I am not paying tuition, so that's nice. I have a friend who went into economics and he can't find a job either. I imagine that's a rather brutal market as well. If I'm being honest I don't really care about job prospects. I just want to do history. Thankfully my financial situation isn't impacted much either way. If it were I might have gone into business.
If you love it, and it sounds like you do, then best of luck!
