Degrees in English or History, unless you're going to be a teacher/writer/researcher, are pretty much useless, IMO. Granted, a candidate with a college degree will get more consideration than another candidate without a degree. However, in so many professional workplaces these days, it's about your experience and skill set that will almost always be the bottom line.
As I said, I'm in the banking/finance field doing sales, so I'm working daily with numbers, calculations, mathematics, ROI, forecasting, etc... which all are totally unrelated to my degree.
But I still kick ass and take names.
Which is...... Im gonna guess Rabble Rousing...... That or Male Hairdresser.
