Accurate for...?

Becoming wealthy? No

Becoming employable? Yes.

A chart for becoming wealthy would have law, finance and accounting at the top.

law really?

of course. The CEO of GS started as a fucking attorney. Good lawyers make fucking bank and possess extremely important knowledge for any corporation or affluent families. Plenty of executives are trained as lawyers or accountants. How does this come as a surprise?

Nicememe, but if you don't already have connections or the ability to forge favor networks, you run a 99.9% chance ending up in shitlaw making sub 70k instead of in the big boy zone.

There's a major investment firm that only employs mathematicians, statisticians and similar.

I think it's the firm from the billionaire numberphile did a video with (who is also a mathematician obv)

Employing STEMfags in a financial setting didn't work the first time

That being said, don't math/physics people get employed as Quants?

Skills are worth as much as you can sell them for a feminist can sell her bs book and get a million. On the other hand in my uni the secretary had a PhD in mathematics.

Is that supposed to be impressive? Working for the government is a terrible idea.

It's a garbage list for STEM idiots. If you want to make money you don't major in fucking physics or any other pure science.

inb4 investment banker physicists

This is literally one in a million. Major in accounting or finance if you want to have a fucking clue about business.

What? You mean working for the largest employer in the USA, one which has comparatively more funding than any other employer on the planet, is a bad idea?

I enjoy a paid vacation, healthcare, 2 hour lunch break, and incredible job security. What are you talking about?

What do you do in pharmacy? Memorize chemicals and what they do? Create new ones? pls elaborate user

Pharmacy school is very different from working as a pharmacist. Honestly I don't know why they require 4-6 years of school, someone trained for a few month or so would be able to do this job. You pretty much learn basic medical stuff with only a very minor amount of time spent on diagnosis. Pharmacy practice is like working at McDonalds but instead of food you give out drugs.

capital tends to produce actual returns of 4-5%, beating inflation by 1% sustainably is doing well so you should be glad

top investment priority is avoiding loss which is tough to recover from

trees don’t develop to the sky, it's purely arithmetical; business that outperform the financial system as a whole sooner or later converge to correlated GDP rates. nothing can maintain growth at meaningfully higher rates than the GDP all the time

it refers mostly to the dificulty of the degree, so yes it is accurate measuring that. it is accurate if we're talking about getting employed with relatively high salary since a harder degree will show to an emplyer that you're smart enough handle what they're throwing at you despite your different background. you'll also need a good gpa. you should probably stick to what you've learned in college when looking for a job but if you're available don't pass up good opportunities

Under Shillary I would put LCSW up in top tier.

They can make 100,000 a year, with 5 star benefits, super chill job.
