    of course the higher paying careers are in areas I am not strong at, like math and science and finance. i am getting into my teaching career and I know my dreams definitely won't come true

    Some of us don't give a fuck. I have 2 college degrees and refuse to use either one for personal reasons. I will never accept any job that requires a degree. I'm all about naked options trading. People don't like it because it involves so much risk but what they don't understand is that all of life is a gamble. Everytime you get behind the wheel of a car you're gambling on possibly having a wreck. Everytime you go out in public you gamble on being shot. To work a job is to gamble on getting fired and it really doesn't matter if you're good at your job. They could always turn against you for some stupid reason. If you think you're safer by avoiding the stock market think again. All of life is a gamble. Fuck college. Fuck all jobs - including the so-called 'good' jobs. Options trading is the way to go. For me, it's the only way. I have unlimited profit potential, etc. I always rufused to kiss ass to get ahead. I don't value social status. I'm not into any of that. So, if you don't kiss ass to get ahead or use a college degree there's only one option left for success - you have to become good at taking calculated risks. That's what I did. If it weren't for options trading, I'd probably be driving an 18 wheeler and I'd be perfectly fine with that. I could have $100 million laying around and live in a double-wide. It's not about life-style - it's about money for the sake of money. Fuck the world.

    This list is terrible.
    *More Accurate (According to Indeed):*
    1. Dentistry
    2. Medicine
    3. Computer Science
    4. Nursing/PA
    5. Finance
    Engineering, Law, and Pharmacy are stagnating. Software is taking over the world but the bottom fringes may be susceptible to automation. A.I. and Data Science may disrupt all the other fields that have security at this time except for those with human interaction (i.e. nursing and physical therapy).
    The only college professors being hired these days are for Healthcare and Business. Even computer science taught at universities isn't hiring as much, I assume because one can learn programming on their own.
    I predict that the massive growth in software and A.I. will extend to other engineering fields and medicine revolutionizing their knowledge base and expanding on their capabilities. I think new industries in genetic and technologic body modification will become a thing. And I also believe aerospace engineering will be in great demand for astronautic engineers to work on spacecraft for new ventures off-planet.

      @SHAV THE NAILER Petroleum should be good until newer energy rockets because of innovation. But even then, the conservative projection is that newer energy will only make up 4-8% of the world's energy by 2040 unless some massive breakthrough renders gas and oil as prohibitively useless.

      @Patrick Ramsey when did I ever bring up Steve Jobs or Bill Gates and what gives you a say on whether or not that I do know people in my personal life who have dropped out of college and make good $$?? I know a few people who are doing well for themselves, and people who have college degrees and aren't doing shit. I'm working on my degree right now because i know it will give me more worth later in life at some point.

      @Isaias Martinez Jr well first 2 years were based on math, phisics, mechanics, tolerances and so on... 3 and 4 were the most interesting because we had to do projects in CAD programs such as Catia or Solidworks. Btw I specialised in Industrial Design. It is worth it, but only if the field really interest you, not only the money.

    • Vitor Rocha
      Vitor Rocha 2 months ago +1

      @maestro awesome Thats subjective. Personally I think soccer is the best sport in the world and its so fun to play. However, here in America most people think it's super boring. So the best answer I can give you is do your research and see how you feel about it. Some colleges and university even offer financial planning ''summer camps'' for high school students like yourself to learn more about finances and maybe spark an interest in the career. I actually went to college to study personal financial planning, which is essentially a more specific degree compared to just finance. My experience in school was awesome, all of my classmates were really smart and very helpful, so were all of my professors. I started my financial planning job on June of this year and so far I've really been enjoying it.
      If you are planning on going into a career based on the pay, then don't even bother looking at this industry. Not because the pay isn't good, cause it is. By your 5th or 6th year, you should be making around 6 figures, whereas in any other regular 9-5 you'll be getting a raise from $75 to $78k. Financial planning is never about the amount of money YOU will make, its about the amount of money you will save/invest for your CLIENT. Your money will simply be a reflect of your work towards your clients.

      @Vitor Rocha is it a fun job? i'm considering studying finance in college, so it would be much appreciated if you tell me your experience.

      Ps: is the pay good

    • Vitor Rocha
      Vitor Rocha 2 months ago

      maestro awesome kind of, it depends on a few different factors such as the firm you end up working at, what role you have, the office culture and etc. In the beginning it’s pretty much like that. You start by studying and getting licensed. Once you get licensed you start marketing and arranging meetings with clients. After about 5 years or so, you should be able to set your own schedule. A lot of advisors, one of my coworkers for example, don’t ever come to the office and just handle business at home over the phone. Other people just work better in the office and have their local clients come into the office as well. It all depends.

    If you want the most valuable bang for you buck degree, I Definitely recommend cyber security. It’s a very easy degree and there is a shortage so there are jobs available everywhere. I have 1 year left before I graduate and I’m already getting job offers. My friends in the field get paid over $80k in entry level positions. After experience you are easily looking at 6 figures.

    1: Their college system so you no longer go into as much debt and have to repay it for your entire life.
    2: Healthcare more specifically slag it and redesign it from the waiting room up so you can actually afford it like what Obamacare was supposed to do.
    3: Your police department more specifically just stop being excessively brutal keep the guns they are for the officer's safety but tone it down precision pistols and perhaps rifles can do the job
