You are going to be OK. You have a tremendous amount of self-knowledge and a ton of learned skills.

What do you want to do? Degrees matter a lot less than they did even 10 years ago. Think of it like an Oscar nomination. Forever after the performers who don’t win are identified as “Academy nominated actor/actress.”

You were accepted and studied at friggin’ Rutgers! Do you know how few people are capable of doing that? Damn few.

What do you want to do? What are you good at? What will people pay you for? Find that out and find a company looking for talent. Offer to come in as a contractor or intern and prove your self. Just be sure it’s something you care about. Otherwise it will be way harder.
