Psychology major can be applied to many industries. For example, any job that requires customer service skills, analysis, legal, etc will hire people that has psychology background. Although, you might have to take other supplemental classes to support whatever field you are trying to go into, like taking business or economics as a minor to better support your resume when you are trying to look for that first job.

I agree. It will be tough to find a good paying job if you just hold a psychology degree. It's better to have a minor degree in an other area to support that major. Although many companies that are involved in the medical field, or medical research can use people with psychology degree simply because of their ability to research, familarity with statistics and writing formal reports on findings.

You can try teaching as well. Although most accredited schools required their teachers to be certified or required to be a certain degree level (ie. Master or PHD), you can certainly search around and see.
