Maybe film posters/dvd covers/etc. Anything that deals with graphics really. Or if you know web design as well, building a webpage for the movie pays well.

most importantly, its not so much your degree but your skills that get you jobs :)

i dont know what your course included exactly, but if you are good with photoshop and things like that, maybe you can do cgi stuff...background plates, rotoscoping, working with masks, doing single frame retouching, stuff like that. get yourself after effects, which is a good program to learn such stuff n see how you go.

graphic design is perfect for Motion Graphics, DVD Authoring, Posters, Business Cards, Logos, etc it really ties in the industry well. Try picking up After Effects 7, Discreet Combustion and Encore DVD to start off.

Anything for which you can demonstrate an ability for, via a reel, flat art, or anything else of substance.

Not to burst any bubble you might have, but the degree means next to nothing, other than to create an expectation of a certain basic level of knowledge in a particular area. A degree is not a ticket to a job, nor is it a substitute for demonstrated competancy. Degrees are valuable only in academic settings. If you want to teach, they can be a requirement. However, in the real world, especially in the film industry, it is talent that is required. Put together a portfolio that might include your best computer graphics, flat art, or film work. That will be your calling card - not the piece of paper from the university.
