An advanced degree is its own reward
- I did get an advanced degree and it helped considerably in my nonprofit career. I immediately was able to land a higher paying job, and I think the degree brought me more respect. But, the degree was rewarding far beyond just a better job. I would have been happy with it even if it hadn't advanced my career.
