No Experience Necessary
Question by Terrell11: Just received an MBA from University of Phoenix. What jobs should I be looking for that will match the degree?
Currently have a full time management position, however, the position doesn’t pay much. I would like to find something that will at least pay between 50,000 to 75,000. Currently in higher ed.

You are in a difficult situation unfortunately. UP is not well respected by employers. There is also great difficulty in moving from education into business unless you are doing something very specialized and universally needed such as accounting. I am surprised to hear of higher ed management jobs that pay under 50K. You may be best off looking in an urban area if you live in a rural area and are willing to move once you have been hired. (Don’t move until you have been hired and have that commitment in writing.) The higher pay and better promotional opportunities will offset the higher cost of living except in San Francisco and New York City.
