A question for anyone at university, or has left uni

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Will doing a Maths & Economics degree at university actually improve my employability, and am I likely to get a better job with better prospects from it? These days it seems people would be better off just getting work experience and learning how to do the job, rather than studying the field around it.

    Doing a degree will increase your employability in certain areas of work, because it shows various things about your character. Something like maths can be used as a foundation for lots of careers. It wouldn't necessarily get you in at a high level to jobs but I reckon some jobs would expect you to have a degree.

    mate, no-one here, anywhere else, living or dead, is ever going to believe that you are more qualified than we are until you stop acting like such a dick.

    I don't think it matters what qualifications I have, as whether you have more than me or not, I clearly appear to have a better grasp of usiong the English language than you.

    And no, I don't get you, really, as you don't talk properly.

    You'll be getting nothing talking like that, nothing with a brain cell of it's own, at least, not until you get it pregnant.

    it could still be anybody's. If you had half a braincell of your own you'd know that.

    You have clearly not realised that talking properly and talking how you want are not the same thing.
