B.S. in Sociology; What now? UPDATED 5/9/11 - The Hunt for a Job!
I have a semester left before I complete a Bachelor's of Science in Sociology. About two years ago, I was lurking H/A here and I saw a number of people who recommended Sociology degrees over psychology or political science, saying they were better "multi-purpose" degrees.
At the time I was seriously considering either Psych or Political Science, so with that in mind I changed to a major in sociology with a minor in journalism.
As far as graduate school goes, it's something I'm interested in, but I need at least a year before I can take out any loans and whatnot. My parents paid for my undergrad through a combination of scholarships and a college fund that's now tapped. I have no loans so far (luckily), but they refuse to cosign anything for me.
So, I'll likely be entering the job market come late spring. I want to know what kind of positions I should be looking into, and what kind of work I can expect to find.
A lot of people have been dumping on me for having a "useless" degree, but I'm not concerned with finding a job in my "field." I know that many employers are looking for any type of B.S./B.A. degree, but I just don't know what those positions are and what they entail.
Can anyone help? Does anyone here have a major or minor in soc, with some employment stories they'd like to tell?
