I guess this kind of goes hand in hand with the other thread about which field you work in and if it's the same you studied for. I am so confused and frustrated. I was originally going to be working and going to school starting this semester but i'm going to have to wait until Spring to start full time at the college because I didnt get my child care funding approved yet. (I applied as a single mom because let's be honest, I cant afford it because it's so expensive around here!) I also had to postpone it because my son starts preK next month and I want him to get use to his schedule and school as well. Augh... (BTW..i am still taking online courses part time but it will be a whiiiiile till i graduate). Anyways, I got a job at Lowe's and I love it!! And there is such great opportunity there to grow within the company and i really want to do that. But I dont want to not get an education because what if I lose my job when i'm older? What will i have to show? I guess my question is, does experience get you anywhere if you apply anywhere in the future? Do they only look to see if you got a degree or if you have experience. I dont want to work a low end job later on in life. Thanks!!
