Awww, honey, you'll see. One of these old days, you'll exit the ivory tower, perhaps even obtain a real job where you...you know, have to do stuff to get food. Don't be askeered, little feller. Most places, the boss doesn't wear the shiny brass. But you should ask if they did, in case they might have had their moral compass de-calibrated at some point in the past. and you can then select other employment opportunities if necessary. I do not recommend anything directly involving agriculture or food services, though. It involves many, many things that used to be alive but aren't now. The existential crisis might be a little rough for a newb. Surprisingly, I will also not suggest federal employment, because even though the production quotas tend to be lower and time for various seminars and presentations high - and you would certainly be afforded the opportunity to learn all about contractors, veterans get certain hiring preferences. So, you know. Again, not ideal. I know the philosopher's quill might seem a strong draw, but it tends not to pay very well, and you would end up chewing on your thoughts more than actual sustenance.
I'm thinking ...retail. Or perhaps a live customer service desk. I know, I know! All those unwashed masses! And they....want you to do things for them! But look at it this way - it'll be great training for that Great American Novel lurking in the back of your head. The exchange of symbolic food for stuff, and stuff they want to return for symbolic food. Really, a great opportunity to watch human motivations in action, day after day after day and year upon year. No politicians, not an ivory tower within viewing distance as a rule. You'll learn not to tell them about your irrelevant degrees pretty quickly. Trust your co-workers. They will guide you. Just...get out there and go for it, baby! The world is your....(aw, dayam. You probably hate oysters. Some morally depraved soul has murdered them, too.)
Well. Just do your best. But don't stay in the tower! It's not good to never let your feet touch the ground.
