What do you di with a BA in English? ; Avenue Q"
What do you do with a B.A. in English,
What is my life going to be?
Four years of college and plenty of knowledge,
Have earned me this useless degree.
I can't pay the bills yet,
'Cause I have no skills yet,
The world is a big scary place.
But somehow I can't shake,
The feeling I might make,
To the human race!"
Haha, sorry it reminded me of that song! ;D
I have a BA in English. The beauty of one is that it improves your articulation and communication skills immensely (at least it did mine!), which are excellent qualities to prospective employees, so always make sure you sell them when trying to get a job!
I used mine to get into a fast-track journalism school. I'm not sure how journalism works in the USA, but over here you need to complete your NCTJs, which is what I did. Then I used that to get me some internships with papers and magazines. I've got one coming up in August. It hasn't yet led to full term employment! (but that's mainly because of the current recession. There are no jobs anwhere, let alone in journalism right now!) but one day it will help me out, yo!!! haha. So just keep looking and trying!
