Ask the university. If they are charging you thousands of dollars for the course, they should be able to justify it. After all, they work at a university.

Unfortunately you picked something that is very broad and careers that people from business, math, engineering, etc backgrounds can also apply to. Whatever you do, do not go back to University for more schooling. Honestly, I don't know where you go from here. Keep applying, improve your resume, and simply work hard at the job search. Maybe you have some people in your networks that can help you.

That'll be funny if they actually put that up online.

Could someone please tell me what jobs are offered with these two programs?
Jobs aren't offered with any degree. All I can say is good luck with those very general and very saturated degrees.

Most of time they open a rec position so they can hire internally, rip all the poor souls who applied hoping to land a hydro one job.

The administration will say anything to get your money. Do independent research from reliable sources, don't waste time asking the university anything.

Thanks in advance!
How old are you? Do you have a family? Debt? Mortgage? Are you tied down? Do you or do your parents/friends know someone that can get you in somewhere?

If not, I suggest you roll up your sleeves and start applying all over Ontario / Canada. Do you have Linkedin? Message recruiters on there. You could get turned down but you've got nothing to lose. Apply to everything and anything, not just to business jobs but jobs that could potentially lead to something better. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone.

While you're doing all this searching, always keep in mind that having a University degree does not mean that you're entitled to a good job. This is a mistake that many University graduates from Ontario have. That's why most of them are in their late 20s, living with their parents and waiting for their big break. Remember, you still have to fight and crawl like the rest of us and you're only entitled to what you can earn right here, right now. Nobody owes you anything.

Also, get smart, use common sense. Signing up for Red Flag Deals and asking a bunch of strangers what you can do with the education that you took and studied for years is not using your common sense. I forgive you if you're young but as someone above me said, you should be going back to your school and asking them those same questions.

you guys are too harsh. of course OP should have known what career prospects would he have before he went to post-secondary school, but i see a lot of office jobs asking for his degrees. so it's not useless. plus he has post-secondary credits, which means he can apply to the police force or become a firefighter. if I were you OP, i'd start looking for office clerk jobs, a lot of these pay around $18-$22 to start. probably could get an entry-payroll clerk job easily as well.
