Do you have a college degree? - Page 4

post #46 of 109
Tourism Management, though emphasizing Leisure Studies. How's that for an oxymoron: Leisure Studies. Well, just got 12 pages from printing out tables of catch preferences. If anyone is interested: Japanese love to catch largemouth bass (yes, they have them in Korea and Japan). Koreans love carp.

Are you being serious?

I have a BS in a program call evolution, ecology, and conservation. I couldn't decide what I wanted to study so I did this one. Most of my fellow students were premed.

Yes, but out of curiosity, of which part of the post are you doubtful? In three short years I have become perhaps one of the top 50 English-speaking experts on bass fishing in South Korea. I hope to someday be in the top 10, and maybe even score my own TV fishing show in the deal (OK, that part is not so serious. I don't want my own fishing show anymore).

I'm surprised there are 50 top bass-fishing specialists.

South Korea? Yes, I am surprised also.

Well, actually I was trying to be modest. That's why I specified top 50, English-speaking, and IN South Korea. But for those who are still in uni, may I point out that what you are doing 10 years down the road may be very different from what you expect to be doing (for good or ill). I finished my master's in 1995 at a small public uni in West Kentucky, and went on to get the MA because they were building a park next to my apartment and I wanted to keep living there. At that time, I didn't know that teaching in other countries was something someone could make a career out of, and had never heard of tourism management as a major. Now, after over 10 years of teaching in four countries/on three continents, I'm getting the doctorate in a completely different field. And when I retire from this, I maintain the dream of searching for Incan ruins in Peruvian jungles. I grew up in the only county in Western Kentucky without access to a four-lane road, and my parents had barely finished high school. When I was in high school, I wanted to be a bricklayer, as that was the only type of job I could envision myself doing (no one we knew had gone to uni). This is not to blow my own horn, but merely to suggest those still studying (and those who may be stuck in a rut) keep their eyes open for other options as they are certainly out there. And my next big goal? To be able to view the power and money section of Styleforum. Only 49 more posts to go!
Best wishes, and back to my dissertation. When I finish this thing, I hope to have time to go fishing and not just write about it.

I was about to point that out from direct experience.
