Graduated in may with a degree in computer engineering. I now work as an electronics engineer in a rural area. Low cost of living, $78k a year, had a $16k signing bonus last year which I dumped into link at $6, right as it began mooning. I also have 3 $10k bonuses for this year, the next, and the one after. Cozy job at DoD, telework once a week (eventually being expanded to a permanent option), coworkers are unironically pretty cool. Moving into our new research facility next month, pretty high tech with caterers bringing coffee and food every day. Life is good.

It's hit or miss for most graduates in engineering, I have a friend who worked at Northrop in Huntsville, and he's currently looking for a new job because he hates it there. It really varies from person to person, but everyone I know has a job that pays well at least. I took my current job so I could dump bonuses into crypto in addition to DCA, eyeing retirement before 30. I don't think I'd have been able to do all of this with a degree outside of engineering.

Otherwise you can go blue/grey collar with a lot less training and make similar amounts of money to a college grad. I ended up working in the blue collar field of recycling, which is surprisingly lucrative (for the company) because a typical facility is a secondary mining facility (all that scrap metal), refinery (waste plastic to crude oil), and lumbermill (paper/cardboard gets bought by amazon suppliers) which is very dirty work.

Assuming you’re American & don’t live in a fly over state, then yes as long as you start off at a community college, & then transfer to a public university. Apply to as many scholarships that you can. Other Anons have listed engineering/coding/STEM, but if you graduate with little to no debt then government jobs or a career in academia is 100x better than a typical Wagie private sector job. In the public sector you get tons of benefits like health insurance, increased pay over the years, paid sick leave, paid vacations, etc.

Tbh I highly doubt most English teachers in Asia have a degree. A family friend is moving to Vietnam to teach English and he's retiring from the Army soon, I don't think he has a degree in anything.

Austria/Electronics, there are many companies in that field in my area, but i went to engineering school/HTL (a different kind of high school) and not a university.
I'll start University next year since my type of school is not recognized in most other countries.
Regarding wage I'm doing slightly worse than others working at other companies like mazda or glock with ~100-200€ more per month. Changing companies makes no sense since i qualify for a scholarship after 4years consecutive work which is this September.

I did a B.Sc in Architecture and got a decent job out of school. I got ~70000 first year plus benefits but with Rona we lost OT pay so I am sitting at about 58ish now. Going to go back to masters to wait out the recession but to also be able to get licensed and increase pay at work. Only doing that after working for 3 years was because I got enough from scholarships and have enough savings that I can burn the next two years getting my M.Arch and still have enough to get my own place if/when I work again.

If need be I won't do architecture and do programing or CAD stuff since I am credentialed to that too. School has worked so far only because I had a plan and a contingency plan. Luck helps too.

Don’t listen to anons that say College isn’t worth it cuz of the debt. They’re using stupid females & retarded financially illiterate faggots that don’t know how to properly come up with a plan to graduate with little to no debt as their argument to not go to college. If you have no degree (or a technical skill), then you will always be forced to compete with EVERYBODY ELSE and you’ll keep being priced out of a decent standard of living. There was an anon here that fell for the “College is a scam” meme and he was forced to work so many shit jobs and he’s just a NEET now. It’s better to get a government or other public sector job than be forced to work in retail or some other low skilled labor job like an Amazon worker.

It’s not hard for most countries.

You do need a degree to teach English in Japan (and most countries, but not including Vietnam, like in other anon’s vetfag cousin anecdote). The major doesn’t matter, typically it’s a degree in photocopying. It’s a very comfy way to get a work/resident visa in Asia if you don’t need to worry about money. (Not so comfy if your TEFL pay check is your primary income.) Japan has an endless number of schools/eikaiwas looking for pale gaijin faces. You’ll eventually find one that’s happy with 2-3 hours work per day.

>Don't live in a fly-over state

In a fly-over state like Iowa you can actually get a low-training blue collar job that allows one to live a middle class lifestyle (working in ethanol or food processing, for instance) if both partners (assuming you do normalfag things like get married and have kids) are working.

Good luck finding that in the ultra-competitive dystopias in New York and California.

It’s not hard but you do need a degree. Vietnam is currently an exception and Cambodia is always the Asian country of last resort. It’s not a career if you’re ambitious or really set on working in a cubicle. It definitely beats retail/service jobs, and it’s a good option if you’re simply looking for a way to move to a country and get your bearings.

it's pretty ok overall, yet wages are lower compared to the us/Switzerland and and taxes are also ~10-15% higher depending on the state. So if you'd move to europe i'd rather move to Switzerland since its almost the same otherwise.
I'm thinking of relocating afterwards for 3-5 years to save up more, yet getting a job that requires a clearance like i assume you have (since you do some dod work) is pretty much impossible.
So ill probably into Switzerland, yet they aren't known for their huge electronics sector.

>Cut corners where you can
This is the way to go. Make friends with the Chinese or Indian students, they have vast networks and plenty of old tests to study off of. Most profs do not change their tests every year. Also learn how to cheat. Write the long hard formulas on your calculator or something. The biggest tip for engineering students is to skip most lectures and only show up for tests and labs. Your time is better spent doing lab reports, projects, assignments that are graded, and studying. Do not feel bad about cutting corners. Remember that you're paying for an overpriced piece of paper in the end. Most profs don't even give a shit about your education and would rather be doing research 100% of the time.

I used to write programs for my TI-84 and the "code" for them was just notes for the exam. You can "edit" the program on your TI-84 during the exam and it just displays the "code" you put into it.
