Many people finish college and never find a job in the field of study. I am not talking about someone that hasn't actively searched. Do you think college was worth it after having to accept a job that wasn't your field of study? I ask this because there wasan interesting story on Dateline about this. I wanted to know your opinion.Answer Question

That's why when you select a field of study, you really need to think about what you will actually do with that degree, and what the average pay is for an entry level position in that field! What does one do with a degree in Political Science versus an undergraduate degree in a medical field? Granted, not everyone can become a doctor, but there are far too many "fluffy" degrees out there that look and sound nice, but don't actually net you anything.
Degrees that will land you in a "people service" field...hotel/restaurant management, business, teaching, medicine, physical/occupational therapy (and related health sciences), law/legal, social work/psychology, etc., are pretty much guaranteed fields in which you will be able to secure a job, because they are NEEDED.
