Dear Experts, I can't find a job right now in this market so I'm seriously considering going back to school in the fall. I already have my B.A. in Political Science, so what are the best graduate degrees to earn? Is it different for me than somebody else based on the degree I already have? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @gradversity Q#178 I would say either a program in engineering or business (specifically accounting) if you are just looking for a job. @juliaerickson Q#178 Cd be u can't find job b/c don't know just what u want 2 do; ID that & u'll know if need more edn 4 it. @heatherhuhman: Q#178 Completely agree w/@askamanager & @jtodonnell. Only go if it adds to your skillset or required for job. @sweetcareers Q#178 Job markets change quickly (relatively), so choose degr u love & ntwrk constantly both in & out of school. @DebraWheatman Q#178 Get an MBA. Give you strong business, analytical foundation. @jtodonnell Q#178 Should only pursue 2nd degree where actual skill set is acquired - not worth it otherwise!!! [ie. nursing] @askamanager Q#178 You don't hide out in grad school. You go ONLY because the job you want requires it. Doesn't sound like the case here.

According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?
