If you have a Bachelor's/Master's/ Ph.D. in Liberal Arts, Humanities, & the soft sciences, have you
degree served you well financially? Did you get a job commensurate with your major &/or educational level or had to settle for jobs that did not require a high educational level? If unsuccessful in your job/career endeavors, did you wish that you have attained a more job relevant degree? For those who were more adventurous, resourceful, entrepreneurial, &/or flexible, did you take jobs/careers in other areas, even started one's own business/brand?
I am working on my doctorate in Sociology but I already have a masters in Sociology. I think that my degree served me well. I'm qualified to teach college but also to do statistics which opens a lot of doors. With statistics you can get a lot of jobs in different areas. I've chosen to be a college professor though so with my doctorate the degree should pay off. I've already been teaching college for 5 years and once I get my final degree I should be paid more money and have a higher status.
