I am considering going back for my Masters in Education. But is it worth it to make like $3 more and hour, if I love what I do now?

  • If you are employed, are you employed within your field? I am employed in my field which is call center management. I have made it through a couple rounds of lay offs the last being last Feb, but I feel very lucky my company is doing well in this economy.Are you seeking a better job? We had a pay freeze this year so I have contemplated it but my employer is really trying to make up for that.  What I have learned from them in experience thus far has been worth far more than a raise.  We just hired 15 people and will be hiring another 100 by November.

  • I've been lurking for awhile, but I figured I would post here first! I hope everyone searching out there gets what they need soon, I can't believe how tough and saturated it is out there, I was incredibly lucky, and like others said, I got my job because of someone I knew.How long have you been looking for a job? I was on the job hunt for 8 daysHow many jobs have you applied for? I applied for at least 30 in those eight daysHow many interviews have you been on? I went on one interviewWhat is your highest level of education? I graduate in December with my BS in Gerontology, Long Term Care AdminWhat field do you want to work in? GeriatricsIf you are employed, are you employed within your field? I was hired last Friday as an Admin Assistant for a Nursing Home Facility near meAre you seeking a better job? Not at the moment, but I am excited about the opportunities that I have within this company, although I would love to be with a national elder care chain rather than a state wide, but all in due time
  • Oh man...my post didn't look like such a wall of text when i wrote it (stupid bold!) I was unemployed a year ago, so I'll answer both!How long have you been looking for a job? I looked for probably about 5 months. Looked full time for a little over two months.How many jobs have you applied for? I would say I applied for over 100...at least. I spent a lot of time and effort on at least 30-40 applications, and sent more generic cover letters to a lot of places on careerbuilder, monster, etc where I didn't really expect to get a hit anyway.How many interviews have you been on? I had two face-to-face interviews and I think three phone interviews.What is your highest level of education? Master of ScienceWhat field do you want to work in? I want to work with animals. However, my degree is in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, so not anything animal related whatsoever.If you are employed, are you employed within your field? Sort of. I work for a company that does educational research. The skills I learned earning my degree transfer to this job, but the field is different than I expected. My degree is workplace related, not education.Are you seeking a better job? Not currently, but I will in a few years. I need to get some solid experience first. I am underemployed (IMO) and earn far less than I expected to when I signed up for the whole "masters degree" thing. If i had understood that this was the job/salary i'd get, and how much debt i'd accrue, i never would have gotten my MS.... so anyway, I need to eventually get a better job in order to make the MS relatively worth it.

  • January - yes, I'm a public accountant but I specialize in tax. I do work in our audit department in Jan/Feb for the big year end audits though. An accounting undergrad might have been helpful for you, but then again I often wish I had a stronger background in finance during some of my audits, so I guess there's always more to learn.. :/
  • I'm doing this for my husband. -Since January (7 months) -He's really specialized, so probably 10-15 -one -masters degree in electrical engineering -electrical engineering. specifically design work. he was in school until May... so he's only been freaking out about not having a job 3 months.
  • I am employed in my field. I have a dual BA in Geography and Urban Studies and a Masters in Urban Planning. I work for a geographic information systems software company consulting  government clients on technology implementation. I am not seeking a better job, I love what I do and who I work for. And I love geography. I've thought about going back to school for a PhD in economic geography, and really more education is the only way I'll change my job as of now.
  • How long have you been looking for a job? I was actively searching from the beginning of February to late-April. How many jobs have you applied for? A lot! I lost track after about 20. How many interviews have you been on? I went to 1 interview, and got hired to a different job without an interview. What is your highest level of education? 1 year towards my BA. What field do you want to work in? Ultimately, probably Social Work or maybe HR. I'm working on my BA in Arts & Business (majoring in pre-social work, specializing in HR) If you are employed, are you employed within your field? I am now employed, but it's just summer work in AR, so not really in my field, but kind of. Are you seeking a better job? Well, I will be come September (I finish this job then, too), when I apply for my first work term which is in January. I'm hoping for a social services job of some kind.
    He pretty much had me at "hello".
    -- PS I agree with whatever Jeana said --
  • I am employed. Submersed in my field. I love it. Best ever.
