Same thing happened to me at a popular chain restaurant and even a fast food joint. You get through the application process, and then when you get the interview, they hanđ you the questionaire shéet.

The problem is, is that even though there is that header of 'answer each question truthfully', and you dont answer according to 'standards' you
re passed over. And this is just to serve food!

College Education is useful only for those who actually want to learn something and improve their existing skills. For example you can't be a computer programmer unless that is your hobby - no matter how many pieces of paper you get. So before starting make sure you have a real need for that piece of paper and a real skill that will pay for those loans when you're done!

The issue with US college education is that for-profit colleges were allowed to bend over anybody with a pulse and suck them dry of their money. All you have to do is open the door to get into college nowadays! And most people have no idea about compounding interest or real living expenses when they're fresh out of high school so they believe the myths spewed by those college "counselors" who are nothing more than salespeople.

What should have been done is expand and publicly fund community and state colleges and trade schools and force private for-profit colleges to prove a certain percentage of gainfully employed graduates for each program within the first couple of years after graduation - especially those colleges that don't demand any kind of standardized tests or other kind of educational entry standards. And by gainfully employed I don't mean a $10/hr job but rather whatever the regional average for employed entry-level professionals in that particular field.

Until that happens more generations of kids will be enslaved for life.

College education requirements should be standardized and made available for free on the internet. Pass the requied tests at a test center, and you get your degree.

It is all a big scam. Until we break corporate control, we are all screwed.
