Just go along with the system, get the damn degree, but I wouldnt get TOO high of a degree because businesses will either turn you down because you're "over experienced" or they'll turn you down because you're degree is too high and they don't want to pay you that much.
Well I have a BA already but I understand what you mean. I don't want to be over qualified but I want to go because it does matter to me. My husband feels like he's made it off his BS degree so lets forget about school and start his business but that's just it. It's his business not mine
Hmmm..Im stuck on this. You dont say what your Masters will be in, so it may be worth it, it may not. I also think the education that has become most important isn't necessarily book smarts, but hands-on type work. Unless you are going into the medical field...then i think any advancement in education is probably immediately rewarded.
Well the problem is not about him quitting. He has 30 years in the workforce and 2 pensions from when he was a trader (on Wall St.) and the firm he's at now IT. Its about me being able to get more skills and something more to put on my Resume and eventually progress in my career. I put myself on hold for our children and I just want more access to opportunities despite life and the economy.
I think if it is something you want to do then go for it. Why not take some courses that way you could help your husband run his business and you 2 be partners? That is something I could and would do! :) Good luck to you.
