Engineering Majors Boast Job Prospects Like Assholes

 

Tragic News as the over 8,000 Engineering students at Iowa State continues to rub in the fact that they will be able to get jobs once they graduate. Students outside the College Of Engineering continue to have to deal with upperclassmen in engineering describe their internship where they were paid $30 per hour. Or even worse, their engineering “friend” won’t stop bragging about the cushy 70k a year job they have already lined up in their dream city. All the while, existential dread about what they will do after graduation and the uselessness of their own degree quickly set in. Local sociology lecturer, Lawrence Mentior, has his theory on why this phenomenon continues to be so prevalent. “It seems to be the combination of the extremely strong job market for engineering and the general lack of social skills and empathy of the engineers. It’s a deadly mix. They’re making more money than, say, a skilled, graduate educated lecturer at an esteemed university right out of college. and they just don’t give a damn about my feelings.” He stated, clearly attempting to stop himself from crying.
