English Major propoganda

July 2, 2007

When I was choosing a major, I read articles like this one (published today) which convinced me I was on the right path.

While I am certain there are liberal arts majors in great careers, I wish these articles would check their percentages…If 1 out of a 100 do well, does that make the current system right? 1 out of 10? 1 out of 5?

Point is, the jobs profiled in the fluff story came from skills learned outside of the major (video editing as an English major skill) and who they knew (a friend landed him the job).

I wish that I would have had a little more truth in advertising.
