    Still trying…. haven’t got any experience to get a job with the DNR yet though.

    Working at Cabelas is sort of related to a Biology degree isn’t it… ?? #-o ;) :^O

    I didn’t go to collage but my wife did! She has a degree in travel and tourism! She has never had a job in that field! She has worked at a local convent store for 21 years and managed it for the last 15.

    Nope. Then again, one of the first things one of my college professors said was, “With an engineering degree, you could find yourself in any number of fields.”[/i:313ei0pb] So, by his outlook, I guess you could say yes. (Even if all I did was bag groceries, I guess. :p )

    Bachelor of Environmental Design (Architecture). I build buildings instead of design them We do some design-build projects, but I hire an architect to do the design. I suppose it counts as working in the same field that I got my degree in.

    Degrees in both Biology and Natural Resources…

    Now I’m working in Education, but I started off in Education as a Biology Teacher. When I end up I’ll have a Masters in Educational Leadership…

    I guess you can put me down as “sort of”

    I went to college for 2 semesters while working in the department I was going to school for. After that I changed careers to be a mechanic/fabricator and I had a high school level certificate in 2 years of Automotive mechanics but nothing to do with college. I had alot of on the job toyota specialized training that pertained to my job that required me to travel out of town for classes.

    In hind sight I really wish I had gone to school even if it was just for small buisness management or computer tech. , because I chose not to get a degree to give me something to fall back on, Im now unemployed because of an injury.

    My wife went to college for Medical Lab Tech and going back for you BS in medical technologies. up until this past year I was making about 5 to 6 dollars more on the hour than she was, but when she finishes her BS she will be making alot more than I ever was.

    I think there are fields you can chose to go into and the odds of having a job are high and then there are others that well not so much, like my wifes sister who has a BS in marketing and a minor in english and well she is a secretary.

    I think the medical field, mechanical field, electrical, computer and entertainment fields will always have a job somewhere. People have to have someone to make the sick ones better, they have to have someone to repair the things they have, they have to have electricity and wiring , computers and electronics arent going anywhere and well people always need entertainment.

    The biggest thing I think is being able to constantly evolve with your job. Sure you can be a glorified tv repair man and make good money but if all you know how to work on is the old cathod Tvs or VHS players, your time is only gonna last as long as the equipment. But if you constantly train and stay on top of your game you will succeed.

    My dad never finished Jr High and Ive gotta say he makes more than double what I would of ever made, without the education of school. But he put in the hard work and effort to keep it that way. It just all depends on what you want to do and how far your willing to take it. :thumbup
