What's your major? Employers may not care
She offers positions to liberal arts majors, even communications majors (sarc).
Then she trains them--she runs a training program.
She looks for "soft" skills--customer service experience, management, leadership, multitasking, thinking.
Thinking? That costs more!
You don't need a major that leads directly to a career.
Still, some employers like to see technical and "subject" skills. I am not asking a gender studies major about that weird mole.
Showing you combine the two--in an internship--is a good marketing move.
My degrees is in Asian Affairs. Interesting, but I never really used it per se. Wait--I did write a long story on travel to China for the TWA magazine.
