It all depends on your objectives and goals in life. No matter what you do, you need to pursue your passion. I'm an aerospace engineer with degrees in industrial an Systems engineering and an MBA. My youngest daughter loved to work with young children. Since graduating, she has worked with severely disabled people for about three years and just loved it. Now she has an internship for a teaching position. She will never make the kind of money I make as an aerospace engineer, but she is happy. I think that's what matters.
