    This largely depends on your field of study. Clearly a PhD in a subject that isn't in demand won't get you much. A STEM PhD on the other hand would in most cases be like a golden ticket to prosperity.

    A classmate of mine had a PhD, an MD and was working on his JD.  He had never had a full-time job until he graduated from law school. His first job offer (in 1996) was from a patent law firm, paying nearly $200,000, with no experience.   It was about 30 percent more than I was being offered, for a similar job, with over 16 years of industry experience.

    You may as well stay in college and become a professor. I wouldn't even hire someone who's 33 and never worked. That your last job was a decade of COLLEGE means you have NO work ethic (other than being used to not having to attend EVERY hour of the day, and attendance being optional anyway, and its all about you).  Kids fresh out of college make TERRIBLE employees, because that's the only work ethic they know. THEY'RE CLUELESS that working is about slogging every minute without stopping because YOU'RE OWNED.

       

    Source(s): OR I might have answered this by pointing out you've made no mention of what your specialty is. You must be a qualified specialist in something now, and getting payed for it is a matter of marketing yourself, or at least understand your skills are a marketable item. ............ Did you actually post this in etiquette because youre some terribly rich kid, and your real question isnt about what TASKS youre qualified to do, no, you expect to just be GIVEN control of something interesting. Is that you??

    Identify what type of work you want and then seek out all the possibilities available to you.  Your education will be a selling point but important to present an overall profile of your experiences, skills, references and more.  Given this current social isolation, now is a good time to begin your search.

      I think it's the other way around. They'll see all that education and deem him "overqualified" and he'll end up taking orders at McDonalds!

    Little.

    A:  We are in a pandemic and there are no jobs.

    B: You write like a 10 year old child.

    Learn grammar and sentence construction please or no one will ever employ you.

      On the other hand, this is Y!a, not an interview for an executive job.

    The chance of you getting a 'big job' is not calculable, Jennifer, particular by random strangers on the internet who don't know you at all. With multiple masters and a PhD, I would have anticipated that you would already know that without having to be told. Also, typing with your CAPS LOCK key in the locked position is never a great idea. Have you been applying for big jobs? Have you considered a job in academia? How can we know how difficult it will be for you to find gainful, progressive employment if you don't tell us your background and recent history??

    What did you study and where?  Clearly your writing skills are lacking.
