“What can I do with a bachelors degree?” is a common question especially for those weighing the benefits of a college degree against the time and cost of obtaining a degree or for new graduates who are unsure whether or not they are prepared to enter the job market. The good news is there are many jobs you may not have ever considered.
Technology has provided more avenues than ever for those with skill in a specific area who are able to effectively communicate in an online format. For those who acquired a degree online it's a natural choice to use the same skills to communicate beyond the classroom. Look for titles like Blogger, Moderator or Content Producer for out of the ordinary opportunities to put your bachelors degree to work via the Internet.
Other possibilities include teaching leisure or adult and continuing education courses with your local technical college. Teaching has the added benefit of refining your public speaking skills while building a solid and respectable reputation in your local community.
Finally consider consulting, lecturing or writing about the topic of interest. It helps build your credentials and provides an impressive foundation to build your reputation upon.
