What is the scope of history as an career in the history field in private sectors other than the regular teaching and archeology
You seem to be a rare bird to think of history as a career.I am happy .If you are already a career man with interest in history,you are more like me and we can be pals.But if you have strayedon to history accidentally,and want to make the best of it,good luck to you. I do not think it is very difficult to make a career of it.But do not go on ogling at the IT,The problem is that you can not show your mettle unless you have some job and the problem is to land the initial one.
Leave alone the career aspect,by being knowledgeable in history makes you sometimes much sought after in any gathering,because you cancommunicate and talk
with a different perspective and wider knowledge.
