If you go to some college web sites and go to the philosophy department they sometimes will list what other graduate students have done with their degree. Have colleges mail you out information on that major too.

I've known some people with history and philosophy degrees who work for the government overseas. They are usually consulates of embassies and they work in the diplomatic field with a lot of benefits in foreign countries, think about it... It seems worth it! :)
