I didn't get a job directly from me degree, but I I got one eventually.  It worked out in the long term.
I believe a college education gives people an edge.  It may more may not lead to something related to your field, but it is an edge, if only a slight one.

Going from "flunked out" to office work, and back to college, I really had an advantage over the smarter students in seminars.  15 year of careful arguing with other talented people in the office sharpened my skills.  When I returned to college and only had seminars groups of 8-12 others, they really didn't have a chance against me.  And I was arguing with seniors and grad students focussing on the class subject.  Experience is wonderful.
