If you are going to school at a liberal arts college and can't get a job because you majored in something that there aren't jobs for... you're on your own. Even if you went to a liberal arts school you're on your own because they don't promise crap.
I don't think liberal arts majors are at a big time disadvantage as some are led to believe. I've had friends who graduated with degrees in history, philosophy, and political science and entered the workplace in business and entertainment law, for example. Fact is, often times what you study in college isn't what you wind up doing 5-10 years later. Just like how it's somewhat of a rarity to find a company man these days, it's also commonplace for folks to have made two or more career changes in their lifetimes.
Dern Liberal arts jobs. Bunch em hippies!
I have a liberal arts degree and have been employeed since I left college in 2003 in a field (Computers) that I don't have a degree in. Communications is a pretty decent degree if you know how to use it. For 1 you tend to interview very well.
