What can ya do with an English degree?
Still, people persist in being interested in the arts, in language, in expression, in lofty goals of thinking and philosophy, despite the lack of a call for philosophers these days.
CareerBuilder says not to worry--a degree in English can still feed you. How about becoming an adult literacy or GED teacher?
Or English as a Second Language--you don't need to know the other languages, you can still teach it--they will train you.
You can become an editor. Do you think all these reams of internet and printed materials organize themselves? Many writers can't even spell these days.
You could also be a paralegal--which involves a lot of organized thinking and writing.
Or--a technical writer. You will figure out and write instructional books and manuals, as well as white papers.
What's a white paper? You'll find out.
