The job market is not particularly strong at the moment, and you may wonder how you are supposed to find a job without a graduate degree, especially when there are people with graduate degrees competing for many of the same positions. It may be tempting to graduate school just to wait out the slow recovery and try looking for a job again in two years. But jobs may still be hard to find in two years, and the person with a graduate degree and no experience will still be at disadvantage compared to the person with a graduate degree and experience. People who fluently speak a foreign language have better job opportunities. Winkle III a native of Georgia, upon receiving a history degree from Mercer University in 1969, took a job on Capitol Hill and ‘fell in love with politics and law’.
