Businesses hire college grads based on the level of the degree. Most businesses require a minimum of a bachelor's degree, which means the hiree doesn't know how to do anything, but he/she has indicated a work ethic and a willingness to learn.College Education Is a Fraud and Should Not Be Rewarded
This thread is an example of Begging the Question, which the ambitious imbeciles who graduate from college think means, "Which leads to the question." The few truly educated people, who have not been dumbed down by the fraud of the present college education, knows it means basing a discussion on a false assumption, so that whatever conclusions are reached are unrealistic, no matter how logical they sound.
The present indentured servitude of college education must be replaced by paid professional education. Whether tuition is paid for or left up to the student and his parents limits the discussion by omitting the fact that schoolwork is work and it is work without pay. That is an insult to intelligence and fails to motivate talent. It attracts no-talent brown-noses who can't do the jobs they are hired for. They only know "how to do" the job, just like most American boys know how to play baseball but can't even make their High-school teams.
Thinking that sacrifice has merit is a self-serving lie preached by economic bullies. College life is childish, depressing, and humiliating. No one is allowed to even realize that all work should be paid for as it is worked, not four or ten years later. It's the same as telling construction workers, "This building will take a year to build. You won't get paid until it is finished."
The reward of this kind of ambition is not worth the sacrifice. It is unmanly, which is the real but never mentioned reason why the majority of college students today are female. And the majority of graduate students are foreigners, because indentured servitude is totally unAmerican.
College should not be a choice; making it so is another false assumption. College students must be chosen, recruited by firms or corporations and paid up front, just like baseball players at that age are giving a signing bonus to put themselves through baseball's equivalent of college education. What kind of talent would be lost to baseball if the superior athletes were expected to pay the minor league teams for their training and get by on low-paying off-season jobs? People are so brainwashed they don't realize that the result of this obsolete and dysfunctional institution has put inferior people in superior positions and is the chief cause of our economic failures.
A Masters Degree pretty much means the hiree is supposed to know how to do it.
Companies require a degree as minimum evidence of discipline on the part of the hiree.
Most college grads who were smart enough to choose majors that were marketable, are working and quietly paying off their student loans. Or the loans have already been paid off. Or there is very little debt because of full boat scholarships.
The IDIOTS rack up THOUSANDS in debt and whine and moan that their Sociology or Lesbian Dance Theory degree didn't get them immediately hired at six figures. And bottom feeders like Democrat Underground and Occupy Wall Street put this idiot up front.
