"Hopefully" is a pretty shaky foundation to build a career on. That said, I'll do something for 2 weeks to "hopefully" get a job out of it, but not 2 years.

If you think it's going to be any easier with a few extra letters after your name, you're wrong. There's a lot of "John Doe BA MA PhD"s flipping burgers right now to prove that.
