If you majored in liberal arts or the soft sciences, was your degree profitable career-wise?
Why? Why not?
Bachelor's degree - no.
Master's degree - likely yes (haven't finished it yet but am constantly going over job postings and there's always a bunch that pay very well).
Personally I knew going into my Bachelor's degree that I was going to need a Master's at least to get any solid job in the field I wanted, I knew it was going to be a ~10 year commitment on my part and I have always been okay with that! I think it's important to check out the realistic job opportunities before you enter into a degree, I can't imagine how bummed I would have been to finish a four year degree expecting to have a great job right away and to suddenly discover "oh, this is actually gonna take another 4+ years of school, oops."
