Did you get a job in your field of study?

I phrased the question wrong which in turn gave me closed answers.

So....

Edit1:What do you study?
Edit 2: What is your dream job/career?

This makes me sad and scared at the same time, spending all that time and money to be in debt studying something you love but with a very low chance of getting a job in that field of study...more needs to be done for undergrads

Yes albeit it isn't a job that realistically requires a degree, some working have one some don't. Happy to continue with it for a few years then see what's about (if going up the pay scale/other opportunities within the company aren't doing enough for me).

There is a poor chance of a job in something you love paying well. Reason being that if you love it, others are likely to love it as well and so willing to work for less.

Basically you'll very quickly realise a huge majority of adults work jobs to pay the bills.. not because they enjoy the work. Sorry to be the bringing of bad news

I haven't even started uni but as I'm gonna do philosophy I can already tell you that the answer for me will be a massive no.

When all hope is lost, remember that mattress testing requires no qualifications.

This is why I picked a degree I know for a fact can lead directly into the job that I want and is accredited by the organisation that controls who is allowed to have that job.
