You guys really think that Social Media is not an important avenue for advertising, community outreach, and publicity? Just how old are you? 80?

Magnus: fireclown: Magnus: fireclown: Are we counting my MBA?  I'm not seeing a lot of benefit out of it other than my folks being delighted that I finally finished some kind of grad school.

Community College MBA doesn't really count as an MBA.

Well, it's still better than U Of Phoenix.


ha.  true.

My dad wanted me to look into UoP when I was looking at B-schools.  I just couldn't break his heart by telling him what a foolish waste of time and money that would have been.

I've watched some friends poor  pour $80k (or borrow rather) into tier 3 B-schools and Law Schools.  I just shake my head watching this scam going on.  I'm sorry, but MBA from Obscure State University is not going to get you a $200k a year job, folks.  It will get you in debt and make you over-qualified for supervisor of the lunch shift at the Piccadilly.  Not everyone needs a college degree or graduate degree.  Don't poor your money into Masters of Social Media degrees or undergrads from some stripmall U.  Either go to a very good school to get a useful and valuable education or go to a trade school or OJT the hell out of yourself.

Whatever you do, do it exceptionally well or just lower your freaking expectations about what you will be able to achieve in life.  Realism can be a real biatch for those not prepared.

Ha.  How appropriate of a spelling failure.

It's not a meritocracy, people.
