What To Do With Your University Degree
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, you have worked, studied and tested your way to about a billion gray hairs, an ulcer and a university degree; now what do you do with it? Surely you did not spend a minimum of two years for nothing. In all likelihood, you started your educational process with a clear-cut goal in mind, one that included what would happen after you received your degree. You do not want to waste the time and expense of getting your degree to not use it for something, after all.

If you have made your career choice, you will know what level of degree you need to work for, and how to accomplish each step toward that end. For instance, if you are going to be a psychologist, you will start by earning a Bachelor’s degree in psychology.

You might take some time to work as an entry-level counselor and then return for your Master’s degree. After you have earned that level, you will then return to university to earn your PH.D. You will certainly not want to put all of this time, expense and effort into attaining this prestigious degree only to decide afterward that you do not really care for people and go to work as a pizza delivery person instead.

Of course, your employment is not the only goal that you have in mind when earning your university degree. Your degree can be the fulfillment of a long held dream, or a gift that you give to a parent. This accomplishment may mean more to you because it is something that others said that you could not do, or would not do. It does not matter what spurred you into action, the point is you did it; you finished your education, earned your degree and you are now ready to face the next step.

A university degree will not only help you get a foot in the job market doorway, it may help you move up the ladder at a faster pace, either at your current job or at a new one. Once you have earned that degree, you may find yourself in line for promotions, raises and other bonuses that you would not have even been considered for before your education was completed. Your degree may also give you some sense of job security as well, as job cuts fell those all around you.
