English majors can think

Interesting article at CNN. I agree with the premise: English majors have a ton of creativity, energy and talent -- and this translates into an ability to deal with complex problems on the job.

I was an English major. Later in life, when people asked me what I did for a living, I'd say, "I don't know. I'm just smart and I figure things out."

Take note, employers. People with business degrees might not be aren't creative.

Oy... please don't rub it in, I know, I know. I have been fighting this handicap for years.
