Got my associates in May of 2013. Locked down a relevant job in August 2013. Still there. I work alongside scientists, inventors, and executives who can't balance a credit account. If they could, my value in the company would significantly decrease.
I've taken this to mean that no level of degree is any real indicator of big picture intelligence.
I have always said they smarter you are in the books the more common sense you lack
So I recently returned to school to get a degree in app development, but quickly discovered, I'm not that smart and could never figure that out. So I quickly changed to Web Design since I already knew the basics. I learned one other language, and the other, I wasn't taught it properly because of the book we used for that class. So I left school with an Associate's Degree that I can't really use because I really only left with just knowing more about the one web programming language I went into. And every place I have looked for a web design job, they want you to know a lot more languages. So for right now, I can only really say on my applications for other jobs that I do have a 2-year Associate's Degree.
With that said, does anyone here actually have a job/career based off their college degree(s)?
Civics Teacher and Football/Basketball Coach. Have to have a degree to even get a job. So I’m using it lol, but I teach one class and coach the rest of the day.
