A review of degrees earned by students over the past decade shows that the most useless and regretted major is that of journalism.
Now that, right there, is hilarious.
Per The Blaze:
Tens of millions of young Americans owe trillions of dollars in debt they incurred for the sake of college degrees, not all of which were created equal. A new survey published by the American employment marketplace ZipRecruiter has provided a valuable insight into the perceived uselessness of certain college degrees, the most regretted of which is a journalism major.
The latest ZipRecruiter Job Seeker Confidence Survey conducted by Qualtrics surveyed 1,500 job seekers between Oct. 10 and Oct. 16. It found that job seekers are “feeling less confident in their ability to find a job quickly.”
Confidence was highest for black respondents and lowest for white and Asian respondents.
Job seekers cited a number of barriers to securing employment, including being perceived as too old; lacking the right work experience; lacking transportation; and lacking a professional network. And 20% of respondents indicated they lacked the right education.
On the basis of the survey results, CNBC reported that 44% of all job seekers with college degrees regret their fields of study.
“Those most stricken with regret were graduates who majored in journalism, 87% of whom indicated they would choose another major if they could,” The Blaze added.
Of course, the truth is, journalism is not the cash cow for employees that it was in the 1980s and previous eras.
The Internet has pretty much gutted journalism. But so has the ideological left-wingery that the profession has fallen victim to.
Journalists have worse reputations than used car sellers.
These young people are fooled into thinking journalists are “changing the world,” but when they graduate, they find out they will have no individual power and won’t make much money doing it. And they wish they never bothered.
That, right there, is hilarious.Commentary
