I'm in the same boat as you are. I am a chef, with two degrees and want out!!! I actually got my property and casualty license and am trying to get into insurance, so i can save up money for my CPA exam. I figured it's better to work two jobs, and make the other one something that is not retail. I actually received more accounting interviews after I got the license. I was told that technically I have a degree in business, so think outside the box. That's the other reason I went for the whole insurance deal. I figured it would show more growth than just staying at my current job until something came along. You might want to give it a shot. I sat down and talked to insurance agents before I took the test. It's really all about just making it work for you, even if you have to stray from the original degree. Just keep your options open.
