Graduates with liberal arts degrees are employed in a wide range of organizations including banks, museums, retail companies, law firms, television studios, hospitals, schools, financial institutions, and many more.  Your liberal studies education can be marketable in preparing you not only for your first job, but also for your entire career.

Employers are looking for graduates who have multiple skills and abilities that can be applied to many entry- level positions.  They want employees who can write, research, learn new languages, have some technical skills, can organize and analyze data, work under pressure, meet deadlines, interact cooperatively with others and are eager to pick up new skills. For profit, non-profit, and arts related organizations all recognize that most liberal arts graduates have acquired these skills through their education, internship and work experience, and extra-curricular activities.  Employers are seeking diverse candidates, which include more liberal arts graduates than ever before.
