  1. Honestly if you don’t have friends at the businesses your aplying at your chances are very slim. These days friends an family usaly get the call back, or try a Temp agency.

  2. I earned my Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration/Business in 2008 and still couldn’t find a descent job. I had to go back to the small paying job to keep a work history. So earned my Bachelor of Sciences degree in Christian Ministries in 2012 and also I diploma in Teacher aide but still no job or career. I opened so many accounts in too many companies and no call backs, no interviews, and the two interviews I had the interviewer didn’t call back or email me to say if I did or didn’t get the job. I called back for results but they will not return calls.

  3. i think i can make more money by going to college lets see if i succeed i do love school here so lets just see how far it will take me to get to where i want to be. In foresics.

  4. Im done with Jobs, I did the corporate thing and it sucked, they just wanted me to sell sell sell because im good with people, well f that. I make my own work now. I graduated with a Business/Peace Studies Degree in 09.

  5. There’s no doubt about it that a college education is valuable. I even think there’s hidden value in an online education. The biggest thing to understand is this; When everyone started to get a high school degree, the high school degree lost some value. Once that mentality shifted that made it even more important for you to go to high school. The same theory applies to a college education.
