    if you don't mind me asking, what kind of job did you get?
    was it the first job you got after graduating? and how long did it take you to find a job that you wanted?
    Actually when I graduated, it seemed like there weren't a lot of options in the cities.
    I took the first job offered to me.
    Which was a lower paying Support role at an IT company offering school applications.
    I only worked there 6 months and a great job came through which i jumped at.
    I'm a consultant now for a computer software company in Edina.
    I love what I do, and like Nodak said, it doesn't matter how much you get paid, you have to like your job or you won't be there very long, the days get longer and each day will get harder to go in.

    So in the end, it's not always necessary to hold out for the perfect job after graduation, sometimes it's nice to take a job and roll with it, you never know where you'll end up.
    Especially at a company where there might be a lot of growth potential and you just have to deal with the grunt work, but that will pay dividends in the end.

    I was gonna do CS then CIS - but no calculus and the ability to work with people led to MIS.

    Course now I'm a psychologist....
    That is funny.
    My first degree was in psychology, and now I am a software engineer.
    My degree is in History and Econ.
    I have been a DBA, a software instructor and now I test.
    Really doesn't matter if you know how to think.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
