Thanks for your emails and sharing the info and problems that people face.
I also face a problem.
I graduated from the English language department in the Education Faculty of my University.
I also studied a six months’ course of social solidarity and human development and worked in the research department for more than a year
Then I participated and passed a six months’ course of capacity building program in leadership in class.
Then I taught English as a second language, as an advisor teacher in a private college for one year.
Then I decided to develop myself. I participated in a six months’ course in capacity building program to good governance, project cycle management, clean environment and using blogger web.
Beside studying I also did these lessons practically in higher education department office as an intern.
Then I found a job as office administrator and receptionist, and I also translated some reports, and journals and so on, in an international clinic.
I worked there for more than four years. But I needed a job with a higher salary to support myself and my old parents..
So, I took a six-month course of basic accounting in QuickBooks program. Then I started to write a chapter about using the tabs of QuickBooks.
Now I’ m trying to find a job and study for a master degree.
Which field is fair for me by having these skills to study and which job could I apply for?
You are obviously a very hard worker, and very dedicated, talented and persistent,
Only you can decide what you want to do, and how you can best make a living and support your family
I would refer you to previous modules where I have dealt with career management, and also where I am suggesting you study the market to see where the best most lucrative and secure career path might lie for you.
I suggest you follow this link, and read all the modules listed here ,
in particular, these are relevant for you
I won’t go through all the content again here, there is too much to cover as this is a large section, but I strongly advise you to go through the exercises I suggest in this section, and seriously appraise yourself and your situation . The tools you need are here in these sections, also do please involve a colleague, friend or professional advisor.
Regarding a master’s degree, please visit this link, which is completely relevant to your situation.
I will briefly summarize. You should compare the outlook and opportunities that will be available afterwards, for each course you are considering. List the pros and cons of each course. If you had carried out this exercise for your first degree maybe you would have selected a different course?
I do recommend this kind of research for anyone planning to undertake any course. Do the research BEFORE the study.
Do you need to do a Master’s degree? Many jobs specify that only graduates can apply. You are a graduate. Lots of skills are transferable. Unless you are taking vocational course like accountancy, then the subject matter is not relevant.
I have often said that we may need to have a series of careers in our lives, as our roles will change as technology moves on a pace. You are not looking for a job for life. Just something you can make a living at for the moment.
I should say if I were offered your CV as an employer I would worry about your ability to settle to any one thing. So I suggest you review your CV carefully and ensure it emphasises the places you have stayed for years at a time, and not your moving about!!
