Well I plan on going to a state college for my major and go to Grad school over in California or somewhere that is not my hometown. It isn't too expensive with Grants, Loans, and Federal Assistance but to do that I need to take the ACT, fill out a bunch of forms, submit them and hope for the best. I can't get accepted into the college without the ACT (Since my High School grades will not get me in. God damn senior year) but that costs money to take and I need to get something to study for it since I never took Calculus (being out of high school for 5 years doesn't help).
I know the feeling of having schooling for something and having basically no career openings since I want to major in Japanese and there is really no career options outside of teaching. I know it is only a hypothetical knowledge of a feeling (That sentence doesn't make much sense). All in all it is going to need me to do things so I can get this ball rolling.
So you went to school for History, anything specific like Art Music etc or just the broad subject? Also by Training Contract do you mean something like an Internship?
