what would you major in if you went back to collage.
i went to collage for aviation and im starting to think it was a mistake. i cant get a job in the field and the jobs you do find, to get your time, dont pay crap. im thinking about going back and getting another degree, what do you guys recomend. what would be a good strong field to get into that i could really grow with this day and age. im more of a tech/ hands on person, not the type to sit behind a computer all day. thanks guys
you aint crashin you aint learnin

I think maybe you should go back and take spelling for a major. It is College not collage. Collage means this:
A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

A collage may include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.

The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue".[1] This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art

I would major in Sociology with a minor in either International Business or Marketing. Then perhaps a post grad of law (contract/interlectual prop)If you don't know where you are going any road will take you there.

Well, I would go in to electrical engineering myself. Lots of different job settings avail, anything from utility work to component repair depending on what you like. Good pay and lots of hands on work if that is what you like. While in college I was friends with a guy whose dad was an EE. Had his own business, made very good money, but of course he was landing contracts like doing all the the wiring for Univ of Missouri-Columbia's football stadium. But I am not sure how the job market is right now.Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Not to be a dick or anything, but I do feel that proper spelling and grammar are important especially if you are considering a move that would entail returning to college. I also (with my wife) own a couple of retail shops, and the resume's that we get for sales people are hideous. It is very difficult to envision these people running your store when they cannot put a simple sentence structure together. The thing that really boggles me is that a resume' generated on a word processor will easily spell check. If they are too lazy to even do that then I have a hard time proceeding with an interview. Unfortunate as I have probably missed out on some great people because of it...

To back up your original question though, anything environmental or safety related are good fields to get into. From there you can set up in either an office or field position.

civil engineering. I worked in that field as a tech/designer for lots of years. Made good money. Made friends that had their degrees. They're my age and in their mid forties, several have retired already. Our infrastructure is falling apart and this will have to be addressed in a big way and there is already a need for Civil Engineers, so the math is obvious. Any area is good, I would lean towards Environmental or really specialize and go into Traffic Engineering. SUPER EASY field and they definately make the big cashe!!
I'd like to go back, but I'd have to start from scratch. I am going to move forward into IT and web design were I can get work with certifications. Best wishes. Don't let the spelling ninnies get you down!!

My advice is to take Accounting I & II, there are always job openings for begining accountants. Include an Excel course, these skills will get you started and then you can decide from there.

I agree 100%. Back when I did hiring and firing, some of the resumes I received were not to be believed. I wish I had saved them to show people job hunting how not to do it.

holzback, maybe a little attention to detail could help you in aviation.

Hands on technical + bad spelling = engineering.

in many respects it sucks, many bosses, customers and (worst of all) marketing nit wits hassling you, but it is generally good stable work, and a basic mechanical engineering degree lets you move across industries as the economy changes. Medical, Defense, Civil, Manufacturing, Electronics... if you have a mechanical engineering degree you can get in.

If you want to set your sights a bit higher, get your MBA, works well with an engineering degree. If i didn't hate MBAs so much i would be back in school to become one.

CNC Machinist leading to being a good CNC machine programmer is very lucrative and they are hard to find. Here in LA if you are good at both you can make more than an engineer with a degreekeepin' it real

30 plus years in aviation here. Ya, I hear you loud & clear. If I was to do it over, I'd look hard at Civil Engineering or something Agriculture related. People need roads and buildings, and people gotta eat. Interestingly enough, I have one kid majoring in Civil Engineering, and the other majoring in Animal Science. The other thing people gotta do, is die. So, perhaps something in the funeral business. Not for everyone, and definitely not for me! But, having recently lost my wife's parents, I think the money is pretty good.

i was kidding my spelling is really sad.

i have so many friends who graduated with me and they are stuck also. i feel that moving on while im still in my 20's may be a good choice.

im not real bright, (hence the spelling) i dont think i could make it through any type of engineering. i want to, i want to do something like EE, but i dont know if im smart enough. seriously.
the last thing i need to do is waste loan money. what about buisness management, something i could get done on line?

Never sell yourself short. Part of getting the most out of an education is learning something that really interests you. The last thing you want to do is spend 3 or 4 years getting an education in something that you hate doing.
