Professors Lie!

I thought my major was supposed to give me hundreds of secure jobs!

However, PayScale’s list of the 8 most secure jobs for 2010 only lists one job that directly fits my major. The list is as follows:

  1. Cardiovascular Technologist
  2. Database Administrator (ME!!)
  3. Personal Trainer
  4. Interior Designer
  5. Dental Hygienist
  6. Paralegal or Legal Assistant
  7. Water Treatment Plant System Operator (ugh stinky)
  8. Occupational Therapy Assistant

As it turns out, the number one job only requires a 2 year associate degree. Yet I’m in school for 4 years! But actually, I don’t mind. That 2 year associate degree probably ONLY fits that one specific job title. At least as a computer science major, I can be suitable for numerous (maybe even hundreds of) jobs. Aren’t you a little jealous?

I would be.
