What's the most prevalent occupation for a recent philosophy graduate in Canada? Retail salespersons and visual merchandisers. That doesn't surprise me a bit, given my own experience as a 7-Eleven clerk. And it just goes to show that while some people (such as nursing, pharmacy and teaching) tend to go straight into their professions after their education, most other people take more time to settle into a profession. "Only a very small number of academic programs were associated with a specific job... Most academic programs were instead linked to several jobs. In many cases, these jobs were at least somewhat related to the program. These results point to the importance for most graduates of developing various skills that could potentially be used throughout their careers." (p.s. it's interesting to note the classifications by National Occupational Classification (NOC) and the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) in this article).
