Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

Absolutely.  And there are some masters degrees which prove to be completely useless when applying for better paying jobs.  That's when getting a masters must sting.

My dad's masters is in education (M.Ed), He used that wisely of course.  Not all masters are alike and they certainly do create more potential for some than for others.

Getting a better paying job is only one potential reason to get a higher education.  There are many more. And for many, increased income isn't even at the top of the list.

Was this your thought by only taking a year to get a master's degree in Marketing? I may be mistaken but doesn't it usually take 2 years to get one? Or is that for the "high" paying jobs?

I've spoken with people who got MBAs, and the 2-year MBA involves a lot of math and finance and things that don't interest the average Joe.  It's harder and more meaningful.  But these are MBA snobs, the "professors," if you will.

Around here, they don't hire teachers unless they have a master's degree or a ton of years of experience.  So, teachers graduate with a Master of Education, but I don't think anyone decides to become a teacher because it is a well-paid profession.

What do you consider "well-paid"?
