Isn't it a little late to be asking for a career path *after* you already went more than 2/3rds of the way?
What was the motivation/interest/appeal of the sociology and the masters degree? If you can answer that question, you will know what to do.
Did you jump straight out of your bachelors degree into your Masters program? Or did you work between the two schools? If you did, was that work relevant to the Masters? Or did you switch off completely?
Here's the puzzle: when I am looking to hire an employee, and I know that the position requires a person with a Masters, I am looking for certain green flags:
1. The person has relevant experience.
2. The person worked in the relevant field before going for the Masters.
I also look for certain red flags:
1. Professional students (2-3 bachelor degrees in unrelated fields, 2-3 Master degrees in unrelated fields, a PhD).
2. No relevant work experience before the Masters. That means going for an MBA after finishing a bachelors in art in medieval literature, etc.
Unless you can explain the logical progression between your bachelor and Master degrees you are going to freak out anyone that interviews you.
