Misperception 4 - Liberal Arts, Humanities and Science majors can't get a job after college, unless it is flipping burgers somewhere.

Career Wisdom: You will be more qualified than most! The skills you develop in a liberal arts curriculum are often those most desired by employers.  FACT: Arts and Sciences majors usually have valuable training in areas such as interpersonal interaction, public communication, writing, research, analysis, critical thinking and the ability to adapt to change. These are called transferable skills, i.e., skills you have learned in one area you can also use in a wide range of other areas. Liberal Arts, Humanities and Science majors are employed in a wide range of occupations however the job title may not be obviously related to the title of their academic major.
