It's all about the legwork, friends. There's almost nothing in life you can't land with a little hustle, but if you think your fucked just because you have a social science or humanities degree, you're not going to go far in anything you do.
From what I've observed, it's not that a humanities degree precludes you from getting a decent job, it's that those degrees simply do not open any doors for you. It's great that you found a good job based on your hustle and other personal traits, but that's not an endorsement of your degree so much as it reflects on you as a person. I'd speculate that pairing your personal virtues with a useful degree, like engineering or computer science degree, would have raised your ceiling immensley. When you spend 4 years and tens of thousands, I think you should expect to be learning a skill set that will make you a desired commodity upon graduation.
