Communications is a death sentence these days. Or at least a one way ticket to working at the grocery store for 40 years.
It's funny because of how they sell it as a degree that lets you do so much....but specialize in nothing. I can work a video camera, take high quality photos, write and edit newspaper articles, design an ad campaign, write a filming schedule...probably some other stuff...
But I only ever had one or two classes in each one of those things. I don't know if it's like that at every school, but ours made it nearly impossible to specialize, and that hurts you looking for a job.
My best friend has a communications degree as well. He's currently jobless, some 7 months out of school. No nibbles. That's not shocking at all, obiviously. What is a little surprising, is that he's just bumming right now and doesnt have a job of any real sort yet. He's planning to go back to school to get into coaching, which is no easy task, either.
