A big problem with a lot of this work experience is at times there was low job satisfaction or I didn’t find it closely enough related to my career choice. I also made minimum wage in a lot of the prior described jobs or commission which was not enough to afford important things like independent living, recreational activities and travelling. What I would like moving forward from jobs is a lot more responsibility, a higher wage and job security. A lot of the prior mentioned jobs had employee firings as frequent occurrences even when attempts had been made to resolve problems.


More important than anything, I want to start on a career track at an advertising agency or I want to continue servicing my own clients and their ad campaigns. If I go back to school I will be adding Business administration and Marketing to my all ready existing educational background. 

So as the title asks, “Do you think going back to school is the right move to get on my career track?”
