I'm not sold on these modern management techniques.

I have a BS in economics, it doesn't have alot of use day to day. That's why I flip burgers.

LOL

A job as a shop hand works much better. Not nearly as amusing though. roflmao

A degree doesn't always show how smart, or not, you are. It shows you have the ability and willingness to learn.
What does a Business degree really qualify you to do?
You don't have to have an Accounting degree to become a CPA, but it makes it a little easier.
My wife has a BA in Art History but she has been practicing Law for 30 years.

I wouldn't get too excited .... it's probably a reach around.

So what do you call a Bachelors, Masters, or doctorate in nursing, medical doctor etc.
There are actually many degrees you get in college that are also vocations. Very good ones.
But they are difficult so most do not go that route.

Still kinda amazes me how many positions require/filled because of a Bachelors degree requirement vs. years of experience.

Companies have no clue how much talent their passing up. A perfect example is the military Senior NCO.

IMO a BA is way over rated.

I always enjoy the construction job openings that want a resume, really?

since the 70's commercial const. has been a job by job hire on process for gen. contractors. listing all of ones work could easily take 7-8 pages for anyone that has done it 10 yrs or more.
pointless step in the process and proves nothing, you can tell more about a hand by looking at their tools and hands than what is printed on paper.


the other is const. super. degree required, don't have to have a days worth of experience to take over a multi million $ job as long as you have a pc of paper that says you graduated. bang

When I was in high school in the late 90s/early 2000s, all I ever heard was along the lines of "just get a degree, doesn't matter what it is, just get a degree".

In retrospect, that was total BS.
