WhenWillILove Posted September 23, 2011 Share Posted September 23, 2011 Alright, I've noticed a trend, a phenomenon, or whatever....But I've noticed something. And that is....There are some people who are very educated (i.e. Master's and beyond) who are making less than others who are less educated (Bachelor's, or less). Take my boyfriend, for example. At 26, he earned 84k. Now, at 28, he's earning 87k. And he's in a higher management position. Others in his department, who've got PhDs, are earning 65k. And still, others, who've got the same degree he's got, are earning much less than he is. A relative of mine, who graduated college with a GPA of 2.5 (maybe even less) is earning 90k now and is in a supervisor position. A friend of mine, who failed 5 classes in college, and graduated with a mediocre degree, is now an MD. Just kind of goes to show that grades aren't that much of a predictor when it comes to success. I am starting to think that it's more of a personality that gets the big bucks than knowledge. And knowing somebody. My boyfriend's really sociable and he just blends so well with people. He'll find talk even with a stranger and hit it off. So....Insight? Link to comment
