    Dear god, I would rather kill myself slowly and painfully than have any of these careers.

    Not only do many of these careers suck hard, but most of those don’t need degrees at all, none of them specifically require the useless degrees (arts history, drama, communications, etc.) and you misrepresent the mean annual wage pretty bad.

    HARDLY ANY JOBS REQUIRE A DEGREE. ANY MONKEY CAN GET A DEGREE ESPECIALLY THOSE SOFT OPTIONS LIKE BUSINESS, ARTS, MARKETING ETC. I’VE LEARNT THROUGH EXPERIENCE THE MOST TALENTED GUYS IN BUSINESS DON’T HOLD DEGREES ANYHOW. ALSO WORTH MENTIONING SOME OF THE USELESS CANDIDATES IVE TAKEN ON HAVE BEEN FROM THE SO CALLED TOP TIER UNIVERSITIES BOTH IN US AND UK. NOT BEEN IMPRESSED.

    HAHAHAAH I love Michael Scott, but this is so true. I’m doing Project Leading with my Communications degree and the rest of my time is spent on my blog:

    Except the problem is, someone who has some type of Liberal Arts degree most likely isn’t going to be interested in any of these boring careers… so this article is pretty much useless.

    Lame.

    Wow, if only it were this easy. I’m laughing out loud at how simple this article makes acquiring these gigs sound. The truth is that most of these jobs require an unlikely combination of superhuman charisma, profound luck, deep connections and timing to materialize for the average liberal arts grad. “start in an entry level position and work your way up into middle management” is about as simplistic as telling someone “it’s easy to get into Harvard Law School, just pull off a 4.0 GPA from a highly regarded college, score in the top 2% of LSAT test takers and make some room in your life to seem passionate about something other than studying”.

    Yes, I’d rather kill myself than do any of the above jobs listed. Even so the in this economy the careers listed are almost impossible to get. Of course I’m in California where any job is impossible to even get an interview with right now. I’m glad I earned my BA even though it has not done me any good as far as getting the “dream job.” Things are beyond hard out there. Right now I’m planning on leaving the country to work. Had no luck in the US yet I’ve gotten job offers out of the country. So, I’m going.
