How flexible is an engineering degree?

It would be versatile in any in any technical position.

Look at a degree like History, everyone jokes how useless it is but in reality if you look thru LinkedIn there are a lot of people teaching, working in HR, working in sales, working as supervisors, Event Planners, Editors, Writers, Journalists, etc. Not none of those are very related to a history degree except maybe teacher.

With an engineering degree, if there is any job out there that may be considered technical, from being an analyst to being an accountant, you could interview that you are able to do the job. Of course there will be a larger learning curve than someone with a related degree, but it is doable.
