Today, my friend Kate and I were helping build a playground. Halfway through, a construction worker asks where we go to school. I told him we graduated and proudly held degrees in psych. The construction worker stopped mid-dig, glanced at us sadly and said, "yeah that's what my degree's in too." FML
You are not judgmental, and this is FML material. I completely understand, you just spent thousands of dollars on a psych degree, and you were not expecting to meet someone else with that same degree working construction especially since you never planned on working construction yourself. The people telling you that achieving a four year degree in this area is not enough have probably not even achieved a high school diploma. Forget them. Congrats on your degree. If you don't want to end up working construction, then don't find yourself a great job. You can do it!!
You have to be willing to move where the job is. If you aren't willing to move, then yeah..you might end up there. I knew astrophys' and microbiologists working in an inking factory because they couldn't find jobs in the area.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
