Hey y’all! I have a bachelors in business administration with a concentration in management and finance, and I am now back in school to get my MBA. I been working for about 2 years but haven’t been able to get myself a good salary job. I live in Washington DC area and rent, bills and life is so expensive that I don’t seem to be able to keep up. Thinking about shifting or incorporating IT, maybe project management. Any advice??

What is your current job title? And also, what are your interests. I get wanting to pivot for financial reasons, but you should probably narrow down a field that actually interests you as well, otherwise you'll be making decent money but miserable in your job.

If you are interested in project management, I would suggest taking project management courses on LinkedIn Learning. Take on special projects at your current job so you have project management experience for your resume.
Also you don’t need an MBA for project management. I would not pursue an MBA unless you have a clear career path where you know that it will pay off. I wouldn’t do it as a hobby or because you can’t figure out what you want to do next work wise.
