Posted February 03, 2019 06:11:16It’s not easy to get a full-time job at a college.
But what if you could work for less money, and earn a living doing so?
That’s the premise behind the Universal Monster forum on the college campus.
The group’s website says it’s an opportunity to help college students and staff make more money than they can get from their jobs, by sharing the best ways to make a living from their online learning.
The forums, which currently have more than 6,000 members, provide free advice on everything from studying abroad to working as a web designer.
But one of the forum’s founders, Mark Zuckerman, says the forums’ success has been thanks to its focus on the “best” colleges.
For his part, Zuckermans dad is an engineer who lives in New York.
He graduated from Dartmouth College with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 1968.
He moved to New York in 1976, working as an electrical engineer for the state Department of Energy, which owned the Hudson River.
Zuckertom’s first job was working for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which regulates the energy industry.
But Zuckerneman says his first career move didn’t have a happy ending.
The agency, he says, started requiring him to work at a minimum of five hours a week, seven days a week.
Zorkers first experience with the energy business was working on the Port Authority’s Hudson River Tunnel, where he says he was forced to work from home for two years to meet the deadlines.
Zorneman says he had to make several sacrifices in order to earn enough money to support his family.
For Zuckenom, the first job didn’t come without an unpleasant side effect: his family didn’t want to move to New Jersey because of the state’s new energy laws, he adds.
Zuckerman says the experience taught him to be a “big believer in hard work, perseverance, and hard work over everything.”
And Zuckeman says the Universal Monsters forums offer the perfect opportunity to teach a generation of young people about the importance of hard work and persistence.
“You can’t be happy and successful in this business unless you’re willing to put in the work, you can’t do it in a weekend, you have to be willing to do it year round, year after year, so I think that’s a really good place to start,” Zuckermans father says.
While there’s nothing wrong with a college student going to college to study, it’s important for students to understand that not all of them will end up in the same situation, says Chris Trombetta, executive director of the College Learning Alliance.
“Some people may be able to make it, and they may not, and we can have that conversation,” he says.
But TromBetts point out that not everyone can make it to the top.
For example, a recent report from the Institute for College Access & Success found that one in four college students had a high school diploma, but only 4.7% of those students went on to college.
That means that for every one college graduate who makes it to college, another two don’t.
The report also found that half of those who graduate with degrees in business, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are working in the financial services sector, while less than one in five went into finance.
The report’s findings echo those of a recent study published in the American Journal of Business Education.
The authors say that although it’s easy to make ends meet, the biggest challenge for students working in finance is the high cost of college.
Trombs report notes that some college graduates who graduate from financial services and law schools earn salaries that average about $30,000 a year.
But for some students, financial services degrees can be more than just a stepping stone to a career in finance.
A 2015 survey from CareerBuilder found that those with degrees from financial service fields earn an average of $100,000 annually.
A 2017 survey from the American Association of Colleges and Employers found that over half of college graduates with a BA degree or higher have a career that involves finance, compared to just 6% of all college graduates overall.
“What I think is very important to understand is that for those with a degree, the difference between a good job and a good career is a very real one,” says Trombos report.
“It’s about a lot more than simply getting an undergraduate degree.
I think it’s about what you learn, how you build your career, and how you learn from your experience.”
