    I'm pretty sure this degree can provide you with a wide range of jobs. I've heard that geography looks good to employers because it teaches you research skills/essay writing skills etc. Before becoming a teacher, my geography teacher worked in technology, and a few of the other geography teachers have left to work in industry so yeah there's a lot you can do

    The subject doesn't even matter for 80% of careers. As long as it isn't something specific like medicine, you can take steps to get to any job including law, accountancy, teaching, etc.

    Ask yourself what you'd like to do and take the necessary steps to get there.
