I have spent the last four years studying tourism, business and marketing and I'll be done with my studies in a couple of months. Just don't ask me what I'm going to do next. I'm sure I will find something, somewhere.

I'm another person with a bachelors degree in English. I also have an MLIS, or masters degree in library and information science. I'm a research and editorial assistant for a newspaper. So, yes, I work in one of my fields.

I'd like to use my masters more. However, as others have said, library jobs are difficult to get these days.

My degree is in International Affairs. I work in the accounting dept. for a research science company. So no I do not use my degree in my line of work.

Haha, I wish I had done that.

I'm double majoring in Music Composition and Communication/Culture, film is my big interest but I didn't want such a limited degree, so its something I do on the side I've taken courses in Boston and California and I'll be doing some more in Prague next summer. When I graduate I may do a fifth year Master's program for communication, and hope to work with marketing/administrating for non-profit groups or work in film scoring or public television like BBC/PBS, etc. Most of the time I accomplish nothing because my brain is going in 15 different directions, I'm also really into literature and would like to write more, but I'm not looking for a degree in that.

I have a BComm specialising in Public Relations and the Music Industry. I then got a dipEd and am currently a yr 5 teacher. So I am working in the field, but I really want to go into publicity and promotion for a film studio in Australia and am always keeping my eyes open for any such jobs, or jobs that can lead me that way.
I'm also doing a grad dip in child psychology, which when finished is a pathway to being a guidance counsellor at school or what i want to do, working in the government under the kids matter umbrella because over the last 18 months I can see pretty big holes in this one area!
ahhh we'll see what time brings.

Sorry about that, camera work has always fascinated me.

Thanks. Me too especially when they are robotic and look like something out of War of The Worlds.
