It's not, it's just a way to pay off the student loans using alternative sources. I may not even get a job with my degree - might become a novelist or entrepreneur instead. Just want the degree for backup really. I hate having bosses and people telling me what to do. (I'm sure that's not obvious. ) Although not really. In university jobs your bosses are pretty easy going and treat you with respect, not like some shop job where you get yelled at all the time.
