Another strawman. The reason why I'm here in the first place is because even if I had to opportunity to work on wall street, I would choose ATC. There are pros and cons to any profession. I am in no way saying one profession is better than another. That depends on many factors personal to each individual. Idk why you're even arguing that point because your entire post is hypocritical. You're telling me to stop posting because I don't have a valid opinion but 50% of your post talks about a random bachelors degree and a topic you clearly don't understand or respect. There is a small amount of luck getting into a top tier financial position but that is spawned through extremely hard work. You want to talk about people being more fortunate than others as a way to discount the guys on wallstreet but won't apply that same thought to the hiring process of the FAA? C'mon now LOL. I have the utmost respect for controllers and wish to be one by the end of the current bid. You should educate yourself and learn to respect the guys who have excelled above and beyond where we are so you can understand where we are placed in the grand scheme of things.Listen here ChiefRaciallyinsensitvename, If that's the case what are you trying to get hired for? Me personally, I ain't greedy, I'll take my healthy middle/upper middle class wages and pension (if it lasts thanks to your boy) and laugh my way to the bank while the wall street bros and Oil flunkies deal with the boom or bust markets. anyone with half a brain can get a bachelors- that's the college racket- some are more fortunate than others in what comes afterwards, so be it. And talk about focus and dedication over a long period of time, wait until the if and when day you get on the job and spend your days separating airplanes for 25-35 years. You'll find if you are unlucky enough to have to stoop so low as to accept an offer from the wee little FAA that you won't find a more dedicated focused group of individuals than controllers. Your view point is obviously coming from someone who hasn't done the job, and doesn't have a valid opinion on the subject.
For the 50 millionth time, I'll spell it out for you again. All I'm saying is it is extremely annoying to see the unjustified superiority complex I have found consistent within this forum. My message may or may not pertain to you. Its hypocritical when someone posts something along the lines of "I wish the FAA would let me choose where I can work" and there's a gang of people flaming him for thinking hes a special snowflake. Then a portion of the flamers turning around with a passive aggressive response along the lines of "ARE YOU EVEN AN ATC BRO!?!?! WHATS UR IQ." I've seen a flavor of this in pretty much every thread longer than 10 pages. In fact, your post is related to what I'm talking about right now. But there is nobody talking about the blatant hypocrisy here.
If you want to talk about bright minds, intellectual ability, dedication to their work, etc. Collectively, we are a joke compared to the workforce behind Wall Street Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, and the top tier Management Consulting businesses within the scope of my argument. In the grand scheme of things we are nothing special, and I wanted to point out how annoying it is when I see someone projecting their false status through this forum.
