Hope this helps.Hello,
I'm wondering if there is an expression 'by education', for example:
Mike's father is a lawyer by education.
This strongly implies that although he has a law degree he doesn't practive this profession. He's a lawyer by education, but he earns his living as a carpenter.
I'm also wondering if the sentence below is fine:
Mike has a higher education.
It's not something I would be likely to say or hear in the U.S.
Or should I replace it with 'a university education"?
I would say that he has a college degree. I know that a college is not the same in the US as it is elsewhere, though. Or "He his college educated."
My last question is about 'working several jobs". It seems to me the phrase doesn't need any prepositions, does it?
Mike's father works two jobs. - I agree
Mike's father works in two jobs.
Thank you in advance.
