I appreciate the honesty! My dad and oldest brother are both financial advisors/retirement planners who work for themselves. They guide millions of dollars and map out the futures of some of the most influential people in the state, and yet, no degree is required to do what they do.cowboysfan wrote: ↑Mon May 22, 2017 4:43 pmI'm an academic advisor at a community college. I like my job a lot and have three degrees...but so what. I also have a large amount of college debt that will probably never get paid. Imo college is not worth it. I would gladly hand my degrees and debt back to where it all came from for a lesser job. College can be very overrated and is definitely over priced. My job requires a masters degree but in all honesty, an employee at a dollar general store could do what I do.
My brother got his degree in biochemistry because he originally wanted to get into medicine, so he has a degree but doesn't use it!
