So you need a certified copy of my bachelor degree that you just issued? No problemo

So, this is a little one, but it still fullfilled me with satisfaction.

During my last semester of my bachelor degree I already applied for the masters degree at the same university. So I go through the normal application process and get accepted (yay!), but as I didn't have my bachelor degree at that point, I had to produce a certified copy of my degree as soon as I could. Yes, I had to give a certified copy of my bachelors degree to the university who issued that degree in the first place. And no, these were not different deparments. It was all done by one (!) lady in the examination office!

But whatever, weird bureaucracy is weird. And BOY was it annoying at that university. Because all students of my faculty had to got through one lady. And I think she just hated to do anything. Like, seriously, she was so annoyed when you showed up at her office to just do anything. When I turned in my bachelor thesis, she straight up said that she is so fucking annoyed that all the students turn their thesis in at her office. Well, we don't have another choice?? There is seriously not other way to turn your thesis in. And don't ever think about asking her anything...

So, I am already looking forward to picking up my bachelors degree (no we don't have a fancy celebration). Normally you would get an e-mail when your degree is ready, but as she fucking hates our guts, you just have to guess when it is ready. We don't get an e-mail. Two weeks after your last grade is put in the system, it is probably ready. So, I did just that. I show up at her office and horay my degreen is ready.

Lady: "Here." (without even looking at me)

Me: "Thank you, I need a certified copy of that."

Lady: (really annoyed): "Excuse me, WHAT?"

Me: "I need a certified copy. Could you please copy it and certify that it is a copy of the original?"

Lady: "I know what a certified copy is! You can get that at the town hall."

Me: "I know, but I can also get it here. I know for a fact that you have to give me one if I request it."

(5-second staring contest ensues)

Lady: "*sigh* FINE!"

She takes my degree back, turns around, copies it and signs that it is a certified copy.

Lady: (hands me the degree and copy) "HERE!"

Me: "Thank you. Now I would like to give you a certified copy of my bachelor degree for my application for the masters degree. (I hand her back the certified copy)."

Lady: "ARE YOU SERIOUS?"

Me: "Yes, I thought if I am already here, I could turn that in as well. So I don't have

Thanks, but I have a Bachelor degree.

Originally posted in r/olderthanyouthinkiam, but I was told this would be appreciated here.

I work at a national coffee chain as a shift leader. Most of us look pretty young, especially with our masks, but I have tattoos that are visible and bright purple hair that scream 20s rebellion.

The other day a customer came through when I was working the drive thru window. His total was $6.34. He gave me $11.35, so I gave him his $5 change. He says, out loud, β€œI’m glad you didn’t get confused by that $11.” I had been waiting for this β€œkids these days...” moment. β€œYeah, I mean I have my bachelor’s in math education, and I’m qualified to teach up through calculus, so I’d hope I’d be okay at subtraction.” Watching the backpedal was GLORIOUS. He tried to say something about the local school with a prestigious engineering program where they couldn’t make change at the concession stand, but I knew that he felt it in his soul and it was amazing.

Edit because people keep asking: YES I KNOW ABOUT THE PENNY. His comment caught me off guard and I missed it at first. I noticed before he left and, although it probably wouldn’t have mattered, I stuck it in the bag with his food. Although I’m considering moving to Canada for the sole purpose of never having to hear about this penny again.

Thank you all so much for sharing your experiences. It seems I’m not the only one who’s gotten this sort of comment, and people are ridiculous. But at the end of the day, we’re lucky to be in a job that lets us go home and forget about it.

I’ve never had a post blow up like this before, and I tried but I can’t respond to every comment. I have a migraine and have to (get to) host my parents since they’re visiting. Most of you are lovely and I appreciate your kind words. I hope you are doing what you love or are working towards that. To all the assholes saying I’m an idiot for working in foodservice when I have a degree: Fuck you, I do what I want. I get paid to hang out with cool kids who teach me TikTok dances while I drink free coffee and eat free donuts (my body is not thrilled, but whatever).

Everyone, have an awesome night/ day/ life. You’re wonderful and I hope life treats you well. And for fuck’s sake, wear a mask.

It was hard fought and won due to family problems. I am so proud of myself. I wonder if the novelty will ever wear off!

I was a single mom of 4 who needed to earn a better living for my kids so I went into healthcare with an associates degree which I’ve had 3.5 years now.

OSRS Fact of the Day: Average time to max is about 2500 hours. The average college student spends 1792 hours studying for a bachelor degree (3.0 GPA)

14 hrs studying/week x 16 weeks/semester x 8 semesters

So does this mean I can add β€œB.S. in OSRS” to my resume?

Edit: A lot of people are saying it takes even longer to max, i.e. 3500hrs. So yeah, basically a master’s degree worth of studying.

Edit 2: including lectures it would be around 3750 hours for the degree.

I finally graduated after years of being called lazy and feeling inadequate. Started college again at 21, and it took me 4 years to complete. But now I finally have a bachelor's degree!

I was always told that I don't put in enough work and that I am lazy. It didn't matter if I was up until 3 am studying, I would still fail or barley pass. I never felt good enough or smart. I honestly thought I'd never graduate, or do any higher education again.

I've tried multiple times to pursue further education, but eventually quit every single time. Even last year, from January until August, I thought about quitting. Thinking I wasn't going to make it and that I was just too dumb was such a regular occurrence throughout my life. Procrastination never got better, I almost didn't finish my thesis in time. Pulling all-nighters just to submit it, never mind the quality. I tried so many methods and tips over the years, but my ability to study never got better. It took me ages to study and I was lucky if I studied my whole subject once, because most of the time I'd barely get to the end of it.

Honestly, I still don't think I can study properly and I'll most likely never be able to. I'm just really glad I made it without quitting, because it really was my final try.

I started college full time at 15 and a few days ago I completed my bachelor's degree at 19 years old. Commencement didn't happen due to COVID and I wanted to share my accomplishment with the world somehow :D

When I was 15 years old I was able to begin attending college full time through a concurrent enrollment program for high schoolers that was offered through the local community college.

When I was 17 I had completed my Associate's degree and I graduated from my High School as Valedictorian.

Now, at 19 years and a little over a month old, I have completed my Bachelors degree (in Economics for anyone curious). I was the youngest graduate this year at my University.

I'm giddy about being graduated and very proud of what I've accomplished. When I began taking college classes four years ago I had never dreamed that I'd be able to complete my degree this young. Thanks to a tremendous amount of support from a lot of loving people who helped me to succeed and who gave me the resources I needed to chase this opportunity I was able to, and now I get to find another adventure!

Not trying to be dramatic but i dont really want to live anymore. If i cant even get a minimum wage job to keep myself alive then im worth nothing.

Graduated with a bachelor degree and now unemployed

I want to express my frustration. 2 years since I graduated with a biology degree (not related to medicine), and I still can't get a job that can compensate for all the efforts that I gave to get a degree. Is biology or really that useless?What am I supposed to do with this piece of paper? I think the only people who is making money in this field are the people who worked as academician. If anyone out there that studied in the same field as me, I really need your advice.

I don't want to go back to university to take master degree because I think it would just make the situation even worse. A master degree won't land you a job in the academic, you need phd for that. I feel like I just wasted years of primary, secondary school, and university just to get to where I don't need all of those to live. It was all a fake promises by parents, teachers and politician saying you will have a better future if you further study. One thing they didn't tell, you could still have miserable life if you chose the wrong field. I feel like I've been scammed. All my friends who went to study engineering, or something related to medicine now have a career with a nice salary. Friends that flunked their PMR and SPM now has a good, stable job that guarantees a job promotion.

I'm not really a lazy and picky about job. After I graduated, I worked in a small cafe as barista, then to a restaurant as kitchen helper, and now I'm unemployed since the MCO. Now I'm back to zero, trying to find a career which related to my degree field, and there are non.

I'm stuck between underqualified and overqualified. The one-step-lower used by the SPA prevented me from applying for a job that I wanted. It was a mistake to put my degree in there in the first place. I should have put SPM first. Not enough professional job out there, even if there are, the competition is so high and the requirement probably exceed my qualification. My pointer wasn't that great and that is my fault. But I just can't comprehend that there is no other way or second chance anymore to make things right (at least thats how I see it). I wanted to be fire fighter, but they won't me because I'm overqualified to start from the bottom.

I just finished my last class in order to complete my bachelors degree in psychology

It took me 6 years. I had to take some breaks, i failed classes, and could only handle taking 4 classes a semester; but i finally finished. Ive been struggling with clinical depression even before i started college and then my ADHD has just seemed to gotten worse in the past 5 years. Ive had a lot of bad things happen to me in the past few years that hindered my progress and made me have to go a lot slower than everyone else around me, but im finally done.

Im so proud of myself and i guess the reason of why im here telling strangers on the internet about it is i just dont think anyone else in my life is going to be as excited for me or realize how big of an accomplishment to me this is. My parents are college graduates; my dad has his masters. My older sister has already graduated and is halfway through her masters program to be a physicians assistant. College just wasnt seen as a big deal in my family. It was also never seen as something that was optional. Im not mad about that though, im really happy my parents stressed the importance and necessity of education. But since getting my bachelors degree has been seen as an expectation, im worried that my family is just going to minimize my accomplishment and chalk it up as me just meeting the expectations they placed on me. I really want them to be proud and excited for me.

Im friends with a of smart people and all of them have already completed their degrees so i feel im just the lame duck that has trailed behind everyone else. None of my friends have clinical depression nor ADHD so i dont expect them to understand how debilitating these things can be in completing things like this.

I dont know if this makes me seem entitled to be complaining about this kind of thing. Im not asking for a parade to be thrown in my honor nor am i fishing for complements. Im just really hoping that when i tell my mom tomorrow, she doesnt respond with something along the lines of "well *finally* you finished" or will cheer for me in a patronizing way.....it just seems like something she would do. I just really want this to be seen as a big accomplishment and not as me just completing the minimum.

thanks for listening reddit, i owe you one.

Update: thank you everyone for your lovely comments, I’ve read every one! I am absolutely floored by how supportive and kind this community is and I appreciate every one of you. A lot of people mentioned that they are struggling to complete their degrees as well and I hope every

Is it worth getting a Master's degree for getting more & higher paying jobs? Also is it possible to do a non-thesis (course related) master's degree immediately after your bachelor's degree?

Hello fellow engineer's, as the economy looks depressing currently (and probably for the next year or two) I am considering continuing on with my education to better set my self up in a position for higher pay and more opportunities when the economy does pick back up. And so here are some general questions I would love to know the answers to:

Do employers really notice the master's degree clout?

How considerable is the average pay increase?

Most importantly is it even possible to enroll into a master's degree program that's only course related and 2 years in length, right after you're bachelor's degree with maybe 1 year of engineering related work experience in you're pocket? From my understanding 2 or 3 year work experience is required or highly recommended dose this mean their are exceptions? If so in what case?

what is a decent paying cushy desk job that you can get with an associates degree or bachelors?

im currently in nursing school. im good with anything medical or numbers but my heart just isnt in it. partly because i have no career passions and really dont care about people. i see work as the means to provide for my family and live the life i want. nothing else. im probably going to finish nursing school just because im almost done already but i dont think im going to want to stay in it. really if i could get a cushy desk job making slightly above the national average id be pretty happy with myself. or maybe not a desk job but something relatively low stress and high job security at a similar wage. shoot any suggestions. just trying to see what options there are.

edit: i guess there are people who think im looking for the perfect job that im going to love and be totally happy with. i never said that. im never going to love any job. i just want something thats tolerable enough to do 40 hours a week then lets me fuck off back home and doesnt require me to destroy my body in the process. i prefer desk jobs just because it saves my body and leaves me energy for exercising which i do very regularly. but id be ok with jobs where i get to move around and do things. point is to not destroy my body. end up having to have knee surgery when im 50 because of years of damage. that kind of stuff. so im open to the idea of trades. my issues with them is that many trades mne/women end up working 60-70+ hours a week and thats not a schedule i want. like i said. do my 40 hours then fuck off back home. perhaps thats not all trade workers and if you have a different experience i would love to hear it. im open to any and all suggestions and i do infact read every single reply.

Then everything changed two years ago and she couldn’t explain why. She has a .5 cm tumor that dr says is responsible for behavioral changes. She only has two years left in her degree but the university put her in probation due to GPA (0.36) and is asking her to reapply. Do you think she still has time to reapply and enroll for this fall semester? Classes begin on Aug. 24 or something like that.

Master’s programs in forestry for someone carrying an unrelated bachelor’s degree

Hi again r/forestry ! I posted about a week ago, I’m a nurse who’s seriously considering a career change into forestry. I didn’t even think it was possible to just do a master’s in forestry to be able to enter the profession, I thought I would be required to do a bachelor’s. What has your guy’s experiences been? Are master’s degrees with a non related bachelors degree looked down upon? Any great online/distance programs? I would love to be able to have it mostly online, so I could work as well, and do internships/research. Also, how would I know if they would fulfill requirements that would be necessary for employment? I’m in CO, I see that CSU has a masters program, but I’m unsure if this is a good background for me given my background.

Meaning, which will offer the most jobs.

Clinical Nutrition

Physical Therapy

Computer Science

Managerial Economics

I would LOVE to do Clinical Nutrition and I have taken all the science courses but I'm afraid there won't be many job opportunities. I do not know if nursing would be a career for me.

To what extent does a Masters Degree help you in your career path over someone who does a Bachelors degree in the UK specifically?

I've read comments saying there isn't much point in getting a Masters degree in the UK as opposed to the EU.

Someone mentioned that finance firms usually reject people outside top 5-10 Universities.

My A-level grades didn't go as planned and I'll be attending a top 50 UK university (Russell Group in London). This just made me want to work hard and dig deeper into a field by doing a Masters at Cambridge or Imperial or UCL.

How much would a Masters degree help someone in the UK? Is it really worth the money?

Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice

For all of you who have graduated with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, what year did you graduate, what was your minor, what is your current job/career, what is your current salary or hourly wage (if you do not mind mentioning it), and do you regret getting a bachelor's degree in criminal justice or was it worthwhile for you?

I will start. I have graduated on August of 2017 with a minor in sociology.

Currently, I work full-time as a field representative for the NJ Department of Labor, Division of Wage and Hour Compliance (part-time as a field supervisor at Allied Universal).

I started my career on August of 2019, and I do like my state government job (not exactly my ideal career, but I like it).

I currently make $50181.91 a year at my state government job, and $15 an hour at my security job.

I have no regrets in getting a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. In fact, I would have never changed my major even if I could go back in time, and choose another major.

The only thing I regret not doing while attending Rutgers-Newark was internships. I should have done internships.

Besides not doing any internships, I regret nothing else. My criminal justice professors were great at both Hudson County Community College (I got my associate's degree at HCCC, and then transferred to Rutgers) and at Rutgers-Newark.

Some sociology professors were not great at Rutgers-Newark, but good thing that I had time to drop the course with them, and only have great sociology professors in the end.

What about the rest of you guys?

I am just curious to know how my fellow graduates of the School of Criminal Justice are doing currently, especially since many individuals love to say how useless it is to get a bachelor's degree in criminal justice because there is no good job prosperity or opportunity with the degree (which I disagree).

Is anyone here a college graduate who then went to community college to get an associate's degree because their bachelor's was useless or for some other reason like a career change?

I'm at that point where my bachelor's degree is worth complete shit and can't get a job for what it was meant for. When I was in college in the early 2000s, I was (and still am) a very type-A personality. Back then, I always had to get straight A's, and I ended up as a summa cum laude graduate with an over 3.9 GPA. However, my college fucked me over royally by failing to tell the students that they couldn't get this special accreditation for my major. So because of that, I could not get licensed in my health care field, I took jobs that were totally beneath my skill level, and the degree became useless. So, after experiencing 10 to 15 years of career floundering and taking odd jobs while going on unemployment four times (most of my money to this very day is from free unemployment money, and it's STILL growing because of the pandemic), I'm deciding to start a new career again and go back to college.

This time, I'm going for a 2-year associate's degree in a trade field that pays average to above average in salary...at least enough to get my own 1 bedroom apartment, which is of paramount importance. I guess you have to go backwards in order to go forwards, as the saying goes. And since I already have a bachelor's degree, I bypass all the prerequisites (thankfully!) AND I really don't even have to worry about getting straight A's anymore since my bachelor's degree GPA is so damn good. All I need are C's to pass the community college courses, and I am in absolutely NO rush to walk out with A's LOL. This actually is such a relief. The fact that all you need to do is pass the courses feels like a tremendous burden has been lifted off my shoulders. Now on the other side of the coin, if I was going to community college in order to transfer to a 4-year college, THEN the pressure to get all A's would be extreme. As I approach 40 years old, I can now relax and be less worried about getting high marks. It's time to start a career and live independently!!!

Is it wrong that I love having a part time, stress-less job, despite having paid for both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree?

I'm 30 years old. The 3 past years, since I've got my degree, I was stuck in a full time job which put a lot of pressure on me (I need to add that I have an autistic disorger (asperger syndrome), so tons of things can make me feel pressured, and stress puts a terrible toll on my mental health), and I hated it, despite the good pay.

I've been doing a part time job since January (I kept working home during the covid-19 pandemic), and I love it: there's meaning in it, I have lots of free time, I live a stress-free life...

Granted, I literally earn two times less than I did before, but I've never been happier in my life.

However, I did go through the hassle of getting a master's degree, and this is the kind of job which will obviously never let me climb the social ladder any further than that, and I can't help thinking that it might not be a good thing...

What do you guys think?

Do hiring managers rule out applicants with no college credentials when the job listing says a bachelors degree requires?

I was vetted or for better words contacted by a recruitment company working for Deutsche Bank.

The position stated that a bachelors degree was a prerequisite and required. I don’t have but 20 credit hours under my belt with a 3.8 GPA, but have two years of relevant experience. The compensation is over $70,000 and year which in my case would be approximately a $15 /hr raise. The role has a lot of duties that I have knowledge of but not vast experience in. I’m confident I would do well in the round of interviews if I can make it past the resume evaluation process. It’s a highly selective position, it operations have been relocated to my region and the staffing agent relayed to me that there is a limited supply of qualified applicants for the role.

Pretty much the title. I love scanning. I love what I do. I just moved to outpatient from a hospital back in February (dodged a bullet with that one). I truly love what I do. But they have every CT in a 20 minute time slot. How am I supposed to get them walk them back change them start an IV run an ISTAT do the scan do my charting get them changed again and walk them back out in 20 goddam minutes. And fuck me if an IV is hard to start or they have to go to the bathroom. 1 patient like that sets me back the entire day and then I’m running my ass off trying to play catch up. Tired of it. Tired of the bullshit. MRI is similar but they have 30 min time slots. I’m over it kinda.

So what can I do with 3 years CT experience, 2.5 years xray experience, and now about 5 months MRI experience. Licensed in all 3. This running around shit constantly being behind never getting to eat (never ate at the hospital either) ain’t for me dawg.

25 years old leading up to three years removed from graduating college with my Bachelor’s Degree, and I can’t find an entry-level position. Advice?

I have a background in sports media that includes experience in broadcasting hockey, soccer, and volleyball, creating TV packages for classes I took at my college, and creating radio features to be used on a sports radio station that carries my college’s football games. I also have a background in sales and retail selling ticket plans and group outings for a minor league baseball team, and selling 100+ phones from a Sam’s Club location in four months until I realized how MLM companies scam their employees.

My dream of working in sports media fizzled when I realized how people in the media industry struggle right off the bat with how little they are paid, and the job security just isn’t there when you see the massive layoffs at companies such as ESPN, The Athletic, and other local news agencies. My minor is in Marketing, but unfortunately, a lot of experience requirements working different versions of software for many marketing positions was not taught to me in my marketing classes at my college. I’ve applied for many entry-level sales positions thinking my background in sales and retail would be more suitable, but I’ve either been passed up, the base salary doesn’t meet my expectations, or I found out doing research that they are a MLM company.

I am at a crossroads where I’m not sure what to do next because I’m tired of being passed on for what feels like 1,000+ applications I have put in. My family has brought up the idea of going back to school to get an Associates Degree in Logistics, but one of the requirements in the course criteria is two Accounting classes and I struggled mightily with Accounting in college having to withdraw from that class. If there’s anyone that has advice for me, I would really appreciate it as I’m really struggling mentally with being underemployed for close to three years and not sure if I’ll ever get an entry-level position.

2nd Bachelor's Degree seeker

Hi all, I need some advice.

I am a 23 yo going back for my second bachelor's degree, a BSN. I just found out that I am not eligible for the PLUS loan for this 20-21 school year, because I'm going to be 24 before the end of the year. This is not something I was ready for, and my semester starts in a week and a half. I've taken the maximum granted by FAFSA in my name, and I'm left with a $6,000 balance for the semester.

Does anyone have any tips for me on going for private loans? Going private for a loan scares me, and I'd love any tips on who to avoid and what I need to look for. I have an almost 800 credit score, but I am unemployed due to this being an accelerated degree. I have a willing co-signer. Thank you in advance.

Unpopular opinion: You shouldn't need a bachelor's degree to be a substitute

My district had a sub shortage before COVID. It was not uncommon for me to just not get a sub when I was out. I would often cover for colleagues during my preps.

People with bachelor's degrees tend not to want to work a shit job for $90 a day and 0 benefits. Why not reduce the requirements to only needing an associate's or just having a certain amount of credits?

We're going to need subs more than ever this fall.

Edit: TIL many states don't require a degree to be a sub.
I agree, the answer to the shortage is to also increase substitute teacher pay.

Is a Bachelors in Biology with a concentration in Bioinformatics an extremely useful degree?

I've been studying Biology throughout my time in university and I'm thinking of making a change. Lately I've been told that the Biology field is too saturated and that I should specialize in a concentrate or change degrees. I think Bioinformatics would be the best concentration since I will not only retain the vast majority of class that I have already taken, but also gain knowledge in computer science and make myself more useful and desirable in the job markets.

However, is this really the case? Finding a job, gaining a upper middle class income by the time I'm 30, and maintaining my employment through numerous recession are my main concerns. At the same time, I don't want to pursue a PhD as of this moment and would prefer to stop at a Bachelors degree since tuition is high. Obviously this is harder without a higher level knowledge in any field, so I wouldn't mind pursuing a Masters degree.

I'm also looking into Biomedical Laboratory and would consider a different Bio concentration as well. All input is welcomed!

Requesting resume review. CCNA, bachelor's degree, 5+ years as Network Analyst/Tech, have been consistently trying to move up to an Admin or Engineer role for the past 2 years with no success.

Hello everyone,

Here is a link to my mock resume - https://imgur.com/a/XL9pDAQ

I graduated with my bachelor's in 2015 and have been working in the networking field since then as an Analyst and, as of 2017, a Technician at a major manufacturing facility.

I obtained my CCNA in 2018. I've been studying for the CCNP off and on since I started working as a tech but I feel like I am not gaining enough experience at my job to really justify the certification. I'd really like to land an Admin or maybe a Jr. Engineer role to gain more experience but I've only been called back for 1 interview for a Network Engineering position in the past 2 years of applying and they were looking for much more experience than I had.

I'm kind of at a loss of what my next steps should be as I feel like I'm stagnating in the role I'm in now with no opportunity in site to move up within my company. I've also been studying for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam as well as learning python on the side as I'm not opposed to pivoting to a cloud role if I can.

Thanks in advance!

My (28M) wife (27F) wants to go back to college and complete her bachelor's degree after finishing her liberal arts AA this past winter. Is it reasonable for me to ask her to pause her education and work?

Details:

My wife and I got married in 2014 and at that time I had already completed my 2 year degree. Although I've changed jobs a few times since 2014, I have been full time employed for the entirety of this time.

When we got married my wife was working full time and continued to do so until the birth of our only daughter in 2016. After this my wife would occasionally work part time jobs for a few months before deciding she didn't like the job and quit to spend more time at home. In 2018 she decided that she needed to go back to school and earn some sort of post highschool degree. From 2018-2020 she worked part time in her school library for about 10 hours per week making just over minimum wage ($7.25/hour).

Since graduating in December she has been staying at home with our now 4 year old daughter to save on daycare costs and to spend more time with her, but with with pre-school beginning soon and kindergarten starting next year having my wife be a stay-at-home parent is no longer necessary.

My wife has decided that once our daughter is in school she will go back to college and complete a bachelor's degree instead of going to work.

Now during this time we've certainly made it through financially, but I think it's fair to say we have struggled to get by at times on mostly my income. Since I'm not looking for financial advice, I'll summarize to say that we can likely continue to get by financially, but the stress of barely making ends meet has become a large strain on our relationship and our family as a whole.

I don't want to crush my wife's dreams of higher education and finding a meaningful career, but the burden of being the sole income for our family is weighing pretty heavily on me and I really want to ask her to pause her education and start working.

Is it a reasonable thing for me to ask her to pause her education and start working possibly making her unhappy/dissatisfied in a crummy job but to improve our family's quality of life? Or should I just let her follow her heart and suck it up? I don't want her to have regrets of not going back and feel angry with me for squashing her dreams.

Bachelor's Degree and A&P Certification, has it helped your career?

Hello all, I hope everyone is doing well and are safe! I had a question for this subreddit. I'm currently a Business Management student at my local university and was experimenting with the idea of getting my A&P certification. I was thinking about going to a local tech school full-time to get my certifications within 12-15 months, while finishing my management degree half time. I have my college degree completely paid for with some grants and scholarships, and I'm halfway done so not completing it seems silly as of right now. The university curriculum is almost entirely virtual with COVID, and will be allowing some flexibility.

So to the career technicians out there, especially the ones with bachelor's, did it reward you in anyway? Has it helped you grow within your career? Do you think it's worth the investment?

Electrical engineering without an ee bachelor's degree

Hi everyone! I'm asking a question for a relative I know who has become passionate about electrical engineering. They are finishing a degree in stats but are now thinking of doing a masters in electrical engineering mostly because they don't want to get a second bachelor's. Is this even possible? Apparently the university the want to go to (University of Alberta) doesn't specifically ask for an engineering degree. How feasible is this? We went through some reddit posts and found people with bio undergrads who did an ee masters but I'm not sure how that would work. If anyone has had any experience with this or has any suggestions, especially for Canada, it would be great to get some advice

Thanks, but I have a Bachelor degree

I work at a national coffee chain as a shift leader. Most of us look pretty young, especially with our masks, but I have tattoos that are visible and bright purple hair that scream 20s rebellion.

The other day a customer came through when I was working the drive thru window. His total was $6.34. He gave me $11.35, so I gave him his $5 change. He says, out loud, β€œI’m glad you didn’t get confused by that $11.” I had been waiting for this β€œkids these days...” moment. β€œYeah, I mean I have my bachelor’s in math education, and I’m qualified to teach up through calculus, so I’d hope I’d be okay at subtraction.” Watching the backpedal was GLORIOUS. He tried to say something about the local school with a prestigious engineering program where they couldn’t make change at the concession stand, but I knew that he felt it in his soul and it was amazing.

Master's degree is the new bachelor's degree. Bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma.

More and more people are getting master's degree these days... I am seeing a lot of employer requiring/ preferring a candidate with a master's degree over a bachelor's degree especially internships and entry level positions.
