This booklet is a step-by-step guide to building a résumé just for liberal arts students, with advice for translating liberal arts "skills" into business vocabulary, suggestions for enhancing experience and education, and a lot of practica, real-world encouragement from a long-time hiring manager (and former English major!).
From “Why Liberal Arts in Business” and “The Liberal Arts ‘Skills’—-What Are they?” to how to talk about a humanities or social sciences education in business-relevant terms, this book helps students present themselves to recruiters and hiring managers, both on paper and in person. It also helps career advisers guide liberal arts students, connecting them with prospective employers.
The book also includes a step-by-step approach to building a résumé, a section on cover letters (including the best student cover letter the author ever read) and another on “elevator pitches”—-how to surprise prospective employers who have no idea how relevant the liberal arts are to their company’s job requirements.
Written by an Information Technology professional and manager who started life as an English major, "Business Resumes for Liberal Arts Students" is snappy, friendly, and confidential: "Hey, we know how good you are. Let's not keep it a secret any longer!"
