The list of the ten worse paying professions to get a degree in was posted online courtesy of HotJobs. Most are no brainers..
9. Fine Arts
8. Hospitality and Tourism
2. Elementary Education
1. Social Work
Education is so bad, they list it twice.
What does this have to do with the government? Many of those jobs are considered growth professions in the new economy by the government. Wow. I would be excited to get out of college.
Also, may of these jobs, like education and social work are generally financed by the government. I don't know if you have read the news lately, but government is not doing too well financially. I don't know if I would risk a four year or longer college education on a losing proposition.
My advice, find something you really want to do. If you want to teach, have at it. But if you are looking for the best paying job, look for ways to work for yourself and not someone else.
Just a suggestion.
