How to Take the Guesswork Out of Finding a Job

Get proven guidance to stand out as an applicant and begin a great career with your English degree

Here’s the problem with finding a job as an English major.

Increased competition for a small number of permanent teaching gigs means your professors have likely spent their entire careers in the English department. From undergrad to grad school to their first lecturer gig, they’ve spent years preparing to become professors.

Unfortunately, this means very few professors actually have non-academic professional experience. And many of those that do haven’t worked outside the English department for a long time.

How are you supposed to get practical, timely career mentorship so you can get a job? And how do you learn tricks to land interviews, find the right job skills, and become a competitive applicant – all before landing your first job?


What’s an English major to do?
Fortunately for you, there’s help.

Introducing Our Premium Membership

The English Major’s Guide is a supportive and insightful resource for English majors to ask questions, discover new ideas, develop career skills, and become job-ready – all so you can have a satisfying career.

Inside our Premium Member Library, you’ll learn all the strategies, tips, tricks, and secrets that help you rise to the top of the applicant pile. You’ll discover how your English degree really is a great asset, and you’ll finally learn – step by step – how to leverage your degree into a career.

At English Major’s Guide, we understand what you’re trying to accomplish by studying English, and we’re here to help you:

  • Figure out what skills employers actually want

  • Develop these skills in the fastest, most effective way possible


  • Stay motivated and inspired

Our Premium Library is advanced career education for English majors. Inside our Premium Library, we share the tactics, knowledge, and strategies that don’t show up in public content.

We present the best job prep strategies for English majors used today – while making sure to only share what works now, not outdated advice.

We’re speaking from experience, too. Unlike some job prep sites, we’re actually working English majors who have great jobs. Our organization, English Major’s Guide, was founded by Matt Hall, who was making 6 figures less than two years after finishing his master’s degree in English.

After leveraging our English major education to land jobs we love, it’s safe to say we’ve got a good grasp on what works and what’s a waste of time in 2016.

“Not only have I begun to branch into lucrative freelance work myself, I recommend English Major’s Guide to every undergrad intern who comes through our doors.”

“I studied English because I wanted to lean into my strength as a writer for my career. Four years later I was a better writer, but had no idea how to make a career out of it. No one had answered the question, how do I turn my writing skills into a career? English Major’s Guide answers the question. “

Chris C.
Content Director

“The English Major’s Guide provided practical advice and real-world examples that are applicable, even after graduation.”

“The suggestions provided encouraging direction without being overbearing. It helped me to recognize different areas where my degree is valuable and applicable for not only finding a job, but finding a better job. Plus, the content is easy to follow and had thought-provoking activities that didn’t feel like busywork.”

Kirsten F.
Project Manager


“I wasn’t sure what to do after finishing my English degree, I now have a clear path to what I want to do next.”

“Thanks to The English Major’s Guide, I realized I wasn’t stuck teaching for the rest of my life. Now I’m on track to finish my MLIS degree and begin applying for jobs that pay $70,000 or more.”

Mika H.
MLIS Student
