animation and out training. Most of us with animation training would not do well as graphic. designers. #graphicdesign #animation #degrees #animationtraining #recruiters #rant #annoyed #art #training
