Too bad that if it's actually true, you'd be in the extreme minority

The fact of the matter is for the vast majority of people, if you can (have the ability & grades) get into STEM at university, why not study that shit and have a much better chance of pulling good income at graduation instead of hoping for insane opportunities like yours to make 80k on a writing degree a few years out of college. Either you are downplaying the massive amount of work that you put into networking (which requires a different skillset in and of itself) and working your way up your field, or this literally just somehow fell into your lap. Pie in the sky type shit

IIRC most S&P 500 CEOs are engineering majors, followed by MBAs. Evidently it takes a lot of math and coding to get to the top of these corporate ladders

Blogging and Social Media moderating for the Uni.
I also got an internship with a fashion house where I did corporate comms for a bit. When a graduate job opened up - my intern director spoke to the job person (they knew each other) and I was inserted in.


I had the ability to study STEM. I studied physics / chem / programming at high-school and did very well. A STEM course was even my third uni option in the unlikely case the other two writing gigs filled up.
But it's not what I wanted to do with my life. I love communication and saw myself being more valuable in comms than maths. And hard work isn't relative - anybody in any industry can be "lucky" providing they apply themselves and push further than is expected or what is comfortable.

That's why I think the HS system in North America is shit. How do you expect a kid at 18 to decide what he wants to do for the rest of his life?

HS needs to either provide you the guidance you need (through well-designed curriculums, courses, activities etc. ) to make an informed choice at graduation (i.e. trade school, CC, state, ivy colleges, military, work etc.), and not leave you without recourse if you don't decide to pursue tertiary education. At present US high-school system accomplishes none of these

What a great outfit, damn. This is a 9/10 for me. If I had half of this guy's sense of style, I'd be set for life. I would've gone with some black loafers, though.

As for the STEM degree circlejerk, I want to share my experience after graduating.

STEM degrees are great, really. They carry more weight in the job market, for sure. One can pull up the numbers and certainly say that a Mechanical Engineering degree pulls more cash than a Psychology degree. It's not rocket science.

One thing that a lot of people are missing, though, is the need for excellent work experience. I don't mean flipping burgers, or working retail, or doing some campus job. I mean doing an internship over the summer, with a respectable firm, and working hard enough to earn a letter of recommendation from a manager. The number of university students, STEM and Liberal Arts alike, with menial work experience is astounding . . . and downright disappointing.

Employers will look at quality letters of recommendation, which are letters from managers. Letters from lecturers are a dime-a-dozen. Why? Because they haven't seen you in the workplace, besides that, they've already written hundreds of these things for other students. Employers want to know how you handle yourself under increasing demands, how you're like when you don't want to work, how you get along with other people, if you're trustworthy, etc. Even a letter of recommendation from your retail store experience carries more weight from your MECH 482 professor.

Another things student need to consider is developing a marketable skillset. It's been mentioned here before, but effective communications skills will open many doors for you. This goes along with being able to sell. It doesn't matter what kind of field you're in, you want to know how to sell. If you're going to work in an engineering firm, you'll need to learn how to sell your ideas.

>> No.9448949

Yes yes yes yes yes. STEM degrees are great but at the end of the day all degrees are worth shit without relevant work experience and people skills

>> No.9448977

I cannot stress enough how useful sales experience is. If you are doing research, and you were to apply for an NSI grant, you may have to do a presentation in front of a panel. If you've learned how to sell yourself, and your ideas, they would award you the grant. The best engineers in my firm, the ones who make real money, are the ones who have worked sales internships. These guys are the real drivers, they are proposing (i.e selling) projects to the highest bidder. The guys with no sales experience, the guys who have only worked on their degree (and only have worked campus jobs), are the ones chained to their desk.

It's been mentioned in this thread already, but programming skills are highly useful. I'm not too great in this field, so I won't say much.

Web development and web design skills are important as well. Again, this is not field, but employers are looking for this.

Foreign languages are very, very important. The number of students, STEM and Liberal Arts alike, who don't care about learning/ know a second language is astounding. A second language opens a lot of doors. I would encourage students to learn Spanish, French, German, Russian, Tamil, Mandarin, or Russian. Now the guys in my firm are trying to learn Portuguese now. Secondary languages are hard to learn for sure, but they *do* pay off in the end.

I could ramble on, but the point is:

A degree by itself is useless. If anything, it just adds a few lines to your CV. Students who are looking to build up their CV must have valuable work experience, contacts (who would give you recommendations), and marketable skills.
