Discussed on Twitter a month and a half ago, GWJ Useless Degree Club is a group for those of us who have a degree (Bachelor's/Master's/Doctorate) in something that, honestly, isn't going to get us a job anywhere outside of academia. I'll start.
My name is Prederick, and I'm a Literature major from a school in the SUNY system. I'm incredibly happy to have a job with a local news company, and came to understand that my middling degree with a middling GPA was basically worth about as much as a wet fart, in the grand scheme of things. My primary marketable skills are my voice, and my writing, although only the latter is something I can definitely prove.
Do you have a useless degree? Sign up for the GWJ Useless Degree Club! This thread is a place for those of us with worthless degrees to come together and gripe about the thousands of dollars we'll be repaying to get a degree that means absolutely nothing in the professional world. Liberal Arts majors are basically instant-inductions.
