What'd I go to school for?

**Disclaimer: I'm an angry bugger**WTF did I spend four years in college for? No, really. Tell me. SOMEONE.Why did I waste thousands upon thousands of dollars at one of the top Universities in the US when I could've gone to Europe ten times over. Why did I waste all those hours of studying to graduate in the top 20% percent (out of like 10,000 students!) when I could have been partying and getting wasted? Why did I walk with honors to receive my BA in English only for the entire Journalism world to go to shiit 6 months after? How did I end up wasting my life at this company that refuses to allow a COLLEGE eduated employee go unnoticed? ONE job I'm looking into and I can't apply because I'm not a Sup? IT'S ADMIN PEOPLE. Oh, if hind sight was 20/20, I wouldn't have wasted my time in school.And vent over.::bows::I love you. Back to my underpaying job.

    Im with you Tess! These companies are crazy! I have a college degree and Im doing customer service...Getting bitched at all day every day and for what? $11 damn bucks and hour! These companies suck and so does the economy! How can I be over qualified for jobs that pay more than this one?!?!? I get mad every time I go to pay a student loan! Lets revolt!

    i agree 10000%. the standards some companies have are ridiculous. they ignore amazing employees/candidates for the stupidest reasons. keep your head up -- either they will realize your fantastic-ness, or you'll find a new place that WILL. i love you!

    welcome to my world. they told me to get my education done first so that i have a greater advantage in my career. a B.A. and M.S. later.....no one wants me!!! the economy has a lot to do with it BUT some employers that are hiring are just ridiculous, including the government!! hopefully it gets better soon though....keep searching!

    Jaims, you know first hand. My app for that internship is still under consideration. A month later. No idea whats going on with it. No update. Nada ANother job came up, but I'm not quailied because I'm not a supervisor. Meanwhile, I meet the requirements above and beyond. They don't want me because they'll have to pay me. This company doesn't like people with degrees. That's what I'm starting to discover.

    I couldn't agree with you more!!!I feel the exact same way!!! I'm still working where I used to work before I graduated, because everything out there wants to pay me less than I make now!!! I've been trying to make the career move for months now. Sometimes I really feel I wasted all that time and money, but then again, you also did it for yourself.Hang in there, something amazing will come your way.
