Workshop on careers in History

I had a workshop this morning called ‘What to do with a B.A. degree in History?’. After the hour talking about different horizons of career possibilities, I am confident I’ll be able to find something to work in. There was so many types of career I could do (NGO, federal and provincial governments, Libraries, Museums, …) that I really don’t worry about the pertinence of my degree. Doing a degree in History is not pointless nor worthless. I feel reassured. I might not work in the academic field later on, but I will use the critical thinking and analytic skills, the writing and speaking skills in a related field. That’s always good to know.
