There is a way to get a job and build your career.
Hi, I’m Andrew.
I’m the liberal arts graduate who found a job with a history degree. You know, the kind your professors mention nervously when you ask them about viable job prospects in your third or fourth year.
It was an uphill battle, but I did become a skilled professional. There was no road map. It took 9 months of unemployment, trial, and error.
I just wish I’d had this site to show me the way when I needed it.
That’s why I created the Employed Historian. So many people question what you’ll do with a history degree, yet here I am with a career that I love and a freelance brand that I can take with me wherever I go.
You can do it too. You just need dedication, a growth mindset, and someone who has really lived through the challenge you’re facing right now.
This one’s for you.
I ended the unemployment cycle.
Follow this road map, and so will you.
Done with never hearing back?
Done with unemployment shame?
Done working for minimum wage?
