As I reach the end of my Bachelor journey, I am faced with another dilemma. Due to budget issues, the teaching market in Texas is abysmal. I can get a job, but it would mean a massive pay cut from what I am currently earning; such a cut would render it difficult (though possible) to live. I dislike my current occupation, but as I descend deeper into the rabbit hole (philosophically speaking) of moral relativity, I get more and more ok with it. So, what do I do now? What utility can anyone here find in a BMS (concentrations in Biology, Composite Science, and Liberal Arts) beyond education? Should I push for a Masters that complements it in hopes of someday breaking into academia or some other as-of-yet unexplored field? I have no interest in investing another 2-5 years and $$ for a crapshoot at an adjunct position. Is there a logical next step that would lead me to a different career? OR, should I just keep my head low, be happy that I have a job that (for now) pays pretty well, and retest the educational waters next fall? The thing that troubles me with this approach is the loss of momentum. Perhaps that's a silly thing to worry about. What I do know is that I am not prepared to enter a full-scale masters program in education or teaching with the current uncertainty in that market, unless I first secured a reasonable salary in the field. Sorry for the disjointed nature of the post. I don't have time to proofread right now.
