    To be honest, I think you're going about this backwards. The right order of things is to figure out what you want to do with your life, then see whether you need a degree to get you there and if so which one.

    1. Conduct human resource research for federal, state, county, city and foreign governments.
    2. Conduct human resource research for corporations.
    3. Incorporate yourself and then hire yourself out as a consultant to conduct this kind of research for those who are willing to pay for your work.

    Next question please.

    Well, you could run a Human Services agency but I don't think that you need a PhD for that sort of job.

    You could join the tons of other people with unusable degrees......Unless the late nights and truck loads of cash lost are worth it so you can have your partner call you doctor ??
