If I get my Associates in a certain area can I get a job in another field?
I'm getting my Associates in Legal Studies to be a Paralegal and I'm almost finished. I'm not sure if I want to be a paralegal though. Will an Associates in Legal Studies only qualify me for a paralegal job or would I be able to get a job in another area?

Some jobs may accept an Associate degree in any area. A Bachelors degree will give you much better chances./

It's tough to get a job as a paralegal even with a Bachelor's degree. Having just an Associate's with no intention of transferring to a university is just like having no degree at all. You would basically be starting over with nothing.
