I agree 100% with Ken Simmons about finding out who you are and how well you fit with the job.
I do not have a degree in Linguistics, but I took an introductory class in it 35 years ago.
You expressed concern about getting a job after graduation. People who hire workers are looking to get a problem solved. Let me ask you some questions, the answers to which might help you.
What kinds of problems do linguists solve? Who has those problems, where and when do they occur? How often do those problems arise? (in otherwords, how big is the market of getting those kinds of problems solved. In addition to linguistics skills, what other skills are needed to solve those kinds of problems?
What kinds of problems do you like to solve? What jobs are there that let you solve those problems on a regular basis? What additional skills do you need to solve those kinds of problems?
Good luck in finding the right pair of shoes (the right career).
