I guess the question is self explanatory. Elaborate if you would like.

Hope so, need to pay off me uni debt, and the job could be quite enjoyably tolerable.

My degree is in business communications with some minor studies in computers and international development studies (formerly called Third World Development Studies when I was still a student).

My day job - not really. I'm a laptop technician and do customer service, I also oversee servicing all of the classroom equipment at this college. My evening job(s) - yes. I manage several web sites for for-profit and non-profits and do administrative and promotional work for some clubs I belong to. Would like to get off the first and focus more on the second. Money, health insurance, and vacation/holiday benefits keep me at my first job.

Received a degree in English Literature, a Studio Art minor and then a certification in & Paralegal Studies...... today...... I am farther from those fields as ever! Currently working in clinical research at a Pharmaceutical Company.

It's amazing what changes life brings. We are different people 5 years or 10 years after graduating college/university. With personal development sometime comes career change

I have a BA in Psychology (social work specialization) and Sociology. I don't work in this field at all, as you generally need a Masters to get a decent job. I hated school, so I've been delaying getting my Masters. I probably will get that eventually, as I do want to work in that field some day.

Right now I work in a completely unrelated field, but I absolutely love what I do. I have no education in my area, but I have a natural talent for it.

I have a degree in English and was just short of an associates in Education. At my current job I speak English and skool suckas with my mad linquistics skillz, so I think I got my money's worth.

I'm still in college right now (not this semester as I'm in the process of transferring schools), and I'm doing a double major in Political Science/International Studies with a concentration in International Affairs and communications. I want to go to law school after I get my B.A., for Human Rights Law, and I eventually want to be a Human Rights lawyer for a Human Rights organization.

I am approximately a year and a half away from completing my BA. I'm hoping to get a master's degree in literature after that, and we'll see where it goes from there. Ideally, I'd love to become an English professor and torture undergraduates for the rest of my life, but I do realise that earning a PhD isn't exactly a walk in the park. I might consider doing a fast-track BEd after (er, if) I get my MA, just to have something to fall back on.

There's always Law, too...

When I was in college I was going for criminal justice. Decided on an alternative method for my schooling with law still being the chosen field for my career.
