I've been out of college for almost a year. I've been in and out of wage slave jobs for six years. I graduated from San Francisco State with a Bachelors Degree in English.

My question is simply this: Is going back to school to get a worthwhile degree (Engineering/Science) a good investment at this point? Or is there a way I can use my current degree to land a career? I'm at a loss as to how to approach any of this.

Gonna tell you the same thing I told the anon with the history major

>either settle for a gov't job that only requires a degree and computer skills
>keep trying for that dream job and work a shitty walmart job in the meantime
>expand your search and fields that you apply in

I'm sure not many people start in their dream job. Most work for credentials towards that position, or something that is somewhat related to what they want.

Thanks for the help!
Just to cover all bases, what if I do not have a dream job?

>>18033883
Not that person but if you really don't have THAT one thing you always wanted to do (in my case working at any place that lets me direct a specific task (lol project management/director)) try to work in different fields to see if you get inspired by somebody or something.

Don't you even have that one stupid dream job like working at Nintendo or being a professional football player?

That seems like the logical approach. I suppose I just have been staying in my comfort zone when has come to career ideas instead of branching outwards to new horizons.

Well if we are going with unrealistic ideas, a video game designer has been a fantasy of mine. But outside of playing games and knowing some mechincs, I have zero progress towards that path.

Making videogames requires 3d artists, 2d designers, coders, directors, supervisors, technical advisors, distribution, script writers, etc

In my case at some point I applied to a rather important videogame company but declined when they informed me I had to relocate to a shitty city in the US-Mexico border. It's still a dream of mine to do things videogames related.
