I'm completing a postgrad in a historical subject- vaguely i know options include: continue study, go into teaching/academia, work for historical or heritage organisations in admin/writer roles... journalism maybe.

What are your personal experiences if you've studied similar subjects?

Any other ideas?

I did my undergrad in History and have just started in a policy role at the Home Office. I think that History is quite a popular (and helpful) degree in the Civil Service if you're interested in that route.

I did a more archaeological based course, but my friends - well, those who aren't unemployed or working in retail - work in visual merchandising and politics. One is the assistant to an MP.
