Grad School or No Grad School
After graduating college I decided not to jump straight into graduate school because I was not sure what exactly I wanted to focus on moving forward. I did not want to jump into a 2-5 year long program for something I was not 100% certain I would want to do long term. Since then I have figured out several things I know I don't want to do, as well as a few I am definitely considering. However, I am pretty broke at the moment and want to find some real world experience in the fields I am interested in before making a decision on a graduate school. My problem is that most companies seem to want more experience than I currently have and am likely to get with my current level of education and experience. Should I just focus on getting a job to make money in order to attend a graduate program to gain experience or stick it out and continue trying to get a job in my field of interest?
