Would you like hockey pads with that?

Drunk Guy #1: Do you still go to Western?
Drunk Guy #2: (proudly) Nope, I got a degree. In History.
Drunk Guy #1: So, where do you work?
Drunk Guy #2: SportChek.

Oh good... a post that specifically asks people to start the 'your faculty is stupid' war. Let the hilarity begin!

I love the current job market.

Spend 20k on your education, only to work at some utterly unrelated "profession" when you get out.

As for faculty wars... to be honest, there are only a handful of degrees offered that guarentee you'll work in the field you want when you graduate. The other 90% are hit-and-miss.

I did try it. Then I tried a post-grad at Fanshawe cuz my degree was useless. I readily admit that though (hail fellow English students).

Anonymous #3 is right, kids. Barring much luck or your own exceptional skillz, odds are your degree is going to be a fine placement one day.
