then left to take an 80k job, plush office, plenty of space, treated well, but no social life, so she left after a year and a half and went back to school. She's very sharp, she just did'nt pay attention to the job market.
Every job he's had so far job so far was because of his Navy training. His youngest brother just got a great job and they didn't want to know what his degree was. They were impressed that he made E5 at 20 yrs old.

N....an education and a metrocard will get you on the subway..my education HAS NEVER GOTTEN ME A JOB! NEVER..UNLESS YOU ARE IN A SPECIFIC SCIENCE I.E ENGINEERING OR MEDICINE, ITS A WASTE OF MONEY IMHO.
There are jobs in the building maintenance field..basically apartment "supers" requiring a BA in civil or mechanical engineering. Its absolute horsepucky to demand that from a guy who has to fix some plumbing, reset circuit breakers and fix some squeaky stairs; but there are so many college grads looking for work that this is rapidly becoming a standard. Total nonsense.

Even welding takes skill sets that vary from one to another person. Welding under water for instance. Guys who weld steel very well often cannot weld aluminum without more training. Be nice to hire an alum welder if your company produces alum prods.
As for leaving info out...I was doing mid-level tech work for USGS. After I got my graduate degree they could no longer hire me. Said my degree required a different pay grade and they could not afford me. I asked if we could just ignore the degree and use me as before. They couldn't. Its hard to hide three-four years of study. The gap shows up and employers ask about it.
Those who can, "do", then they retire from "doing" and "teach".
Best HS teachers and college profs I have had all started as doers in the real world. Came to teaching after leaving their jobs.
The benefit of "doing" first is frame of reference for "teaching".
I was teaching at the same time I was doing. Very focused undergraduate programs: "Herpetology" and "Environmental Monitoring and Biological Assessment". 90% of the students were dolts, more interested in traveling 3 hours for a weekend party than in getting up early enough to make my class.
Turned down an offer to teach full-time. I am not cut out for daily disappointment seeing my efforts vaporize at the sound of the bell.
Like all those late-night infomercials, on how to make millions fast in real estate, stocks, etc. You have to ask yourself - if you had the secret to making millions so easy, why would you go to all the trouble to set up a selling network to SELL someone else your secrets??? Why not just do it yourself?? duhhhh

Now that is what I call a focused person. I helped her with the funds and was honored to do it.
She is an exnun and I am so very proud of her.
The entire family is so very bright, and foxy too.
