Are you using your degree in your current occupation. I'm just curious on how many people that go to college actually work in the field they studied in.

Good luck with the acting. I wanted to do that so bad, I actually used to have an agency and everything, but I could never get anything. I would just get to nervous during the auditions and mess it all up.

I don't use my degrees or licenses. I gave everything up to just be an artist. www.mgcreativearts.com is my website. Are you putting your degrees to good use?

I don't have a degree, I am so disappointed in myself for not finishing. I went to school in Hawaii at Hawaii Pacific University for Marine Biology. I just couldn't afford it there and came back home. Can't exactly do Marine Biology in the middle of Kansas. I wish I could go back though.

No, i think i have specialised in computers but i am doing a job in a call center. I know thats not good for me. Hence, i have recently left my job and will start my masters degree education in about 4 months time.

yes, i do. i took up accountancy and i'm glad i did coz its demand does not run out. every business needs their books done and all money accounted for, thus, needs an accountant. i own a small financing company back in the philippines and i've put my degree in real good use with it. it's always an advantage to understand the financials of one's business.
