Did you daughter visit the career counselor at her college? If the counselor is decent she/he should be able to give her some ideas. Hopefully your daughter has a writing portfolio along with some internships. If she did a minor that may help get her a decent job while she writes. She can also visit the local library or Amazon and get a book on jobs for English majors. If all else fails, she could go to grad school. Library Science may hold some interest for her.

Its summer, I'm at the beach laying in the sun, trying to forget my past, then he comes, a boy I thought I would never see again, he tells me he loves me and that he has always loved me, I can feel his words, precious gems, inside me filling the cracks in my soul and mending my broken heart I know that's short, but I'm not going to do your homework for you, I'm just going to give you a place to start

She can get an MFA, teach English, or go to law school. In addition, she can do many other things with a college degree. I majored in history, got an MFA, went to law school. This is the 21st century. No need to feel boxed into a particular field of study or work. Most importantly, she should figure out what she wants to do and then go for it. If she likes creative writing, why not get an MFA?

She can work as an editor for any type of magazine, publishing company, web page, etc. She could work at any company which needs to write manuals, which are most companies, i.e. Boeing. Basically, she can use it to work in any office where you need to use the English language.

You can become a writer (not just for books, but for tv shows and other things), she can become a publisher, a teacher (not just in school, you know) or magazine journalist. Just wanted to throw out a couple of ideas out there Hope it helped

I have a bachelor's degree in English. Biggest waste of money, ever. For me, anyway. Now that she's followed her fancy, wish her luck in getting a real job.

Go for Mac. Most flexible computer out there. And being a Graphics Department Supervisor, I can tell you that 80% of the graphics designers in the world use Macs. They get it DONE and there are no network issues. We have about 90% Macs in our business, and two PC's. Only the PC's have problems with the network, and down time. Get the Mac, and load Adobe Creative Suite on it, and you'll be a very happy camper.
