    I've been thinking about this lately...how many of you work in the field that you have your degree in? I'm in my senior year, working on a finance degree and yet I know that (at least for now) I won't be using the degree as it's intended. I work as a life insurance underwriter, so technically in the finance field, but the classes I am taking now don't really help me in my job per se. It seems like most of the people I know who have gone to college work in a profession other than what their major was.

    I'm one of those freaks that actually does the same work that I went to school for. In fact, I actually have the same title that I was hoping to get when I started school. Strange stuff, I know this definitely is not the norm! :)

    Dare I suggest that hairy anthropoids might be involved? Or do you only deal with them after a good shave?

    three degrees- b.s. psychology, b.s. education with a minor in special education, and masters in science education.

    No degrees whatsoever. Spent about 3 weeks in college studying music and quickly left. Currently working as a freelance jazz musician, graphic designer/photo retoucher at a photo studio, and freelance photographer.

    chemistry...yep, using it. for most degrees and grad school, it's not how smart you are, it's how ambitious you are.
