    Stay where you are until after graduation. Its a rather nice set up to be able to get paid to do your homework. I would milk that! its not easy to be working full time and in school and to be able to kind of do both things while your on the clock is nice since it allows you to still have a life outside of work and school. I would maybe keep looking around casually and see if you stumble upon anything worth it. But please do not take a pay cut and lose the opportunity that you have. It might be boring, but its only temporary. So use it to your advantage.

    can you get a part time internship or something to boost your experience?

    Stay where you are. I agree that you really need to take advantage of getting your homework done at work. You’re getting paid to complete your degree, essentially.

    Could you cut back on some of your hours at your current job and also take an internship in your field? I know more internships don’t pay much, and sometimes nothing, but it would be great for you to have some experience.

    I say stay but only because you said you can’t afford to take a paycut – you have to be able to provide for yourself and your education.

    If it weren’t for that, I’d say look for a job in your field to get yourself ahead of the competition.

    honestly i would stay put. i get a lot of my homework done at work and its a huge help. when work gets busy and i cant get my studying in there, i feel a major crunch in my home life.

    i am in the same boat as you, working on getting into social work/counseling and stuck in a desk job talking about insurance. to help me soul not die, and pad the resume for my future, i volunteer at a counseling center for grieving children. maybe some volunteering would help you feel less stuck in a dead end job?
