Feb 27th 2010 2:20PM It was a very misleading headline and I'm not sure what the purpose was. I spent several years and thousands of dollars getting a liberal arts degree back in the 80s when the philosophy was "an employer is looking for someone with a well-rounded background." Now 42, unemployed, and in default on my student loans which are increasing exponentially due to ridiculous amounts of interest/fees/penalties - another topic for another blog - I feel like it was all a big waste! I have yet to have a job where I needed my degree...restaurant, bar, retail management. I worked my way up from the bottom too. Sadly to say, I will not push college on my kids unless they are going into something specific, such as engineering, architecture, accounting, or dare I say at this point...medicine?
