The Detroiter.com got a new look this week, and it looks like a new section "City Life" which I think a lot of people on here will find interesting.

It also has things now like "News for writers", "News for artists", "News for actors" which I think is great.

Check it out, www.thedetroiter.com

Why not just one News section called "News for the underemployed and unemployed"? :-)

At least white collar auto workers have a degree that can be used for more than kindling...

I get your guys' point. But although there are white collar auto layoffs in this current economy (as there have been white collar layoffs in almost every business and government sector) you still can't argue that a BFA or even MFA is even *equal* to an MBA or Engineering degree...

SR, I dunno ... does the degree of a Mech.E. with a dozen years experience bouncing around in auto seat manufacturing generate any more heat than the BA in English of a guy who has bounced around freelancing for the same number of years? Unless the person happens to be a Chinese national looking for work in mainland China I doubt it ...

That's a good point Rustic, however I still think there are a lot more options for an engineer than a BA or BFA. It's been my experience that being successful/finding a job in arts, entertainment, graphic design and acting is a lot harder than finding another auto company or supplier to hire you to fabricate seat bels or auto seats even if the industry is facing difficulties.

I guess it all depends on how you measure success?

I cheated to get my G.E.D. at age 31 and look at me now!

Wait, actually, don't.

Good point as well Dial, I also know lots of successful folks who have no degree... so before anyone gets defensive I'm not knocking the arts world (or the degree-less) I even have a BA and MA. But I also knew that going into the Fine or Liberal Arts it would be a lot harder to find a job than going into the sciences.
