What jobs can I get with an English degree?
« on: May 07, 2014, 09:37:20 am »
With my junior year coming to a close, my parents want me to know where I wanna go and what I wanna do, but……I don't know what I wanna do. I want to get an English degree, but then what? What jobs can I get?
I consider myself a lone wolf, but I don't mind a friend or two to talk with. I also happen to be a writer.

I know that my teacher had an English degree and worked as a technical editor before she got her teaching degree.

IMO, because so much of academia is writing, I think It would be Better to get a degree somewhere else and minor in English.

On achieving your degree in English, you should be able to get a job in teaching foreign students the English language. Apply to language schools in your area. :)

My boyfriend's friend has an English [teaching] degree, and he teaches English as a second language. Its awesome though because he gets to travel to other countries on work and teach them English  :lol-fox: Like, he spends a month in Japan every so often, and I think he's in China right now?
