Marketable skills are those that employers are seeking because they are necessary to do the entry level job. Sometimes these are related to major. For instance, most professional jobs in accounting require an accounting degree. A physical therapist must have that major and a lawyer must graduate from law school. For many jobs and careers, however, the major requirement may be more general because the skills and knowledge necessary for the job are not contained in any one major. For instance, many sales recruiters look for skills in communication, persuasion and self-direction. Many investment firms are interested in skills in research and analysis and like broadly educated individuals. Liberal arts and sciences majors wind up as successful business people, teachers, scientists and in many other rewarding careers.
