Philosophers are critical thinkers. If you want to think and reason well about anything, then taking at least some philosophy is a good idea. In philosophy, we do not train people to be lawyers, doctors, or businessmen -- we train them to be better lawyers, better doctors, better businessmen, and better practitioners in general.
The vast majority of Philosophy majors do not go on to academic careers -- although the preparation you receive here will certainly help you if you decide to do so.
