As much as you’d love to apply to companies that recognize the depth of an English major and love you for the you are, that’s not always the case. That being said, applying for jobs that don’t necessarily look for English majors requires a different resume setup. De la Vergne advises placing education last on a resume. No applicant wants to be dismissed before the employer even reaches the experience section just because of his major. Imagine the interviewer scoffing, thinking you spent four years reading novels. The horror! Put your experiences first. The key is to never publicize your major, but the skills you have acquired in your learning.
