It is a truth universally acknowledged, that English major make the best employees

Well, perhaps not “universally acknowledged” so much as “something this one guy makes a really compelling argument for.” That’s right: in his article, “Why I Hire English Majors” Steve Strauss exalts the virtues of this complex breed, and why their particular strengths should appeal to the HR professional, including: smarts, boldness, writing ability, and friendly disposition. Call me English major, but it’s true! True on all counts—oh stop! I’m blushing.

 

So the next time you find yourself exclaiming, “Wherefore art thou, excellent employees?” remember: It is the best of times, it is the worst of times, it is the age to hire English majors.
