is your work now related to the course you have taken in your college? i am taking nursing now as my course so, i am hoping to get the same work in my field, may it be that i will be a nurse, caregiver, nanny and elerly care will do... just as long as it involves health care.

I majored in Foreign Trade in the university. I am also working in a trading company now. So I think at least I can work from what I have studied.

No, I am a graduate of engineering but I am engage in education and teaching. It is hard to find a job that fit to my course and I am land to this job in an easy way. And as a person I need to survive thats why I choose a job that not my own course I finished.

yes. in this scene of life these days, we have to be practical.. having a job is what we call, the one that makes us live... so i agree, having a job is great, even if it is not in your line of course.

I am studying for a degree in philosophy, but I'm aiming to go into journalism. I don't think your degree necessarily has to relate directly to your future profession; you will gain transferable skills. For example, the transferable skills I have gained from studying philosophy that are valuable to journalism include learning to evaluate and present arguments and writing to explain complex subjects in a clear and simple manner. So despite what some people may say; I will get a job! (:

yes.. there is a gain in transferrable skill that is right... i might be as well a clinical instructor in school but still it is a part of nursing, i am a nurse, yes, but i teach in school.

Ehhh, what i'm doing right now is mostly writing, online work, promotion, and remote assistance tech help with random people. What i'm actually studying in college for though is Information Systems. Nope, i don't think that my courses from college are related to the work i'm doing now, however soon hopefully they will be as I will be applying for jobs under that category.
