Philosophy majors and GPA-challenged students, rejoice! According to career guru Donald Asher, what you major in or how well you do in college are not indicators of future career success. In HOW TO GET ANY JOB WITH ANY MAJOR, Asher debunks the myth that only brainy students with specialized majors find high-paying, visible careers after college. The truth is that plenty of average folks with general, liberal arts majors have gone on to find lucrative and fulfilling careersand anyone can do it by following Asher'¬?s advice. If you'¬?re just graduating, you'¬?ll learn to promote the skills you already have, recognize how employers hire and what skills they value most, and get influential people to help you. Or, if you'¬?re already in the work world, you'¬?ll learn to use internships, credential programs, post-baccalaureates, and grad school to jump-start a stalled career. Offering innovative ideas to help launch the perfect career, HOW TO GET ANY JOB WITH ANY MAJOR is the new job-hunter'¬?s handbook to success.
