Checking back in on Blondie today at Tales from Clark Street. She's got a great post about whether you need a master's degree to get a job and get ahead in publishing. She makes some excellent points, such as the fact that people who go straight to work after college often end up higher on the ladder than those who stayed in school. She's also completely right that a master's degree isn't for everyone. And then there's that little issue about massive college debt.
I was actually thinking about this very subject on the way to work today. I think someday I might consider furthering my education; and in the future, it might just be a necessity. But for now, I'm happy with my choice to stick with the B.A. and go straight to work.
