Honestly, just having a degree is half the battle to get a job.  But I would really think about what you want to do before getting a degree.  What exactly do you want to do with your creative nature?  Is it something that a degree will really help you with?

Sounds like you could choose almost anything you wanted for a bachelors. IF you chose something aside from business you may need to take a few extra courses, but you could.

But within business there are lots of options and even those degrees give you lots of career options based on specialies and experience.

Marketing with a bit of a techniocal/financial experience is pretty “marketable”. Most marketing grads dont have the Finance knowledege experience and that would give you an edge and to work in the marketing arena, which is certainly more creative than an analyst.

But even within marketing there are lots of options./

There is corporate side or agency side

there is advertising, marketing, project management, merchandising, consumer insights etc.

There is retail, foodservice, services, IT, manufacturing etc industries

There are marketing analysts, brand managers, product managers, event coordinators, etc.

I would recommend reading What Color is Your Parachute to help figure out what you like and what your strengths are and to plan backwards from there.

Did I read that right? You are going to use your employers’ money to go to school and you are not going to stay with them?

My recommendation would be to do something as technical as possible for your bachelor’s.  Once you’ve graduated I think it’s much easier to move into a less technical, more creative field if you want.  If you get your degree in fine arts for example, then it will be quite hard to go back to working for a utility if that’s what you decide you want to do in the future.

@happyface:  unless there are stipulations put on a reimbursement system, then there is no harm in using it. I worked at Wendy’s during my Associates, they offered reimbursement since I was a manager, and then I left not long after I got my degree. No one said anything about it, because they couldn’t

@MrsSl82be:  Oh, i have never heard of this, that’s why. Thanks for clearing it up, I also talked with another friend of mine and she said basically the same thing, you can use it but they can’t force you to stay…
