Great question!  I love hearing about everyone!


My degree is a BA in Philosophy

I can do anything with it! (or nothing, all depends on how you look at it ;))

I am currently a youth director at a synagogue and I love my job!

I’ll be going back to school in the fall for a master’s in social work so my answer will be quite different soon!

I have a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering. It took me 5 years of hard work so I am quite proud of it 🙂

I can do loads of things with it. Basically any industry needs engineers!

I’m currently working for a military contractor doing qualification testing on computer products. Ie. I make sure things meet all the requirements laid out by the customer. It doesn’t really relate to mechanical engineering though, more like electrical or computer engineering, but oh well!

I have a BA is psychology, and an M.A. and Ed.M in Psychological counseling (the Ed.M doesn’t have anything to do with education, which is a question I get a lot, lol!). I currently work as a social worker and am working toward gettiing my license as a mental health counselor, which is what my degree is meant for.

I have a B.A. in English Writing and Rhetoric, and an M.L.A. (master of liberal arts). I pretty much do anything that involves communication. I’ve been a technical writer in several different fields. Right now I do marketing/news writing/document design for a university department.

I have a BBA in business economics.

I could work for the federal reserve, any banking job, or even small bits of research.

I’m actually working as a freight broker for a transportation company.  It’s not ideal, but it pays the bills until I start my PhD in economics Fall of 2011.

My degree is in Chemistry.

There’s a bunch you can do with it–research, quality control, teach, a bunch of different things for pharma companies.

I’m in law school, so I’m not using it in any of the above ways.  I’m hoping to go into patent litigation, which requires a science background.

I have a BA in communications. However, I graduated in 97 with a concentration in TV and radio, so I can’t do dick with my degree anymore. I mean, when I took my editing classes, we were still cutting and splicing tape. My degree is totally obselete.

Plus, I worked part time doing radio station promotions after college and I ended up realizing how much I hated radio.

Now I’m an account manager at a digital agency. Having a comm degree can get you many entry level jobs, but I got my current job due to my past job experience, not my degree.

My degree (will be) in biochemistry (BS)

Like Bostonbee said above, i can do a lot with it. Biochemistry is chemistry of the living so my research could take me in a different direciton than just a chemistry degree.

I plan on going to pharmacy school or a phd program for nutritional biochemistry/toxicology.

I have a BA in psychology. I’ve been working in the nonprofit sector for 3 years (not sure how much of the psych background I actually use though!) I’m going back to get my MPH (masters in public health) in the fall and plan to do health education programming after that.

I have a BA in Advertising and Marketing

You can get lots of different jobs…mostly sales related

I am currently NOT working but worked at age 22 as a manager for a mass brand so that was pretty good/high up…I was the boss & supervisor of 75 people…although not super related to my degree

Honestly? I think most jobs I’ll work won’t relate to my degree…I wish I got it in something else…but I’m glad I have it 🙂
