I know things are tough all over right now. But I will be getting my 2 year degree in a few weeks. While it may not seem like much to the many
educated, and downright brilliant, people here on ATS, I worked very hard against numerous adversities and am proud of my efforts. I will only have an
associate's geared toward anthropology study. I lost my job at the beginning of the semester after putting in about 4 years of my time and energy. I
was mostly a grunt at a retail shop but got in some management experience toward the end there. So, I have been out of work for about three months now
and can't really afford to continue on at the university (even though I would really like to if the possibility opens up again).
See, anthropology, I hear, isn't a great field to study unless you're planning on going for the post-graduate degrees. So, at this point, I really
need to get back into the work force. This is where you come in..
Any ideas of how my experience with anthro/ and diversity can serve me in looking for entry level work either related or unrelated to this discipline?
I'm not sure my AA degree will serve me well, right now. But any fresh ideas will do me good and hopefully get me sleeping better. I have looked into
the possibility of doing some archaeology fieldwork, but most of it seems to be volunteer work in exchange for field experience; and most of it would
require me to travel more than I am capable of. My only other academic strength is writing and composition.
While on the subject of being up all night. Any good night shift jobs? My body + mind seem to function better in the AM hours and I have even worked
overnight grocery stocking for a while. I do not feel any job is beneath me. I am honest and hard working and really just want to sustain myself
Anybody have personal experiences that might relate to my current situation? Any good job ideas for a night person like me? Any thoughts, ideas,
advice, or even encouragements will be welcome. Thanks in advance for any replies.
