A job roadmap for humanities graduates.
Created by a humanities graduate.
Hi, I’m Andrew. You might have spotted me on the homepage.
In 2016 I was let go from my first job out of college. I found out the hard way that STEM-focused hiring culture doesn’t take humanities and liberal arts graduates seriously.
I applied to hundreds of postings during 9 months of unemployment, but no one wanted to take a chance on a writer who didn’t know his way around WordPress or Excel.
After landing several jobs successfully, I observed what worked and what didn’t. I’ve had conversations with several bosses about what they liked and what they didn’t like in my application process.
This roadmap is the result, and it works.
It’s for graduates who are serious about finding a job and getting paid what they’re worth right after college.
It’s the process I needed when I was in your shoes, and I’m confident it will help you find the job you deserve.
