I have a file with the list of jobs in each line. each job is a string and it is a line. 5th element in it is degree. I need to count different types of degree in the file for each job. I have 5 different degrees in the file.
I wrote below: but it is not counting total for each job. degrees are repeat some jobs. can you help?

with open("100 Jobs - MedDeviceManuf.txt", 'r') as f:
    for job in f:
        degree = job.rstrip().split(',')[5]    
        types_degree = {}
        if degree in types_degree:
            types_degree[degree] += 1
            types_degree[degree] = 1
        print str(types_degree)
