Do want a well paying job when you get out of college? Get a technical degree so you will develop skills that are valued by the job market. No skill, no pay. It isn't Rocket Science although that pays pretty well.

Study psychology, history, art, women's studies and such and cruise through college but it is going to be a dry job market when you graduate. Do the hard work for 4 years and it will repay you for a lifetime.

Look at the top and bottom of THIS LIST and you will see what I mean.

Did you see the comments at the bottom? Here lies a big problem with today's younger generation, from someone lamenting they would be unsuccessful at a (more challenging) field:

"Meanwhile, I have off-the-charts verbal skills that no one will pay more than about $10 an hour for (if they pay at all), and artistic ability that I can't afford to develop. It all seems like a giant catch-22."

This is a disconnect. If she actually tried to get a little technical background, she could excel at communicating user requirements, drafting technical journals or publications, or a myriad of other "more technical" fields that require effective communications.

She sounds more like the type that wants to go work for Hallmark, writing their new line of "Creative Expressions" greeting cards. Sorry young lady--the world doesn't need many of those jobs.
