I have an English degree and I have no fucking clue what I'm supposed to do with it.

My current employment is walking the streets of Chicago selling smiles for a quarter a piece.

My BA is in Economics, specializing in Political Economy, and it wasn't until 20 years later that I got a job where, while not directly utilizing it, the degree is actually relevant to my workplace and in understanding all the policy issues we are working on there.

Also, it helps in understanding what Bono is working for with his campaign.

I have a BA in Psychology, I worked as a group home counselor with severely emotional disturbed and abused children until I realized I was a complete wuss and unable to deal with certain situations without running to the bathroom teary eyed. I have a paralegal certification and I am currently a corporate law paralegal.

I have found that clients like to tell me their personal problems so I'm sorta using my bachelors. My diagnosis for most of them is republican

When people ask what I'm going to do with my degree, I tell them "frame it and write my memoirs."

In the US colleges can generally only offer bachelor's degrees or lower, while universities can offer higher degrees.

Here's a link explaining in more detail.

BSc (or BS for you Americans), JD.

Law school kinda only teaches you one thing, and even that poorly, so in short, yes I am in my field.

BA in Economics in about two years, after that I don't really know. Either on to the Master's directly after that, or working somewhere. I could use a break from studying.
At my semester abroad here in Missoula I'm taking Environmental Economics and Economic Development. I would love if I could combine both fields to bring about kind of a green development.
But I cannot say for sure what I will end up doing later... except for becoming ridiculously rich and travelling for most of the year.
