That is true also.A large number of employers look for other skills a person has other than the ones to which they majored in.
Case in point,The job market has presently tanked for new college graduates.
My daughter applied for a job which she knew college grad women would also be applying.There was 80 applicants.She was hired at 1 dollar more an hour
than the starting rate.
Why?Because her Dad insisted if he was paying for her education that she take this one course before she pursued any other.
MS Office suite and office administration a 12 week course with a certificate of completion.
And a portfolio that they had to make and keep during the course of the class of work they did.
That is what she showed the interviewer and why she beat out 79 people who gave him just a resume.
She did not tell him what she could "bring to the company".
She showed him what she could bring.
Now she has a good paying job and still attend school working on her degree.
I am not just "Oneolddude".
I am a smart Dad too.
