You begin a career with a mildly useless degree like professional writing by starting at the bottom. If you want to work in publishing, get a job as a secretary or mail room clerk at a publishing office. If you want work as a writer, get a real job, and write for free in your spare time.

There are several jobs for those with an English degree that tend to get overlooked. 1. Technical librarian 2. Editor or 'reviewer' of an online publication 3. With a little background research on search engine function, help websites do 'search engine optimization' 4. English teacher for the adult level, especially one on one conversation practice

Be open to job opportunities which may not match your degree. Few English majors or philosophy majors actually work directly in those fields. Some professional writers write press releases or company manuals as a day job and spend their spare time working on more creative writing for possible publication.
