What I Did With My Degree: Public Relations

I enrolled in college at the age of 36, with the intention of improving my writing skills. It didn't take me long to realize I needed to find a way to support myself, while I was writing.

Thinking I was going to have to forgo my writing dream for a more realistic approach to earning a living, I declared a major in social work. When I learned I would have to earn a master's to get a decent-paying job in that career, I decided to change my major.
