    I think Redruff is on to something. Welders here make a ton of money. Its Mon-frid work and very low stress compared to teaching or medicine. Trades are nothing to scoff at.

    I agree, but in order to be successful, you may have to do away with any integrity you might possess and become as self serving as possible.

    You should be looking at doing internships for your options, it's a great way to learn if something could be a fit.

    You also need to think about what suits you. My degree was in industrial management. I started out as a shift super and worked my way to production manager.....and hated it. I got into industrial sales and it fit. I have been in pharma and now med sales for 8 years and I love it. I just can't stand being in one place all day. Now I cover 2 states so you better like the car....

    Pharmacist, job security and very good pay. Stay away from the Public sector and stick to the private sector.

    One step ahead of you!!
    SALES is where it is at. I left my job in construction and took a job in sales and tripled my annual incom in back to back years. I made 6 years worth of construction wages in 2. Saved a bunch of money and left sales and opened my own business and have not looked back. Everyone I know that has top sales skills is NOT hurting for cash. It takes a certain breed to not hear no....but sales is where high salaries with a lot of free time meet!!!!

    You also may want to look into a Safety degree, there will always be a need for safety specialists, and the pay is beyond AMAZING! It's not all that hard to deal with either, you get a fatality rarely but it happens, and if your one us who "wants to make a difference every day" it's a great career choice. We try to keep people as safe as we can, and abide by OSHA rules and such. Pm me if you'd like some advice!
