A degree is never worthless.
Haven't you heard for decades now, how college grads ended up washing dishes, etc. or had to go into fields not requiring degrees? That's what I've heard.
A degree can prove to a future employer that you can learn, you want to learn and are disciplined enough to achieve a goal. I have a degree in communications, concentrating on film/radio/tv. I wanted to do something in the film industry.
I've been with the global billion dollar company that I work for now for going on 22 years. I started at a low entry level in sales support, spent time in purchasing and am now responsible for our global IT solutions for our purchasing organization. I pick the solutions, my team develops and supports those solutions. And I am compensated pretty well for it.
All of which have zip to do with the A I got in my radio broadcast class.
I do realize the job market is markedly different from when I entered Corporate America. I truly do.
My point is, a degree can help open the door to some pretty big opportunities that are there for those with a degree. Regardless of what discipline is printed on it.
Good luck to you OP.
