I have a bachelors degree in ABA and I’m working on a masters in other psychology. But what else can I apply my bachelors of science to? Because it doesn’t earn me anything in ABA anymore and I don’t want to do ABA now anyway. I love the ABA concept but I don’t like the way it is used and I’d love to apply it to another place. #jobsearch #advice #careerchange #education #healthcare #careeradvice #ABA #psychology #bachelors

Hi Samatha, Well, I can understand where you are coming from; I also studied ABA in the past and practiced as a behavioral analyst technician in the space. As you know, in ABA, you get a vast knowledge of the learning theory. So depending on where you see yourself and find the most fulfilling is key. Navigate further into healthcare, special needs teaching, even in government sectors, as an FBI analyst. Also, if you are still in school, reach out to your advisor, and I'm sure they can help you source some significant additional roles where you can still take the concepts you learn and know and apply them in a different space, along with learning even more. Best wishes moving forward!

I have been out of work for nearly three years. I have been job hunting day in and day out for the majority of those three years. I have two college degrees and a masters degree. Either I get no replies back from an application that I've submitted or I get that I'm overqualified/under qualified. My degree is in social work but I made the decision long ago to leave that field. However, with jobs being so hard to come by (apparently), I haven't limited myself. I have literally applied to nearly every field- from retail, to social services, to hospitality, to banks, etc. Anything at this point will do but no one is biting.

I've written and re-written my resume and cover letters more times than I can count. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I should have been volunteering or taking classes of some kind while I searched for work the last three years- I get that. But I thought that all my time should be devoted to finding a job. (I realize now how wrong I was.)

I just wish that someone would just give me a chance. I have great references but no one will even let me get to that far. I have gone to temp agencies, head hunters, etc. Nothing.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am having a really hard time dealing with emotional toll this is taking on me- not to mention the financial difficulties.

Thanks in advance!

Best, Mara
