  • Making A Living...

    Hey guys and gals, I was just wondering what everyone does for a living, I'm looking for some ideas, I'm trying to find a career. I don't have a college degree, but am very intelligent and hard working, just won'd really know where to go with it. I scored super high on all academic tests, such as SAT and ACT, just don't like to go to school. So just looking for some ideas and what everyone else does. Thanks guys.

      Finance and computers are always a good way to go, but you would probably need some type of school to back it up, or you could start at the bottom like I did and work your way up. It takes less time if you would go get a degree first.

      Good luck.

        Yeah, it is getting harder and harder to get a decent job with no college degree.

        You could always go in the military bro...it has pro's and con's like anything else...but you can retire at 20 years, get free education, see the world, etc.

        Might get shot at every once in a while, comes with the territory.

          Go to college while you're in, and they will pick up the tab.

            How old are you and what are your interests? WRT school, there is always the online learning environment which you complete the classes at home and/or correspondence courses where you basically read the material and take a proctored exam. Additionally, you can also take CLEP/DANTE exams which allow you to take a test and earn credits toward your degree, which could ultimately cut the time in school half. Many options available today...

            I just spent the last 5 years in the Corps and I received some Tuition Assistance which picked up alot of the costs for classes and I was able to finish while in (although I was half-way done before going in). The military isnt a bad route, but I wouldnt do it just for the sake of completing school as there could be deployments, etc and you might not have the opportunity to do so, depending on your MOS/Job/etc..

              Hi, thanks guys. I'm currently 23, I have a year or so of college, might go back sometime. THe military isn't somtehing I want to do, I've already thought about it. I'd really like to do something with computers or electronics or something along those lines. I'm not sure how to get started in the computer industry, but i'd like some help is available. I learn pretty much everything really fast, and am good with computers. Thanks for your help guys.
