#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.
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??
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
