You should have put that money into a school that would get you a real job. YDI for thinking you could get a job a 4 year-old could do AND put money into a school for it.
+ many. OP, you're an asshole. you squandered resources because you wanted to be a "chef". someone else could have used those resources to become a real, contributing professional. so YDI, but f the lives of your current or future dependents. their lives are fucked because of your selfishness and short-sightedness.
I think being a chef is a real job. Certainly no four-year-old can make some things I've seen. However, I agree that it is a dumb thing to go for, unless you are really, really passionate and patient. Arts and Humanities and the like don't really get you anywhere very soon unless you're fucking amazing. Unless you apply to be a teacher, but you'd probably have to saddle on a few extra classes.
Getting a degree in something you're passionate about does not make someone an asshole. First of all, the OP never said how he paid for school -- if it was his own money and he wanted to pursue a culinary career, it's his right to "squander" it, although I don't agree with that term here. So you don't think his field is useful or valid. That's your opinion. Lots of people are having trouble finding jobs right now, even in "professional" fields--that doesn't mean his culinary degree is useless and will never lead to anything. Not to be rude, but last time I checked, people had the right to choose their own career fields without being attacked for "squandering resources" and "being selfish."
Burger King has extremely high standards. Clearly you just don't meet them.
It has nothing to do with you or your degree, it's the economy. I've seen so many FML's that say "I have ___ degree and got turned down by ___ FML" It sucks, and FYL, but...we're all going through it.
Actually I disagree, its probably because youre doing it wrong too. Most restaurants dont give a crap about a culinary degree because experience > than the degree. I work as a cook, I havent got a degree. Myself and someone with a 2 year culinary degree have been hired for this same position, guess which one was fired do to incompetence and overconfidence? I worked as if I wanted to learn from the experience and he went off of his school knowledge. I'm still here, hes unemployed.
Today, I am unemployed or have a poorly paying job, despite my extensive education. This may or may not have something to do with the recession that is hurting everybody. FML There, now half the site is redundant.
#13, degrees do not guarantee success, as we are learning here. Statistically speaking, though, there is a correlation between education and a high salary. Obviously, people fresh out of college shouldn't be too picky these days. Getting refused from Burger King is pretty bad, though. I'm guessing criminal record. #14, learn what conjunctions are.
