I have a BA in English Literature and Writing and an MBA with a focus on Marketing. 

I am a Principal Project Manager for a top financial institution in the US. 

I think my English degree has been beneficial but not necessary for my job besides needing a college degree in general. My MBA has absolutely been valuable.

I have my bachelor’s degree in public health and I’m a product manager for a health insurance brokerage. Not very related but once I gain more experience as a product manager, I’m hoping to become a product manager in the public health related industry.

Bachelors degree in Social Science, Postgrad Diploma in Sexology… I’m working part time as a cleaner while I continue further studies in Psychology. I didn’t want a desk job, or anything that would drain me mentally. I figured cleaning would also help tone up my arms for our wedding 😂

I have a degree in legal studies and I am currently a law office manager. My degree definitely helped me in my position and I have found as I hire people in the staff, that even for a receptionist position in a law office, it definitely helps to have a paralegal degree. There’s so much you can’t even disclose on calls, that to do the job effectively, you have to have some understanding of why. I am considering getting my law degree at some point, but I honestly enjoy what I am doing at the moment.

I have a bachelor’s in business admin and I work in logistics. My bachelors definitely helped me get into my current job plus experience. In September I’m going back to school and getting my masters in brand management. I want to shift my focus away from logistics and focus more on that part of businesses. I’ve always was more interested in marketing and advertisement but couldnt specialized in marketing while getting my ungrad. So lame. Branding was so me the perfect fit. It has a little bit of both but a lot of everything else.

I have a BS in Forensic Psychology, and an AA in Pastry and Culinary Arts. 

I didn’t pursue either field, and I ended up working as an Administrative assistant that occasionally did custom cakes. I hated being an AA, so I quit my job and started learning computer programming. I’ve been working as a programmer for a few months now, and I love it.

Fashion, (garment construction and pattern cutting, not illustrating or marketing), I work in an alterations shop. My degree helped, as I have a good basis of knowledge and skills I use day-to-day, but I didn’t actually need it to do this. Though hopefully I don’t end up doing it forever. (I only graduated uni 2 years ago).

My degree is a BS in Civil Engineering.  I am a civil engineer- and got my job before I graduated.  I really think that the degrees that are more specific like that do a lot more for you getting a job.  (though I don’t think any education is a waste.  My sister has a BS in math couldn’t get a job so went back for a program and is now a paralegal- and my mom has a BA in French and worked as a secretary and then government clerk)

I am about to graduate with a degree in Secondary Math Education, so I will be a high school math teacher! So yeah, my degree is very specific to my future job!

I have a BSc in Biology and an MSc in Aquatic Toxicology (Degree is loosely called Integrative Biology). 

I work as a fisheries biologist technician for a gouvernment agency.

When I interviewed for the job I had to actually bring my physical diplomas with me to proove that I had earned those degrees, so yes, they were important. Although, I think having the degree is more cursory and the real reason I have this job is from specific field experience that I got from a job I had soon after finishing my MSc but never learned is school.
