Not only English majors, but liberal arts majors generally have a strong match with the skills employers say they want. These include:
- a demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems
- ethical judgment and integrity, intercultural skills
- the capacity for continued new learning, and the ability to contribute innovation in the workplace
Be sure that when you talk with prospective employers, either at career fairs or interviews, and when you draft your resume, and when you network, that you promote the skills you have!
