Robert Said:What kinds of jobs/careers are available for an International Studies major?
We Answered:"Also, it's been said that nowadays as long as you have a degree, any degree, you can work in almost any field...really?"
Absolutely NOT. The actual degree you have is key. They HAVE to be in needed job areas and they have to be specific, like Nursing. Broad and general degrees are not worth much, unless you plan on furthering your education or you have some kind of connection to a great job. This forum is filled with people who are confused as to why they cannot find jobs with broad degrees. It is because employers want skills, not a piece of paper. Yes, there are needed degrees that will attract employers, but definitely not a lot of them.
Employers want experience above all. I am seeing more and more ads that say something like "BA and 2 years of experience OR 5 years of experience." Obviously, nursing or something else that requires a degree is not going to be an issue. But degrees in the arts and other areas where experience is able to be subsituted will prove to be a waste of time for many people.
As for your degree, I think you should try to get an internship so that you have something to make your resume more attractive. I don't know where you live, but where I am, there are never ads, public service or otherwise, asking for your major. There are jobs that want a BA in anything, where you would work for a state or county, but these tend to be very competitive and would involve a test in most cases. It really depends on where you live. You may have to consider moving after graduation.
