I've worked for year, YEARS, on my degree because I thought that once I walked across the stage and got that paper in my hands that my life would change. Or at least my employment status.
I didn't factor in having 3 children, testing for my license, and other issues that have come up during the job hunt. So far it has been discouraging at best.
So that is on my list, I need to get my resume out there, save for the testing I need for my dream job, and look for other opportunities that I may not have considered when I made this plan.
