Students who know what they
do well and communicate effec
tively will find jobs more easily,
an employment consultant from
the University of Houston said
Robert Wegmann, a professor
of human sciences and humani
ties, told a group of about 35
people at the Nebraska Union
that students' abilities to sell
themselves well will have an im
pact on a prospective employer.
Employers have an interest in
applicants who speak and write
coherently and who can tell the
employer what they can do for
the company, he said.
To interview well, applicants
must methodically study the job
market, he said. Some of that
study includes learning about the
company, kinds of jobs available
and the types of skills they re
quire. Also, applicants should
assess their own abilities to see if
their skills fit the job.
Wegmann focused his discus
sion on liberal arts majors because
of the decline of students major
ing in liberal arts.
National statistics indicate that
there has been a proportional
drop in the number of students
getting liberal arts degrees, while
the numbers seeking professional
degrees have increased, he said.
Liberal arts colleges have about
three options to help students
prepare for the labor market, he
said. Option one would be to
revert back to the 1920s and 30s,
when liberal arts appealed to the
select group of "rich, bookish and
naive." As fewer students major
in liberal arts, the colleges face a
cut in programs and instructors,
The colleges can try attracting
students to a liberal arts major by
stressing a "practical" approach,
They can add courses such as
political science management or
applied sociology so that students
think they will be able to apply
their skills practically.
Wegmann supported the third
option Implementing courses
to help students study their role
In the economic market. Excel
lent research is available to help
students learn how the labor mar
ket works, he said. From these
courses, students can find out
the kinds of available jobs and
build their skills to help get them
the job, he said.
