Sorry for the West Side Story fever I have here. LOL. First of all, I just want to say that I love all the TPFers here. I've received many great advices and encouragement from here in the past and up until now. I couldn't appreciate more. I'm writing this because I need your precious advice once again. I'm about to finish my bachelor degree in fine art and currently not knowing what I'm going to do with my life after college. I have two options, one is to go to grad school and another one is to get a job. At the point, I've decided to find a job since I don't know whether grad school is right for me. So my questions are... 1. How important is grad school? Do you think you getting a master degree will increase a chance of getting a job? 2. How hard is it to get a job for someone who is not a U.S. citizen especially in fashion industry? I feel like I'm far behind when I found out my friends already have job offers or get accepted to grad school. I really don't know what I'm going to do with my life. If I can't find a job, I have to go back to my home country due to my visa status. Going back home isn't so bad except I think I'd be happier working and living here in U.S. I'm sorry for a long post. Thanks for reading my rant.
