Hi there!  Congratulations on getting your associates degree.  Education of all kinds is valuable and will help you in pursuit of your future.  When you get a general studies degree you have a lot of options.  What I would suggest is to get serious about making lists of organizations, companies and industries you are interested in being a part of.  See where your lists match up and check out the websites, networking opportunities, meet ups, LinkedIn Groups...etc. that are frequented by people already on the path you are interested in. 

This is a time for community!  You should never underestimate the information you can get from looking at the LinkedIn profiles of people you encounter who seem like they've got it together!  How did they pursue their goals?  Internships, first jobs as a __________ (fill in the blank with an awesome entry level job)?  You are going to blaze your own path, but why not check out the people who have come before you!  I have been a recruiter a long time and I don't know every job that is out there!  You will be surprised all the ways for you to get your foot in the door using your new degree.

Best of luck!

Great question and congrats on getting an associates degree! The Career Services department at your school should be able to help you find a career path that’s right for you! You can always ask them about post graduate data because they should have an idea of where students in your degree chose to work after graduating and the positions they were hired for. Just like Stephanie mentioned, another way you could search for this information would be to go to LinkedIn and find alumni from your program. Once you find alumni look at their LinkedIn profiles and look into their career path. Good luck with the search!
