People with a degree in Psychology have no jobs for them here, and it's viewed as a completely soft subject nowadays. Is it the same in the US?

NeedMoreEmo said:All the people I know want to talk to kids with schizophrenia or do criminal profiling. Good luck to them finding a job doing that. I've given up trying to tell them going for psychology will get them nowhere.
