I am in the same boat now too! I am not married yet though.

I graduated with a degree in Communications and concentrated on graphic design. The only problem is I am now graduated and do not want to do graphic design! I have been in several jobs that I hate because it is not what I really want to do!

You need to do something you really want…if you try to get a teaching job you arent going to like it because it sounds to me that is def not something you want to do…

Take it from me find something you like because if you finish just to have the degree you are going to hate every job! I think you are on the right path trying to find a job that interests you! something will come up! hope I helped!

Also, you may not like to teach but is there another career you can pursue with that degree? When I am looking for jobs some require a teaching degree but it is not a teaching job!

@aranel1002:  I loved graphic design in school! Now I hate it lol. I don’t know if it is just the company I am working for or the job in general. I have the same problem as you though, it takes me time to think of ideas, when they are need right away I stress! And honestly the company I am at now has no work, I sit all day and surf the web!

I think its great you are finishing your degree! You will be able to do a ton of other things with it, you just really need to look. I’ve seen some jobs as program coordinators for companies that work with children that require you to have an education degree. With a masters in Education you will def be able to advance in schools! I think you will be happy with your degree and surprised at the jobs you can obtain with it. Even just having a Masters will help you!

My problem is now I do not know what I should do with my degree, since graphics is out. I’ve been apply like crazy to everything just to get out of this job but so far I havent had any luck! I would love to work non for profit but I am having trouble getting my foot in the door!!

I think I am going to go back and get my teaching cert! (if only we could switch degrees lol) My old university has a program where you complete 5 night classes and can student teach to obtain the cert (of coarse you need to have a Bachelors and pass the Praxis). My Fiance was ok with it and said we will make it work when I student teach (money wise). I am excited I emailed the program director just waiting to hear back.

You could always do graphics on the side =] So your not going to student teach? Are you working now? if so, what are you doing??
