What type of job should I go to school for in this economy?
I'm curious as to where the money is. I have no clue what to do for a job that will support me when I move out of my house. What kind of schooling can I get that can be used? Sorry typo, what kind of degree / certificate can I get that I can actually use?

I would say that engineering is the best, but the hard part is making it through school. I'm on my last semester in Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M and I have already had two interviews.
