I've noticed that a lot of the career and education advice here can be... pessimistic. With many comments saying something to the effect of 'run, run away as fast as you can! You won't be able to afford a bicycle to ride to your night job at Burger King!'
This got me thinking, if you had a second chance (assuming you are unemployed or at least unhappy with your current profession, or even happy but willing to throw in your $0.02) what alternate degrees or careers would you seek?
I'm interested in trying to build a Master's degree that would make me competitive in the planning field (internships and networking, I know), and also open up the possibility of branching out into other fields (economics, non-profit management, Burger King management, etc.) if I find the planning field as cold, emotionless, and desolate of employment as some of you chipper folks make it out to be.
