Worthless Degree Awareness Month

June has been declared "Worthless Degree Awareness Month".  As your kids, grandkids, neighbor's kids, etc graduate and head off to college, now would be the perfect time to point out that racking up over $100,000 in debt for a degree that doesn't qualify you to run the fry machine at McDonald's is probably not a great career move.  Instead, take a couple years to figure out what kind of job you want, and what kind of experience or training will help you get that job.  By the time your friend graduates from college with a worthless degree you will have four years of experience.

Oh, and buy Worthless by Aaron Clarey.  He says the same thing, only with charts and statistics.  So it's better.
