I am a recent graduate. I hold a Master's degree in structural engineering. My bachelors is in civil engineering. I have accumulated a few internships in the last few years, and acquired a decent know-how in GIS and software programming. This however has NOTHING to do with my major, and there are few (if any) cross-over jobs that require both skillsets.
Should I focus on jobs in my field of study or should I go for jobs which my real-world experience applies to?
I should add that I currently am having a hard time finding a job, partly due to my visa status but also due to the fact that my real world experience does not apply to the jobs I am targetting, rather my diploma does. Again, should I focus on jobs which my diploma says I can do, or to jobs which my modest experience says I can do?
