My degree was in Math/Physics. I got a couple tutoring gigs here and there by mentioning my degree, but nothing that would even pay my student loan payments. Like every student, my counselor told me my degree would open every door and make me filthy rich; it didn't. (I never really thought it would, but I expected a lot more than what I got.) The only reason I went to college, working two jobs every day just to pay for it, was so I would get a better job when it was done. Since getting my degree, my income has dropped by a third. As I mentioned above, I'm just going to start my own business, but it shouldn't be this way for me and my peers; we did the work, paid our dues, and there was no job at the end of the tunnel.
