I said:swimcel said:underrated remark. Being tall, dominant, overall good looking and having good social skills will get you far in the STEM field, since everyone in there is lacking those traits if you're only interested in making money then i suggest you get an engineering degree and then branch off to finance.
this is very legit
it's the only real use for an engineering degree, imo.
maths/engineering and then go into actuarial science or finance for an MS.Lance_Armweak said:
I'm not a complete aspie, what I'm really after here is a decent paying job after 4 years of college. I don't want to be living off of 50,000 a year.
another thiing you can do is get shit grades in engineering and then become a product manager and make 80-130 grand bossing around STEM dorks.
quick tip: despite what your daddy told you, most engineers actually make between 50-80k , which is a bogus income at the lower end.
You hear comments like this on this forum a lot.
Most sane people would be happy with a 50k salary.
Not only on this forum, you hear insane comments like this a lot around college/university educated people
Most of the time from finance/business students. Never worked a day in their life but act like they are entitled to own the world. They would rather kill them selves then working a 50 k job..
when the average US Salary is around 30k.. and so many people are happy with it.
A few weeks ago I had a discussion with some business/finance students at my dorm
They really think that after graduation they will start with 50-60k Euros... They have worked a day in their life, yet they think from the first day of work on they will already earn more then most people ever will earn in their lifes.(average employers salary is 30k euros in Germany; For a business graduate the actual entry level salary is 35-40k)
I have so many friends who just work jobs like carpenter and electrician and they are happy as fuck with their job, they never cared about going to college... many of the business students would just laugh arrogant when my carpenter friend would show his pay check.. they would rather kill them selves then swaping with a normal job
I mean yeah its good to try to aim as high as possible as long you are happy. But I dont get the arrogance towards working class people.( I am middle class, most in my family are college educated, i am liberal arts faggot , but I dont get why I should be arrogant towards my friends who just do the so called "simple-labour"
Or am I just a leftist faggot?
