All true but what about other courses like architecture, arts, business etc if we pursue it from a good college?
Not true at all! In many places a University degree is overrated. When you graduate, you'll be competing with thousands of other students with the exact same paper that says you're good at following instructions. Have you heard that America is 1 trillion dollars in student debt?Don't be brainwashed thinking engineering, law, science or what ever will guatantee you a job. Trust me kid, when you go in the real world, they ask for WORK EXPEREINCE. The restuarant i work at consist of many post uni kids who can't find an engineering job or ehat ever.
And many law or engineering jobs are miserable. Fact.
Yeah true. I have seen people having degrees in engineering field and still can't find a decent job.
@BlackParade How do you think you get work experience? Yes, there is an endless cycle of employers who look for experience and people who can't get experience. It's all about breaking through the cycle by getting that first job. People who have degrees are much more likely to get that first job than people who don't. It's only a matter of whether or not having a higher chance of initially breaking into the workforce is worth the debt. For those who get scholarships and won't have much/any debt, the decision is a no-brainer. How do you get a scholarship? - high GPA- high SAT/ACT scores"And many law or engineering jobs are miserable." Opinion. As for the people you are referring to who can't get jobs with their engineering degrees, perhaps they didn't get their degrees at competitive universities. Perhaps they've been charged with a misdemeanor or they were fired from their high school job at McDonald's for disorderly conduct back in the day. (continued)
Maybe no degrees "guarantee" jobs, but if any of them do, it's the ones I listed. And even if they don't guarantee jobs, you'd be a fool to think your chances are any *better* without one.
Check out engineering truth a YouTube channel. And https://youtu.be/uugCRJXQXW0
No, thy dont. About 30% of graduating engineers in Ontario don't get hired.
In places like where i live (Toronto, Canada's most popular city) we are saturated with unapplicable university grad students. My guifance concellor said all her rich friends in high school are all went to college. While all the 4 year uni kids are drowning in debt.
@BlackParade First of all, you are ignoring EVERY other factor besides degree type. There is quality of education, reputation of school, criminal record, work experience, reasons for leaving prior jobs, just to name a few. Plus, if you live in Canada, it's possible that it is simply an ENTIRELY different situation for you, so what is the point in trying to tell me I'm wrong in the first place?

People should know how to speak and should be street smart no point of being a nerd and a top grader if you can't even convince someone for something or can't talk confidently a perosn who is not so much educated but is street smart becomes more successful
And depends on the degree At least in India the engineers , peooel with psychology and Pol science degree are getting nowhere , so it gets useless
Especially with the job market. I know people with bachelor degrees getting laid off and getting turned down jobs like McDonald's and such because they're 'overqualified' when they get laid off and just need a paycheck.On a separate note, it depends if your field cares about a degree. My field cares more about portfolio, however a degree is helpful.In addition, you can get decent jobs not requiring a degree. My dad has an associate degree in a completely unrelated field doing what he does now. His field is extremely competitive and he makes well over 100K
Any reason to support your opinion?
