English Majors Needed

The Wall Street Journal's prognostication for the ideal job candidate in 2012 suggests that you, English majors, and others with a broad liberal arts base, will look quite good to employers. The terms that the article uses over and over are "flexibility," "adaptability," "able to quickly adapt," and "general proficiency."

That means English majors can and should market themselves as an employers best bet, for positions and industries in which knowledge and skills will change rapidly. And in what field are knowledge and skills not changing rapidly these days!?
