    Have a Factory Job that I hate, what should I do?
    I just started in working in a factory job last week and I hate to say it but it is mind-numbing work. Got a social work degree last December and having trouble finding a job where I'm located (Upper Peninsula of Michigan). What should I do? Quit and find another job? Move to some place (city) where there is more jobs in my field?

    Do you have a bachelor's or an MSW? Have you checked out hospitals, nursing homes, health-care rehabs, schools, and other places that hire social workers?

    Jobs are hard to come by right now. I wouldn't move on, or move away, until you have something else in place.

    Well for one I would have to pay out-of-state tuition if I went to school right away! Plus I really have no money since I haven't been working, so the living situation would be kind of rough! Just don't want to make a mistake that I can't get out of!

    If you can't afford to go back to school, can't afford to move, then the answer seems pretty clear to me.
