What career opportunities are there (besides teaching) for someone with a BA in history?

I am currently a social studies teacher, but would like to change career while still working within the skill set of my degree.

My B.A. in English was really useful before I became a teacher. I sold TVs, VCRs, then futon furniture. (But getting an English degree really wasn't about career opportunities, and I don't regret getting it.)

invest on other field! Go schooling or take units on other field during your off-teaching time. (ito din kasi ang plano ko, bsed -history din ako). think of it!

Just say Barrista. Those geeks with the pocket protectors who took lots of math are pulling in six figures now.
