Degreed And Jobless, College Graduate Turns To Stripping

news report:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hinN9gTV ... r_embedded

After graduating from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Carrianne Howard hoped to find a job in the video game industry.

She did -- kind of. For $12 an hour, she worked as a recruiter for video game companies. And then her position was eliminated. So now, she's working as a stripper.

really has less to do with a degree, or stripping and more to do with for-profit degree's and the dishonesty they present to its recipients.

I'm tired of this for profit university bashing.
1. There are plenty of public and private university grads with sh-t jobs
2. Many are unemployed on average as many as 15% from my program go unemployed and another 50% are underemployed working jobs they are over qualified for or do not want to be in
3. colleges are not mean to prepare people for work, the professors only care about their research and lecturing is like a side job to them
4. It is the career centres who find jobs and $12 an hour is not great but there are plenty of grads from top schools earning that kind of money in canada.

This woman must be ********... She graduated with a art degree from the "Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale" and is shocked, SHOCKED to find that she cant get a job doing art.

Solution is simple, these worthless degrees should be listed under a separate heading of "For fun only" so these idiots won't be blindsided by finding out they can't actually do anything with them.

I personally think the govt aren't ready with the change in employment through out the decades.

Gov't need to lay grounds on more infrastructure to regulate employment policy.

Of course, you have some master taking a high school requirement job, then leave after 3 month. Guess what, because of that the firm that hire these MA will now spent another extra 2 month just to find a proper personal for the position. I am saying without facts but this is very well known case. If my example present what the world is now then you can imagine for every 9 month work, the firm lost 6 months in search cost.

Not to mention training cost. The whole reason lies in because potential employee can omit/lie about their education/experiences while employer only looking to fill base on willingness and with little to no information available to them.

While these "business" colleges out there trying to trick you into study something quick and kick you out there. It really say little in your resume what they do as employer have no information about them.

That is why gov't regulation is require because our employment needs had changed from last decade. Especially with all these mix of eduction and experience going on.

On the topic: Stripper is base on your age, she can work on it for next 4-5 years but when she turns 35+, she will be kick out of the stripper business. I think she is an idiot trying to join gaming industry on the other hand.

Most of these private "colleges" should be shut down and banned. Atleast until proper oversight/regulations/standards can be established.

Problem lies with companies.
Time to regulate profits vs. employee salary.

If the company can record xM profit, a huge portion of that should be deferred back to employees in the form of bonuses.

Oh, but shareholders don't agree with real profit sharing, only the type of profit sharing where employees receive pennies on the dollar of what the collective rake is.

And why should we listen to anything you have to say about careers or business? What work experience do you have to make this claim, or any other that you've made about the work world?

Why?

People know it's of lower quality compared to the more established schools. Are you telling me someone would rather go there than Harvard? Obviously if they had better choices then they wouldn't have gone to for-profit schools.

Also, the for-profit high schools in the US are some of the best in the country. A lot of them are feeder schools for the Ivy Leagues. Eventually, competition will force the for-profit colleges to increase their teaching standards.
