    Sort of... I majored in English w/a print media concentration, with the intention of becoming a rock n roll/music journalist. After graduation it became clear that most, if not all, jobs in that vein were on a freelance basis. I work for a newspaper now, but not in a writing capacity (I work "behind the scenes" in the production dept.) ... I do writing mainly as a hobby.

    Not in the least. I have a B.S. Human Services with a concentration in Management and an MBA with a concentration in Leadership. I am working in neither field at the time.

    Absolutely. I am an RN and I have a bachelors degree in nursing, with a minor in business. It worked out well for my career.

    No. I have a BA in Organizational Communications and an MA in Theology. I haven't come close to a great career or money in either. In fact, where I've made the most money I never needed a degree. I was working alongside men and women who hardly got out of high school and we were raking in wheelbarrows of money!

    Yes, my college degree matched my career the day I graduated from college. I fortunately gained some experience during my high school years working as a lab assistant before entering college. As a result this made it a lot easier for me to work my entire career matched to my training to become a chemist after receiving a degree in chemistry. Also fortunately for me things were a lot different when I first got of out of college when it came time to find jobs. They were plentiful at the time.

      Ithabise, thanks for reading my comment. I often try to inspire younger folks to move forward because the world has a lot to offer.

    Honestly no. I majored in Animal Science and am currently working as an online content writer. It has something to do though with the original course I was planning to take up (Development Communication) before I shifted to Animal Science.

    It used to.  I majored in History, and I taught school(History) for 11 years.  Although I didn't major in Education.
    Now, I sit in a cubicle and test computer systems.  Sometimes I apologize to my parents for spending all that money.
