Dear English Major
In March 2014, I launched DearEnglishMajor.com, a website dedicated to showing English majors all that is possible with an English degree. I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA with a degree in English, and when I first graduated, the sky was the limit! ...In other words, I had no idea what kind of a career I truly wanted to pursue.
My idea of what I could do with an English major was limited, and even after an internship at a publishing company, I still felt like my options were few and far between. But after some serious searching, countless cover letters, my first couple of jobs and diving into the world of freelancing, I learned that there are a ton of options out there for us wordsmiths!
I am constantly working to grow and expand DearEnglishMajor.com with new content, interviews and information. Now, there are 20,000+ Facebook followers, 7,000+ Instagram followers, 5,000+ Twitter followers, and 1,200+ Pinterest followers. Dear English Major grows a little more each and every day!
I have also written a book titled From Graduation to Career Ready in 21 Days: A Guide for English Majors. This simple, detailed guide is packed with the information and resources English majors need to successfully navigate the job search process in 21 days. The book is available for purchase in the Dear English Major bookstore, and on Amazon, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, and Smashwords.
A few random facts about me:
- Currently, I live in the North Beacon Hill neighborhood in Seattle with my husband. I take frequent trips to Tacoma and Puyallup to visit family, friends and clients.
- I love traveling, especially to other countries! I've had the pleasure of visiting Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Ireland, Mexico, Myanmar, The Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. I'm hoping to add a couple more countries to the list in 2017!
- I really enjoy getting crafty. Sewing, painting, card making, cookie decorating, drawing and crocheting all help me relax. Know of a fun DIY blog? Send it my way!
- My brother, Jacob, makes awesome promotional videos (like this one) and just graduated with a degree in Communication from the University of Washington. He has his own videography business, Waka Waka Studios.
