Research and policy in a sector that interests you -- defense, education, labor, public health. Look at research organizations like WestEd, Westat, AIR, AERA, The Advisory Board. You do need a background in conducting social science research, familiarity with quantitative and qualitative methods, and experience with statistics programs like SPSS or NVivo. You should have a body of work already done for your master's coursework so that will help you as well.

How about drug and alcohol counseling? That looks like a rewarding career.

(Can you tell that I've watched a lot of episodes of Intervention?)
