I just graduated with a degree in linguistics from a top school that has a STEM focus. For at least the next year I'll be working in finance. I intend to apply this year for PhD programs in linguistics and am wondering if my job could make me look unfocused, given that it's in an unrelated field. Is this sort of 'time off' damaging to applications?
Is it hard to get a career(job,phd) back in the states if I get a master degrees overseas?
