Forum Post: Ok, so here is what I am confused about

you have people going on about how much they are in debt from student loans and how corporal justice is needed because there is no Jobs that is in their field of study and they will have to sell drugs or prostitution or something retarded like that just to pay back their loan that they say will be impossible to pay that back. Now here is what i am confused about, if there is no Jobs in their field of study, then WHY did they go to school for that field. You choose your field of study so therefore, you chose to be unable to get a job in your field. So why are you blaming someone else for your own mistake?

the real problem is who can you trust? even if a student investigates going into a career, can he trust the numbers are tainted by some lobbying sponsor? Honestly i dont trust any person farther than I could throw you. Just look at all the b.s. advertising on television, and the internet, free this, and free that, its all lies. Shame on capitalists that think throwing morals out the door will result in more sales. Im one of those people who will not ever do business with a product or service that lies for a living. Period.

thats why you don't look at the sponsors, you actually go, physically look at your area and think to yourself, is there any potential? Example I will use is my sister in law (not saying that she blames others for it), she did her Masters working in aquaculture, she lives an hours drive from the nearest ocean or large body of water, the only actual place to get a job in the field would be the school, not a lot of opportunity, even if they were advertising you should think to yourself what kind of competition you would be at for a place where there is only one single place that may hire you. Fortunately for her she knew that she was moving to that place an hour away, but for those who don't think, really they have no right to complain.

fact is noone cares, noone would want to show another individual how to get ahead, in a career or anyother way. Why even in my own family, I asked someone who wasnt intelligent enough to see that I was approaching 50 and had never bought my first home, she had just purchased a really nice home, and though it was a pleasure for me to come and look at it, years later, it still rings in my ears, the old brainwashing and pitting of the 99 % against eachother in her response to me asking how she was able to purchase it, "I prefer to keep my finances private".

No one reason for it. Some fields change in the four years you're in school. Some kids thought all you needed was a diploma in anything from a big name school. Some kids are just that, kids, they don't think that far ahead took dumb majors and didn't research what companies wanted. Some kids are stuck on their own with parents that won't or can't help. Blaming someone else for your problem is kinda human nature, even if you made the problem yourself.

Well Jen down bellow is right but I think there is a little added factor of self entitlement going on here. It's always someone else's fault when something goes wrong.
