Storify Project

Does your college major matter when applying for a job? My partner and I spoke with experts, employers and students at the Emory University Fall 2016 Career Fair to learn their opinions on how much you college major affects your career trajectory and opportunities after graduation. While some employers noted that it is important for majors to match careers, others pointed out that skill sets gained through a liberal arts education were just valuable, regardless of one’s major. We created a Storify article to share these opinions and examine this topic in further detail.
