Think about the skills you've gained through studying history such as: * Understanding/Analyzing issues/events * Excellent written and spoken expression * Putting forward ideas/arguments in a clear and precise manner * Investigating/assessing evidence * Getting conclusions/ideas from research * Organizing materials in a clear and logical manner
Employers care most about your skills you've gained and the specific subject isn't necessarily all that relevant.
As well as the "obvious" things like teaching or working at museums there are many potential opportunities for history graduates. Your skills are highly relevant to various roles in the legal profession, in information sciences (e.g. working in libraries or archives), politics, publishing, journalism, media/advertising, writing, business/commerce, administration to name just a few.
