Probably should count more than anything. I did more useful things at TAFE (except for my Fine Arts stint) than I've ever done at uni.

I have a BA in Sports Management, with a business minor. I now work in the Communications field, though it's still within the realm of sports....but, I'd have to say no, I'm not really applying the things I studied to my current job.

...a BA is History? You may be right about the high school kids. (Kidding, kidding!)

OMG my paper trail is a mess.

I got a BA in Political Science, then was jaded by the field. After I graduated I held more than 10 jobs in 1 year (not at the same time) before I went to AmeriCorps. None of those were at all related.

Then I got an MAEd in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. I did actually work as an advisor for graduate students at a 4 year research intensive university. That only lasted a year though. Life happens.

Now I'm back in school once again, getting a doctorate. It's kinda crazy to go from PoliSci to Higher Ed, to Health. But, when you put it all in context with my life timeline, it makes sense. I expect to be working in this field after I graduate. I don't wanna work for no more bitches.

Originally went to school for psychology, worked in real estate for 10 years, now back in school finishing my degree in health administration and I am working for a large healthcare system in patient accounting. Not where I pictured myself to start but it's a steppingstone until I get my degree.

I have a BA in Literature with emphasis on Shakespeare I originally planned on going for a masters in library science but after working at a library for 3 months, I decided that was not the job for me.....also I don't like to read much I worked in the finance industry for 5 years processing all sorts of loans and leases for several different types of industries. I have 1 more year until this degree is paid off. This degree never paid off for me, especially since I have horrible grammer and punctuation.

I also have an Associates degree in Applied Science, Culinary Arts with a focus on Patisserie and Baking. That's what I should have done to begin with...long story. I'm currently a Pastry Specialist at a resort. The loan payments are putting me in the poor house but it was definitely worth going to the school I went to. I was extensively taught in the art of french pastry. My education has definitely paid off at my job opportunitywise but not $$$ just yet. Some day it will.

see what I mean?

Actually, if one of my students were to say this it would be, "my BA History." It's the "who your baby daddy?" syndrome. When I first started it was like learning a foreign language.

On the plus side, I've built up some serious street cred.
