    Yay! Congrats on almost being done with your master’s! I started interviewing for my current job about three weeks before I finished my master’s degree and got offered the job about two weeks after getting my master’s. I was definitely lucky, and I feel very blessed by how things worked out.

    i’ll answer for my husband–he got his job about a month and a half after graduating with an ma, but that was over 5 years ago; depending on your field, the job market might be tougher now

    I voted but to be fair, I left school before the economy tanked (2005). I was hired when I was a month away from graduating with my masters. After I finished my last course, I had to move immediately for the job.

    My masters is also in a career specific field (librarian) – as in, I had to get a masters to work in a library.
