YDI. Degrees and college time don't mean shit when getting or keeping a job.
If you don't know how to put your degrees to use or if you have no work experience, then no, no they don't. I work with plenty of college graduates that don't have social skills and the high school graduates that are smarter and more proactive and ambitious get paid just as much. Hell, there are plenty of college graduates that can't even get interviews because they don't know how to talk with people or fill out a friggin RESUME.
my father dropped out of high school. he now makes three times the salary of the average high school teacher, which requires at least two years of college or university. degrees are important in a lot of cases, but not all of them. you can make a lot of money sans degree if you find the right job and are good enough at it.
It doesn't matter what the masters is in, it's the fact that she had the drive to get one when you didnt. They don't care that it's a masters in math, just that she has a masters.
i dont know what you both got your bachelors in but look at it this way, she most likely has student loans to pay back for a masters in a field she cant get a job in.
so what? is she supposed to sympathize with the fact that the person who replaced her probably has a bigger debt? If I was in her position and my replacement was a single mom barely able to put food on the table for her 4 young children, I still wouldn't give a flying fuck.
no. you missed the point completely. at least the OP didnt waste all that time and money to get a masters in an unrelated field. like i said, i am not sure what their undergrad was in (it could have been athletic training, it could have been underwater basket weaving) but the OP didnt waste additional time and money. it still sucks she lost her job. why dont you simma down.
One of my best friends is attempting to get her masters in International Conflict Resolution. She's also been an assistant softball coach/recruiter at the college level for years. You can't base a person's experience on what their degree is in. You don't necessarily know what she was doing for work while going to school....
But doesn't the OP's job experience count for something as well 0.o? Unless the girl also has similar or more experience in that field too then well, too bad for the OP.
