It's a good approach that you are considering career options beyond your major. It is important to explore the wonderful opportunities available to you and how you can contribute to them. Many people think they can only contribute as an Architect after getting a degree in Architecture, which is not true. As an architect you develop great skills to conceptualize, visualize, work with some fabulous designs and implement designs on software. The technology has changed the ways you can work and therefore you should leverage that in order to get an off beat career keeping your skills and expertise that you developed during your major. Here's the list of career options that you can choose after having a degree in Architecture:

1. You can work as a consultant for Architectural firms. In this case your theoretical knowledge would be utilized to get things done.

2. You can shift to the field of Design if you are keen to work as a designer.

3. You can go in to the manufacturing sector.

4. You can also go in to the softare industry. That only requires good aptitude and decent mathematical and communication skills.
