You can do all kinds of things. Many jobs just want someone with a degree of any kind, and will hire someone as long as they have a college degree (including in psychology). I have a friend who works in Human Resources for a company, and she has a degree in psychology. Other places that conduct research might be interested in hiring someone with a psychology degree, even though you might be doing different kinds of research other than psychology (like health, marketing, and so on).

My friend majored in psychology and got a non-psychology job. I myself majored in psychology, and ended up going to graduate school for sociology. So you could also consider graduate school (in a different field from psychology) or law school, if you think that might be something you'd be interested in.

You could get a master's in Industrial Psychology and then work in the data mining field. The multiple regression mathematics of IO Psychology are exactly what Google uses to data mine everyone.

A degree in psychology is a really broad base so no worries that you don't want to be a psychologist. There are all kinds of things you can do! I In general, when I approached getting my masters degree in psychology I saw three major trends of what people did after graduating: taught (various levels and with the military or other professional organizations, did research (within academic or organizations), or counseled people (this can been academic counseling/career or guidance counseling to mental health and psychiatry). Think about what your interests are and see if you can mold that into psychology and that may guide you. Hope this helps!
