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.
You can a job in multiple different fields. You can get a job in government, or become a history teacher/history professor.
That would depend on your work experience and your major.
