A degree means nothing....
I've been reading and see more and more individuals complaining about their peers who possess no college degree, who coincidentally, have experienced growth with a company. Let me be the first to let you know that degrees mean absolutely nothing... ...well, nothing that is, unless you put it to good use to benefit those around you (and how I wish more companies would see this). This could mean providing services to others, utilizing your educational background to increase revenue, etc. I would much rather hire an associate without a degree, who has contributed more to the growth and success of others than someone with a degree with no relevant proof of fortitude and passion. If you're flashing your education around, I challenge you today. Other than complete the required courses to obtain your degree, what has been your contribution? What truly, have you accomplished prior to obtaining a high level position to prove to the world that you deserve it? And to those who have no degree, what has been your contribution? I hope not complaining. That is much time wasted where you could be utilizing your skills to show others you stand out above the rest...even the well-educated. As for me, you may be asking (and quite possibly, judging). Yes, I made my contributions. I have always possessed the passion to serve others first as Christ did. And only before having the passion to obtain any degree. I'm 29, have a Ph.D. and will continue to serve others first. My opinion though, is that degrees mean absolutely nothing until you utilize your talents for those around you. As far as the good books...go ahead and read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. This is for everyone.
Helping others to help themselves
My dream job is being able to help people that have disabilities, and is not able to do things for themselves, also being there when they need someone to talk to, having someone they can share their thoughts and feelings with.
