Frankly, no degree will get you into working in mcdonalds for the rest of your life, the people who will do, are the one's who left with no qualifications

Some of the degrees on the list make sense but I would be more interested in finding out exactly how the list is composed and how large the survey was.

In reality in a lot of cases it's much more weighted towards experience than degree subject.
True, but they're not mutually exclusive though.

Well that's a list on a website that I've never heard of. It doesn't even say what positions at McDonalds it could be CEO for all we know.

Have you seen this?
What do you think?
I definitely don't agree with psychology, since I've been told that right now the numbers of (specifically educational) psychs is dropping.

Is your degree/hopeful degree up there?

The list is flawed, how can nursing can be there, everyone that I know that studied nursing get jobs pretty quickly in their field.

You can study anything and get a decent job if you are willing to be persistent, focused and determined to succeed .

What's wrong with that? Are you implying it's a bad idea to consider the career you'll hold for the next forty years and earning potential etcetera when choosing your degree, even if it means undertaking something you won't particularly enjoy? Seems rather short sighted.
A lot of the degrees listed are still required if you want to work in that specific field, whether or not there are many jobs in that sector.
I would rather do a job I enjoy (considering you will be doing it for a very long time) and get less money then do a degree and a job I don't like just so there is a possibility to earn more money.

I can't see why people rather earn more than be happy, isn't the whole point of earning money is so that you can be happy. Either way, you will have to work hard, but working hard is so much easier when you are doing something you enjoy.

This is all very nice, but a completely different point to the one you originally made;

"So you are telling me you would rather do a degree you don't enjoy so you have a higher chance of getting a job then one you do enjoy because it might not lead to a job?"

But the "might" is very important. Any degree can lead to success. Therefore the 2 points are relevant.

Yes. The "might" is important. You seem to only be considering one side of that equation

Nursing?! There's a shortage of people studying Nursing and a shortage of Nurses - I highly doubt a trained nurse could end up working anywhere other than as a nurse, unless they didn't want to.

Chance is an interesting concept... Imagine picking a degree you don't enjoy for higher chance of a decent job and still not getting one. I would say that doing a degree you enjoy will make you a more motivated person and even if you don't end up getting the best job straight after the degree, life is all about risks and it doesn't mean the end of the world.

I never understand why working in McDonalds is some horrific fate. Working there and paying your way is 10x better than signing on. If we got rid of attitudes like that we'd have less people sucking on the tit of the state while "holding out for their dream job".

Funnily enough they probably value their staff more than a lot of other places too.. I worked there and I was allowed a shed load of food, you get discount cards and because I'm disabled I was allowed more breaks (basically whenever I needed them) where I could again have food and drink and generally just replenish myself for the rest of my shift
Really flexible with hours too!
Highly recommend them tbqh!

The point is more flippin' burgers isn't a grad level thing.

I don't thinkt he hating is for their grad scheme, or their product, or even Ronald McDonald.

The states return on investment doesn't come from grabbing onto the first crappy job to take you and under earning for the rest of your life.

Its 100x better for the state in the very short term yes, but as long as its likely they are able to get a significantly better job then its a poor choice.

Oh snap! :ahee:
Did Google Chrome break again? :ahee:

I guess any degree in a soft subject, or one that's not in demand. Stuff like a degree in Medieval Russian History or whatever...
