    So I finished college with a degree in English and Education...
    I quickly began subbing in local schools with no job offers, which made me think of a new path...

    So last year I decided I wanted to get into the book publishing field...Either write, edit, copy write...basically anything to get me started. However, All these major companies are looking for experienced people, and I don't have the exact experience but I would like to learn...I would intern and work for free..but in order to intern you need to be in college...Frustration!

    So here I am rethinking another path..and going back to school...

    Ultrasound tech. or Xray tech.

    I have no idea what I should do.. Go back to teaching, try for publishing, or start a new career.....??

    Any helpful advice?!?!?


    Suggestions?

    I am just lost!

      Move to NJ! I know someone who is looking for a English teacher job in NYC and he said it's impossible... it seems there would be more in NJ... is this possible for you??

        You have to do something you love! For far to long I ventured down a path that was very unforfilling but paid well.

              Wow, no teaching jobs in NY? I thought teaching was one of those fields that is always in demand, much like nursing.

                Secondary... I am actually applying for my masters for Secondary Ed. English right now... but it was after it took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do. I sing, and I always wanted to be a singer, but there are lot of things I am passionate about. You will find it! Trust me!
