I did some freelance work for the thing I had studied, didn’t do that for long. I later got a job unrelated to that, which I quite enjoyed.

I graduated in 2013

If I had not done the course, would not be able to get the job I have now

My job is technical data science and research in STEM

But it’s a humanities and social science degree I have

5 years professional experience means the same as a technical degree

Some people I work with have phds and masters degrees

I did gain employment with my Master in Economics as an analyst in the corporate world. But that was pre-sz. After my first psychosis I only worked over half a year fulltime before I had to call it quits.

I m sorry for all those of you who did nt get a work after you finished your degree. I understand how hard that most be. Afterall I was in the same boat as you. I really never fit anywhere neather at working or educating places. So at age 24 I quit my 2. And last works I had. The last 5 years I ve spend learning the interpreters Python and Lua ( programming languages). But as you know. They layoff coders every where so there are no works there.

I quit full-time work age 25. So I only worked for 4 years.

People with no mental health issues seem to have long careers!

I’ve worked 3 years straight with out a condition after a year in college equivalent. But worked 12 years in 15 after diagnosis but at about 10-12 different employers. So 1 employer every 1.5 years roughly… that’s why I’ve opted to switch to a mh role where I can feel a little less anxiety etc

I’m pretty sure I would have been better off, not getting the degree I chose, because I probably would have taken an easier job that paid better.
