    Hi, I'm thinking about doing a French and History joint degree and other than teaching or translating/interpreting, I have no clue on what careers that could lead onto. I've heard about doing a law conversion degree, but is it a good idea?

    The vast majority of graduate jobs do not require a specific degree. You could do a law conversion course, or a thousand other things. I suggest you study something you're interested in and let the careers side of things sort itself out.

    As Snuffkin said the majority of graduate employers just want someone with a degree. These include those in business/marketing, accounting/finance, the Civil Service and charities to name a few areas. What helps secure a job is you is the skills you gained through not only your studies but work experience you gain too.

    A law conversion degree might be a good idea if if a career in law is something you are sure you want to pursue, but not because you don't know what else to do.
