In this thread, which is about “Women’s Studies” and “Gender Studies” majors, it was mentioned that one thing that graduates with such degrees can do is find jobs that require a bachelor’s degree in any subject.
What are some of those jobs? I believe that one of them is becoming a Commissioned Officer in the US Military, in the sense that if you already have a degree, you can enlist under the expectation that you will go straight to Officer Candidate School after Boot Camp and will become an officer if you pass, etc. E.g. you could major in Music with a concentration in Piano and then become a Lieutenant in the Army with it. I’ve also heard that some Law Enforcement/Peace Officer/LEO jobs may qualify. Are there any other jobs?
For the purpose of this question, I am talking about jobs where the substantial qualifier is the degree itself, not any specific subject matter of study or work experience beyond the obvious knowledge, wisdom, and experience one would necessarily get by finishing a bachelor’s degree (it’s not a walk in the park). It is acceptable if the job requires on-the-job training once hired (e.g. military boot camp and OCS) or if it requires general aptitudes such as being able to pass a test or convincing a hiring manager that you aren’t obviously unsuitable.
E.g. a job for which the requirements are “Must have a bachelor’s degree in any field, be good with kids (in general, as opposed to having X years of professional experince working with kids), have no felony criminal record, and be able to be at work at 7 AM” fits. A job for which the requirements are, “Must have a bachelor’s degree in any field and have at least three years experience in Human Resources” does not count.
Jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree are mostly out, though I will permit jobs that have alternate qualifiers, one of which is the bare possession of a bachelor’s degree as above and another requires more experience. E.g. a position where the requirements are, “Candidate must either have a bachelor’s degree in any subject or at least three years experience in retail customer service.”
For the purpose of this question, the terms “job” and “career” are interchangeable. I am interested in both “jobs” and “careers” that fit the descriptors.
Also, please don’t nitpick my question and please give it an ordinary meaning. Basically, the question is, “I have a bachelor’s degree. What jobs can I get with it that aren’t necessarily related to my major and that don’t require prior experience in that field.”
