Kelsey’s Answer

I majored in classics, specifically ancient history/religion, and I'm currently working in marketing. The important thing is to get a degree, and studying something you enjoy or are passionate about will go a LONG way. I may not use my knowledge of Greek Mythology on a daily basis, but I use the skills I learned while studying as a history major. I know how to research a topic, look at an event from different points of view, and how to communicate effectively (from in class discussions and writing papers). Realistically, the most important thing is that you have a Bachelors degree, it shows you have the drive and self-discipline to complete 4 years of school. If you can get a job using your history knowledge, that's amazing, but a lot of those jobs will require an advanced degree such as a Masters or even PHD. An important thing to remember is that a lot of times you need to put in time at an entry level job to move up within a company. For example, after I graduated from college I started at Verizon Wireless as a customer service rep, then moved into sales, and operations, and only now, 7 years later I'm in marketing at HQ.

Jillian’s Answer

I have a degree in history and have been both a teacher and worked in operations at a telecommunications company. Honestly, you take what you learn from experiences and use those to really figure out what you want to do. You MBA would be more specific and History is a good base - politics, law, business, marketing... the list goes on.
