I am interested in the answer to this question as well. I have the same questions about myself.

Of course you are qualified for all kinds of jobs. Most jobs don't require any special education, just that you be smart and hard-working and able to work with people. Having a masters in anything helps. And being able to write well really helps. If I could become "Capital Campaign Consultant" for a major NYC social service organization with my undergrad degree in Science and Technology Studies, I think you can pretty much get whatever job you want.

The main thing is having a really good cover letter that dispells all of their doubts about your qualifications. You can always think of a way that, say, your experience organizing concerts in your basement translates into your capacity to organize major fundraising events.
