Hi Aida, English is super important in many facets of the world and workplace. Although it seems rather "general," there are a lot of opportunities for English majors. Check out this website, which uses US government data, to find out where there are some possibilities for your degree: https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=english+major I would also recommend talking to your professors and Career Counselors about what they recommend. Depending on where you are located in the US, you may have more opportunities. Also, with an increasing number of people working remotely, it may not even be a big issue if you want to live somewhere and work for a company that's in a different state. Good luck! Let me know if you have any other questions!
