Job Families: 

Couldn’t I have gotten some of these jobs without a graduate degree?

  • Perhaps. Employers hire based upon skills, knowledge and industry needs, not necessarily from your education level. For example, to be a copywriter in general, does not require a Master's or PhD, but it may if the company in question manufactures lab equipment, thus making use of your writing skills and specialized knowledge. Remember that a graduate degree provides you with unique skills and areas of expertise than can earn you a higher salary and make you a more ideal candidate for a number of positions.
