Raise your career game.

You’re not alone.

There is a way to get a job and build your career.

Hi, I’m Andrew.

I’m the liberal arts graduate that found a job with a history degree. You know, the one your professors mention when you ask them about job prospects in your third year.

It was an uphill battle. 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 a road map—and that road map lives here.

This one’s for you.

I ended the unemployment cycle.

Follow this road map, and so will you.

Step 1: How to write a professional resume.

Most people just dump a list of tasks into their resume and call it a day—even marketers and seasoned executives! Follow this step to turn your resume into a hard-hitting professional document that quantifies your achievements, setting you apart from every other graduate job seeker on paper.

Step 2: How to create a rockstar LinkedIn profile that gets noticed.

Every recruiter and hiring manager on the planet will check your LinkedIn profile before deciding to contact you, even if it’s near-identical to your resume. Follow these specific steps to create the most professional version of yourself online.

Step 3: Let recruiters and job boards bring opportunities to you.

Most active job seekers spend all of their time combing through online job boards. This step teaches you how to make them send opportunities to you instead. It also shows you where to find recruiters who will job search on your behalf (P.S. you don’t have to pay them!).

Step 4: How to find work experience when you have none.

Even the best resume and LinkedIn profile in the world aren’t substitutes for work experience. This step shows you how to pitch projects to organizations in need so that you can build legitimate work experience, turning yourself into a serious job candidate.

Step 5: How to make a professional portfolio website for yourself.

Most professionals out there don’t have a website to their name. That’s a mistake, even for senior executives. Set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd by showcasing your talent, your insights, and your sheer drive to succeed. People will notice.

Step 6:  Following a professional networking strategy to find jobs.

Networking gets a bad reputation because so many people focus on getting something out of it right away. Follow this strategy to win hearts and minds with every interaction you make. Yes, it also includes tips for introverts who don’t like social gatherings.

Step 7: Applying for jobs with the strategy that nobody told you.

The best candidates don’t just go through an application tracking system and then patiently wait to “hear back soon.” They go on the hunt for the hiring managers they need and strike up conversations, using their portfolios and networking tactics to win attention.

Take your first step toward your next job.
