I'm going for my bachelors in Accounting. I already have a degree in English lit but it isn't getting me anywhere so I'm giving it another try! I'm a full time student and a just slightly less than full time worker at a non-profit organization that helps kids with developmental delays.

I haven't taken out any loans yet, actually. It probably would have bombed any chance for my husband and me to get a building loan. It's also one reason I'm more secure in the idea of taking a short break from school for a while if the household financial pressures get too high: I won't have to start paying back those loans if I take a longer hiatus.

Glad you're back, Linn! I hope you can manage to pay your loan and stay in school. I have taken out student loans to help pay for school and it will be interesting when it's time to start paying them back.

I was here previously, then left due to a goal crashing. I'm back now, and dedicated to getting this weight off and my life turned around!

I'm still studying through Clarion University and still in their Liberal Science, Library Science focus Bachelor's program. I'm a junior now and probably will be for the next two years. Assuming I can afford to stay in school.

I work full time at one of the busiest library branches in our five-county system, located in a shopping mall. While my husband and I both work full time, it's looking slim because we're going to be building a house in the next year (we may be closing on the loan as soon as next week!). Of course, we're okay now, financially, but money might be VERY tight once we're paying on the loan. Sadly, my schooling will be the first to go if that's the case. :(

Hi everyone,
I am currently completing a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Environmental Science part time. Anyone else doing the same thing?

For our system, a related field would be preferred, but they won't even consider me because I have no BA. If you're applying for a position with "librarian" in the title, they usually want a Masters in Library Science or current enrollment in an MLIS program.

KIJIPEOPLE,

For the BA. Does it need to be in a certain field or a related field? Like with social work, it's BA in social work, human development, or related field with some experience. It think it would be a lot of fun, especially in the children's section. I wish I got that job. It would've been neat. Good luck!

Charming Girl,

It has been a great job. I've been working in this system for five years now, three of them full-time. It's stressful right now, though, because I only work circulation and our branch is particularly split into circulation and reference. I'm not "qualified" to work reference because I don't have a bachelor's degree. *snort*

KIJIPEOPLE,

Nice. I applied for a job at my local library in the children services but didn't get it. They hired in house. It seems like it would be a fun job. Good luck.

I've just re-started a bachelors' degree, having been out of school for close to eight years. My original studies were in English Writing, but I've switched to an online program, Liberal Science with a focus in Library and Information Science. I currently work in a library, so it's particularly applicable to my job and I might be able to get the library to pay for some of it. Once I'm finished (some six years from now), I'll start a Masters in Library Science from the same school and I can apply for financial aid from my library.

I've in the Field of Early Childhood Education. I do think that Business Administration would help in that especially if I decide to open a center. I'm in my 6th quarter and have three more quarters after this winter quarter, then I graduate with a BA in Early Childhood Education with concentrations in Infants and Toddlers and Children with Special Needs.

After that I'm heading into a Masters Program.

I'm only in my second semester, working on an associate in Business Administration. My plan is to move on to a Bachelor in Hospital Administration and eventually an MBA in Business Administration as well.

Currently I am working as an administrative assistant at a state psychiatric hospital, my plan is to work my way up the ladder here at work!

While I am in school now, I have developed my entire career working in the nonprofit industry. Funny, I am currently employed by the federal government while I continue my education. (A little security). I have consulted for many years with smaller nonprofits and churches. I really hope to return to that type of engagement on a professional level someday. IF you ever have a quick question - feel free to post or email me. I am glad to help where i can.

Same for any student. No need to struggle alone when you have a circle of friends in this SparkTeam with knowledge and expertise ready to assist you at any time. Just ask.

I already have a Bachelors in Accounting. I just started my Master's in Nonprofit Management!

Right now I am taking Fundamentals of Nonprofit Organizations - it is my first Masters class. The semester is broken down in two halves of 8 weeks each. I am going into week 8 now. I will start Development Strategies of Nonprofit Organizations next week.

I am currently in the third year of my Bachelors degree in Project Management. Once I complete my Bachelors, my plan is to continue and get an MBA. Getting an MBA has been a lifetime goal of mine that I am seriously re-thinking. I am considering the possibility of a Masters in Public Administration with a Concentration in Nonprofit Leadership. Time will tell. . . I am still thinking about what I want to do with the rest of my life. LOL!

This term I am taking a Management Accounting class and Intercultural Business Communication. How are about you?
