Hit the Books or Follow My Dream Job

Savvy Community: Hit the Books or Chase My Dream Job?

This post was shared by reader glitter345 in our Ask Savvy group.

I am a recent college grad who has been searching for her dream job (or any job within my major) for months. Since graduation I have moved back home and am working at my parents' company. After college I had wanted to either work in my degree field or go on to get my masters. My parents have discouraged me from getting my masters and instead suggested I go for a law degree instead. I was hesitant, but decided to pursue it. Very soon I will be taking the LSAT law school admissions test, and I still don't know if I want to go to law school. As a back up plan, I started sending out my résumé to future employers, and I have received some responses for an interview. The job requires me to move to another state, but I am scared that if I tell my parents, they will accuse me of being wishy-washy about my life and about law school. I am not sure what to do. I want to follow my dream job, but I don't want to be a disappointment to my family, after all, they did help me pay for LSAT tutoring and the actual exam.

Ask anything career- or budget-related — well, almost anything — by posting your questions in the Ask Savvy group, and readers and I will weigh in to support you.
