I hate my major as a senior. What should I do now?

I only have 12hrs left in my major and 36hrs left in my degree. If I stay, I'll graduate next spring with a BA in sociology. However, I hate my major, and it doesn't really give you many career options except being a research assitant or a receptionist. Both of which sound like hell on earth. I know the smart answer would be to cut my losses and switch majors. Except I really have no idea what I want to do or what I would want to major in. Should I finish my degree in soc and try to find a career, or just take a break from school until I figure out what degree to get? How did you guys figure out what to major in?

There are plenty of careers out there that don't really care what you majored in; sales, marketing, human resources, most non-... More
