In the past, I would say this generally meant going into more of a blue collar work environment, however nowadays there are some well paying skilled trade careers. Some that don't require (however still encourage) going on to earn a Bachelor's Degree.
So ladies, do you look down on this career choice? I haven't ever attended a 4 year university but I still would consider myself ambitious, hardworking, and take my schooling seriously. It's just that I'm not pursuing a 4 year (+) type of career. I intend on turning it into one, if that makes sense, but as of right now, I'm basically attending a trade school.

Depends on what skilled trade. A car restoration degree is kinda "eh" from the reactions I gathered. Degrees such as an instrument tech are rather respected though. My friends (fem) find this degree to be really good and they think it's actually a very smart move because its a two year degree that can pull around $90/hr after two weeks of nightshift.
I think it mainly depends on what you make of your degree and whether you take pride in your work. Any doctor can make his profession look like a joke.0
