Right after I got my BA I was dead set on being a filmmaker-- so I went to film school and got an MFA. Once I got into the work force I realized I was not a filmmaker and changed career directions. In job interviews I've been asked why I got an MFA and reservations have been expressed. In person I'm good at facing those reservations head on and explaining how skills I learned in school would be relevant for the job. However I'm wondering if-- especially in this job market-- my resume is being passed over and I'm not being called in for interviews because the MFA degree. Would it be wise to take it off my resume so I don't seem as intimidating on paper? Or is it dishonest? Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
