It may be time to get excited about being an English major again. (As if you ever weren't excited.) At least, it's time for employers to show you some love. The tides may be turning.
So says this American Express forum article.
You've got mad skillz in writing, communication, research, critical thinking, and a healthy dose of empathy that will keep you from being the office jerk.
If you're still waiting for employers to sit up and contact you just because you hold an English degree--don't hold your breath. You'll turn blue and pass out. But if you want some excellent language about how to sell what you've got, and a good reason to take some pride in who you are and what you know how to do--this is a good read.
