No its not at all. Anyone getting into it should be prepared to be in school for awhile. You need a PhD to do anything with it.

If you are interested in sales, a psychology background with business/economics masters is a pretty good fit. Behavioral Economics is a hot field.

No PhD:
Guidance counselor
Work as a bad kid adviser for the state
Work at Belk

With a PhD you can make upwards of 6 figures a year easily

I beg to differ. I majored in Public Relations (Mass Communication school). Hardly ever went to class (except my final semester for my capstone project) and skated by with all As and Bs.

Add to the fact that the better majority of my classes were filled with sorority girls, and you can pretty much gauge the difficulty of the classes as a causal observer.

Eta: I really wasted my talents in that major

If I could do it all over, I would major in Finance.

Don't all B.A. degrees fit this bill?

Sorry, but some of us have been in the real world for a while and understand that there is no such thing as a bull shite major.

There are, however, bull shite people.

It's not necessarily a BS major, but it's difficult to have an actual career unless you go to graduate school. It is a good pathway to the social work profession if you get an MSW.
