NOTE: i have a good site to share in this entry if you want to look for a new career path... but its at the end so read away
some girl said she was in nuclear medicine recently.. she was 29 and said she had been doing it for 9 years
this sparked my interest so i looked it up
it said all u need is an associate's degree in the field and you make around $65,000/yr
here's what i have to say about that:
she has been making over $60,000/yr on a 2-yr education since age 20 simply because she knew about a good and easy career path
this reiterated to me something i've always known...
school doesn't really teach you jack sh*t.
when i was in high school i was learning about imaginary numbers, and doing geometry problems with polygons, and reading mary shelley's frankenstein.. just overall doing dumb sh*t that means nothing
why should anyone know what the pythagorean theorem is if they can't balance a checkbook? in other words, high school doesn't teach you things of value such as WHAT CAREERS ARE LUCRATIVE AND EASILY ATTAINABLE
i don't know how this chick even knew about nuclear medicine when she was 18 but apparently she got right in there and never looked back.. she owns her own home and everything.. there are people who would do anything for that type of ease and stability!
why didn't school spend time teaching us about the available career paths? especially these 2-yr 'get-in-and-get-out' jobs that lead to good money?
i mean.. after hearing about this chick, doesn't it make you want to see what's out there?
if you said yes..
i literally just found this site tonight
it has a lot of information on careers in and around america
check it out
in my short time on it, i've found that if you go to "publications" then go to "occupational handbook" you can really get a lot of important information on whatever career you might be thinking about
just wanted to share that with anyone who may be close to graduation, or anyone who may want to look for a new career, or anyone who needs a change.. hopefully this entry helps someone out.. this site seems to be the thing a lot of us need
knowledge is power..........
