Default Associate degree. job needed. ideas?

So i am working on a BS but have an AA right now and need a job. most of my classes have been biology based and I have plenty of math in my past but I can't think of any kind of job to look for that i might be able to enjoy or at least not want to kill myself working at, if there are even any jobs out there.

I have a two year old and a 4 month old , as well as three eleven year olds from my wife's previous marriage. My wife and I are both students.

so my time is pretty important to me. I love my family and enjoy being with them as much as possible. Any job would have to be worth giving up that time. I don't NEED a job right now but I will before the year is out. I don't it can't be a full time job because of family and school but I just have no ideas of what direction to look in.

help me with your beer fueled ideas.

Past experience: 4 years as a butcher, cooked in a 4 star restaurant in Denali National park, Worked at an in home care business caring for individuals with mental retardation, worked at target warehouse for two years. a few other odds and ends but nothing else substantial.

You haven't mentioned what skills/experience you have. A degree is meaningless (as someone who has a degree but has a completely unrelated job can attest to).

I agree, for example I have no degree, (but only because I have 4 years of school, but keep changing my damned mind), I have extensive schooling in computer science, etc. However I work as a database admin and manufacturing technician because of my work experience. I think it really depends on what you know. I could have a bachelors in basket weaving, but as long as I know how to admin an Oracle or MS DB, that's what I'll be getting paid for!

How about trying to get a job at a local brewpub? Your biology and math courses will definitely be a plus. That's what I'd shoot for. Even if you start out washing kegs, you could quickly move up to assistant brewer, etc.

The three eleven year olds are triplets, from my wife's first marriage.

As much as people talk about the degree not mattering, I think in many instances it does. I work at a small business where no one cares about where you went to school. But larger businesses and the government have a reputation for "credentialism." They want you to have a degree even if it really doesn't affect your ability to do the job.

Do you like food service? I know there are jobs in research for the lab end of things.
