My gut reaction here is that your degree doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with your career path. Especially after your first job or two.
If you are interested in a career in Politics (which can lead to International Affairs positions), then make sure your internships and extracurriculars reflect that.
If you are interested in a career in the Government, you might want to look into being a Forensic Analyst, or something along those lines.
You can look into taking a role with the UN – they
If you like helping people, you could look into Mission Work. People are needed around the world to teach, to train, to work.
If you like getting dirty, try going into archaeology. You’ll spend most of your time traveling to different locations around the world, learning different cultures.
And, of course, you could always go into a career with airlines or hospitality.
I think the idea is that you come up with a job you are interested in, and then start looking into internships trying that out.
