The good news is that if you look for a job with a B.A. or B.S. degree you will likely find one. However, it is important to understand that your salary, immediate responsibilities, and your opportunities for career advancement may be limited. If you choose to pursue an advanced degree, you will likely in the long term receive a higher paying job with greater freedom and increased responsibility, and enjoy a greater level of professional pride and job satisfaction. However, you need to determine whether or not you are willing and able to spend another two to six years in school and an uncertain future job market in order to obtain these benefits.
