- Wedding: October 2013
Hi Bee’s! Now that i’m all married and not thinking about weddings, I’ve had more time to think about the future, work, and kiddos! I graduated with my BA in 2011 and have been very lucky with my current career. I have an excellent “Director” title at a company that i’ve been working for since we relocated out of state 3 months ago, and a previous job that also helped me tremendously right after I graduated. My salary is quite good as well, and DH makes more than enough for the both of us that this isn’t really a money concern.
I’ve always imagined having a masters degree of some sort, but I don’t miss school. Getting into a grad program wont be an issue either, and it would most likely be online, part time. I would love to get to learn more about what I do, which is marketing, PR, and social media but I have so much hands on experience that it might be repeating what I already know. At the same time, I’m worried that when we relocate back to my home state in 3 years, my opportunities might be lessened if I do not have MA written on my resume. Or it might not be an issue at all because my current experience is quite good.
I also want to TTC around the same time that we move back home, so I don’t know if I’m going to put my career on hold for a little bit. Grad school would also be a $30,000 investment, and while it’s not a huge deal, that money could be put to better use.
Essentially, my only internal struggle I have is that I’ve always imagined having a MA, and feel a little unfulfilled not having one. I’m also not looking to work super hard in my career but rather work for where I enjoy working most.
Anyhow, anybody have a similar dilemma or advice they want to throw my way?
