Top liberal arts skills

For those students looking ahead or those grads seeking to market your liberal arts background, the National Association of Colleges and Employers includes these skills and qualities in their description of the Perfect Candidate…

Communication Skills (verbal and written) 
Honesty and integrity                      
Interpersonal skills
Strong work ethic
Teamwork Skills
Analytical skills
Motivation and initiative
Flexibility and adapability
Computer skills
Detail orientation
Leadership skills

So, freshmen, be of good cheer.  The sweaty palms you suffer in speech class, the islolated hours you spend in the library, the lengthy papers you labor over instead of buying on the web—someone’s going to recognize and reward those well honed skills sooner or later.
