Default Help Borat choose a Career

Over the last couple months i have come to the conclusion that my EE degree just isn't worth anything. maybe it's the economy or maybe not.

It has dawned upon me, that even if i am the best engineer EVAR, technically speaking i am not even a "professional"

I decided that i want to be:

a: a "professional"

and

b: a "doctor" of something

but i don't know of what ? my problem as always is that i am good at everything. for example i was always just as good in biology as i was in physics.

so one possibility is to become an MD. i would make an excellent doctor, there is no doubt about that.

but then maybe i should become a patent lawyer ? i invent new technologies all the time but never patent them ... two birds with one stone ?

there is no time to waste. we have to think fast gentlemen.

what other degrees are out there worth having ? i need a small list.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE, I AM DEAD SERIOUS AND I NEED YOUR HELP

I agree with Carl. Sales. Or advertising copywriter. Or combine them with your audio interests: Design and market high-end audio accessories.

For example, you can buy small stick-on felt pads, designed to put on the bottom of vases etc to stop them scratching the surfaces they are placed on. Repackage them and market them (at a huge markup, with a pseudoscientific brochure) as sound dampers - stick one on each wall that you need to damp.

Oh wait, someone else already did exactly that. But it does prove my point, it's a fertile field for your talents.

Fireman.

My best friend is a fireman. He makes over $100k, lots of time off, 100% job security, women love firemen, and he can retire at full pension by the age of 52.

Who needs a PhD? Waste of time.
