Post-Degree Job Prospects Bleak? Who’s fault: the Kids or the Colleges?

He may have phrased it inartfully but Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is on to something when he talks about how college isn’t the panacea that the media is always touting it as. While college can be useful for getting a job in fields which require professional certification, in many cases, students are being sold a bill of goods by universities who care more about making money than helping people get a decent-paying job. That’s particularly true for certain majors and graduate degree programs.

In 2008-09, America’s college and universities graduated 78,009 people with journalism degrees. For those graduates who could find a job in that field, they could expect a median starting salary of $35,800.

But most won’t find a job in journalism — the number of journalism jobs is projected to shrink by more than 6 percent from 2008 to 2018, a decline of 4,400 available job positions. That data lead The Daily Beast to put journalism at the top the list of the 20 Most Useless College Degrees (a list based on crunching numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Center for Education Statistics and Payscale).

    This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    I have greatly eojeynd your website with its fascinating and helpful material on Russians in London in fact was on the point of writing to congratulate you, only to be deeply dismayed by your comment on the Lenin in London entry about my book Conspirator: Lenin in Exile having numerous inaccuracies and a rather relaxed approach to citing sources’. Sweeping statements such as this are a really dangerous thing to do particularly about the work of another professional historian. Personally I just don’t believe in doing such things. I don’t mind criticism where justified but I do wish you had read the endnotes properly and taken stock of my massive research bibliography for Lenin in London before dismissing some of my book’s content. I went to a huge amount of trouble trying to verify Lenin’s movements in London, a task which you I am sure know is fraught with difficulty, nor do I ever take a cavalier attitude to referencing. I did the very best I could to verify everything I used in existing sources. For example the meeting with Kropotkin and Lenin is well documented in a properly cited source in the notes (n. 19 p. 340). I find it perfectly plausible that Kropotkin as a major Russian exile and political celebrity would have been invited to the congress. If you can prove otherwise fine, but until you can please don’t dismiss a perfectly valid cited source frrom somebody else. As for the gentleman who taught Lenin English he was indeed called Rayment not Raymond as you say see his obituary in The Times as Henry Rayment (paperback edition p. 300 note 31). The now expensively refurbished Tower House in Fieldgate Street was originally one of a group of Rowton Houses established by the philanthropist Lord Rowton the fact that I refer to it as Rowton House is not therefore entirely inaccurate. I would ask you, most politely, as a fellow Russianist and historian to therefore be a little more fair in what you say about my book. Thank you.
