Chemistry. I never worked directly in the industry though. I spent most of my life designing and servicing industrial robotics and process equipment for the electronics industry. I switched back in 1994 to Web Development and have been doing that ever since.

Computer Science (first two years, I was dual CompSci and Math).

I now work as a Software Engineer for Bank of America, and I teach two CompSci courses at my former college.

My BA was in Biology and my Masters in Public Health – now I work as a patient navigator (kind of like a social worker) for cancer patients and their families on behalf of the American Cancer Society.

I don’t have a degree at all. My career has been a mix of accounting, sales and business administration.

I am currently majoring in marketing… and I work in the seafood department at Weis Markets. I could put what I’ve learned so far to use with display cases and such… but I don’t because I’m not in charge. =[

I want to get a job designing toys.. or just inventing in general. Yeah… that’d be nice. Or I’d like to work for Crayola. I’m a creative kind of gal. =]

I have bachelors and masters in engineering and history. I was an officer in the US Army Corps of Engineers for 29 years. Currently a farmer and working on my PhD in history.

anartist's avatar

@stranger_in_a_strange_land so you used the earlier degrees for your Army career and are now pursuing a PhD to work in academe or for your own pleasure?

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@anartist Essentially to finish off what I started 30+ years ago. The doctorate might give the few articles I write a bit more clout. I have no illusions about becoming an Assistant Professor at my age.

anartist's avatar

@stranger_in_a_strange_land all the best to you. As long as you have something to contribute there should be a place for it! And Henry Kissinger and Bucky Fuller and a host of others taught/teach as long as they want to.

bob_'s avatar

Hey, how come I got 3 GA’s just for saying what I studied and what I do? Y’all fans of the profession? You should read the quarterly reports I write. Simply bitchin’.

El_Cadejo's avatar
