Doubt in filling DS 160 for F1 visa

I graduated this august with an engineering degree. I declined my job offers to focus on the visa and bank process. Will be attending university in spring 2017. What should I write in present work/education section ? Some of my friends suggested I write engineering degree itself. But won’t I be writing that in previous education section. I need help.

You can say unemployed or something similar as you are not currently working anywhere.
