Pulitzer Prize–win­ning au­thor Ge­orge An­ders be­lieves peo­ple who in­fuse “a hu­man­ist’s grace” into “tech­ni­cal dis­ci­plines” meet the em­ploy­ment needs of con­tem­po­rary so­ci­ety. He ex­plains that lib­eral arts grad­u­ates can blend their skills, train­ing and “ex­plorer’s spirit” to land in­no­va­tive, sat­is­fy­ing jobs in var­ied fields. Most of his ex­am­ples fo­cus on re­cent grads, but his ap­proach is trans­ferrable to those who are ready for a ca­reer change. An­ders of­fers valu­able tips to help lib­eral arts ma­jors en­vi­sion their ca­reer pos­si­bil­i­ties and re­al­ize the long-term value of cre­ative po­si­tion­ing. rec­om­mends An­ders’s guid­ance to re­cent grads and mid­ca­reer alumni ready to mar­ket their skills in fresh ways.
