I'm 24 years old, recently graduated from a state school in Portland, Ore., with a bachelor's degree in English and a minor in Writing. Problem is, I'm much more interested in public policy than teaching, and have almost no work experience and undergraduate coursework to apply to a master's degree in public policy. What would you recommend I do in the next year?

You should see what kind of work experience you can attain that is relevant to a career in public policy. You can also see if your local community college - or your alma mater - offers coursework that you can take in support of a career in public policy. It's OK to take classes for professional development, even if they are not for a degree.
