English Career

Listen (MP3)

GK: You know, it's never too late to start your second career as an English Major (BRIGHT CHORD). If you're stuck in a job where you have to use words like "synergistic" and "solutioning" ----- get into English Lit where you find "such stuff as dreams are made of." What's past is prologue. If "multi-tasking" and "repurposing" are cold comfort, try English. A language of infinite variety. The wish is father to the thought. And in your heart of hearts, you know ---to thine own self be true— Once more unto the breach, my friends, make the world your oyster ----- become an English major today.

GK: A message from the Professional Organization of English Majors.
