What graduate degree should I get to get a good job?
I have a BA in Business Admin with a Minor in Chinese.. I graduated in 2004 but haven't been able to land a career so I have been thinking that I should stop looking for a job and instead go back to school and get a masters in something that can provide me with a marketable skill. My ultimate goal is to work overseas in HongKong so I need something I can use abroad. If anyone would like to chat with me about please leave your email. I don't want to spend too long on a degree. Maximum 2 years since I will 27 then. On a side note I'd like to be a airline pilot but worry since my eyesight isn't perfect. Anyone a pilot who can tell me if you indeed must have perfect sight to get in? As for grad school I'm a bit limited since I have an undergrad degree in Business. What are some degrees I can get that will help me get a decent job? Thanks!

Look for an entirely different path. Engineering. Asian companies are masters at producing high tech equipment. Perhaps you should look into electrical/mechanical engineering, or product design. Or maybe advertising.

In my opinion your best bet would be an MBA, a masters in business administration. Since you already have a BA in business you could probably get your MBA in 2 years. My friend just got his and got a hefty raise because of it. There is always work in business, especially international work. Good luck.

I think it is better to get a higher degree if you cannot find a job.
