What level of education does your dream job require? - October 14th 2014, 08:00 PM

What level of education/degree does your dream job have, and what level of education do you have now?

I know that our countries refer to these degrees differently but I'm uncultured so please try to find the closest match!

For example, my dream job only requires a high school diploma, and I have my Bachelor's Degree.

Love these questions!

I have a bachelorís degree in Educational Studies and English and my dream job (primary school teacher) requires me to have a postgraduate degree (PGCE- Post Graduate Certificate of Education) in primary education. A PGCE consist of work placement in a primary school and assignments at Masters Level, so I selected the Ďotherí option. I could have done a degree with QTS at the end (Qualified Teacher Status) instead of my 3 year degree and postgrad on top, but I preferred this way of doing it

I am not entirely sure what I want to do yet, but the two careers I am interested in can be done with a doctorate. It depends on what I want to do in the particular fields, of course, but I either want to be an English professor with a PhD or a therapist with one. I definitely want to be an author on the side though.

I'm currently a junior in college. I am hoping to get my bachelor's degree in Biology and I hope to get a job that works with the environment, conservation or biotechnology. I am still thinking about pursuing a master's degree, but it is still a possibility.

At least a Master's if I want to progress in it. I'd love a doctorate someday though! Right now I am a freshman in my undergraduate year!

My dream job requires at least a Bachelor's degree. I can work with an Associate's, but it'd be better paid if I have a higher degree. I'm a sophomore in college right now, and I do plan to get my Master's someday.

My dream job actually doesn't require any degree at all.
My plan B-dream job requires I guess some kind of equivalent to a highschool degree.
I have made my A-levels and currently am working on my bachelor degree. Don't ask me why^^


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

I'm going into public health. I don't exactly have a dream job, and there are some jobs within public health really only needing a bachelors (such as some types of case workers, managers, nonprofit workers, etc) but I plan on getting my masters.

My dream job? Well, requires at least Masters, plus teaching qualifications (Grad Dip in my case), and two years experience or more working in schools.

I've posted off my final assessment and should graduate (again) in December. Applying for jobs already Realistically I'll be lucky to get some short term contract work during 2015, then apply for permanent jobs. Tough work to get into


Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.
