I heard on NPR yesterday that in these “trying economic times”, history majors are having trouble finding jobs.
I have a degree in math, so let me help you out.
Look around you in history class. How many other history majors are there in your class? About 30? Except in undergrad, where there are even more?
OK? For every 30 history students there is approximately one history job. Toss in grade school and high school? Same rule. One teacher, many students. Library? One librarian, many readers.
Do the math. There is always a shortage of history jobs.
Oh, sorry, you don’t do math. Hire a mathematician to do it for you. There’s always a shortage of math jobs.
