“Yes, Getting a PhD Is a GOOD Idea” – really?

by phdscam

This is from reputation.com research.

We looked at 28 common PhDs and with the perhaps lamentable exception of the humanities and education, people who hold these degrees have seen their career trajectories accelerate by more than 10 percent on average in terms of compensation progression.

According to our early results, some of the best-earning PhD fields include:

  • Biochemistry
  • Chemistry
  • Neuroscience
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Pharmacology
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Economics
  • Marketing

6+ years of slavery and low pay in academia isn’t worth it. You can earn lot more if you are into job as early as possible. We have other posts in this site explaining why PhD is often a waste of time. phdcomics.com tries to portray academia as joke but its worse than that.
