I've been thinking about this for a while, and while I'm upset that I haven't been able to find a job in my chosen field I've decided that I'm not going to keep regretting getting my degree in arts/humanities. It's just silly. I've already graduated, and I can't change the past, so I should just move on and make the best of things. :lol:

Good for you. Having gotten the degree is the most important part. You will find a way to make it work for you. You just need a little momentum, I'm guessing.

Good luck!

I understand you how feel. I have a few friends who keep jobs that are not really related to their university education, but they are able to enjoy and make the most of it!

The job market is just tough, in general, right now. Just keep looking and keep applying. If you end up having to take something else to get your foot in the door, then do that. Many companies hire from within, and you will have an opportunity to show them your work ethics.

I agree that simply having a degree matters. I've had so many relatives and friends who have ended up in careers that were totally unrelated to their college studies. The only two things I would regret would be not getting a degree at all or getting one in something that I didn't really care about.

I wouldn't regret it either! It is a tough job market for anyone so it probably wouldn't matter what your degree was in. Just keep looking and keep your head up!

Are you a recent graduate? If you are, I wouldn't worry about it, you will find something eventually. If you are not, have you thought about upping your degree in your chosen field? This could put the odds more in your favor. It's something to think about.
