If you're exploring various ways to use your graduate degree in history then check out this unique blog maintained by historian Nicholas Evan Sarantakes. It contains posts of interest to anyone with a graduate degree in the humanities who is looking for career management advice. My favorite post: The History Ph.D. as a Librarian, of course!
