Jessup S.

Bachelor's DegreeThe University of Kansas

United States


As a recent graduate, I do not have a sizable of professional experience. However, I do have an extreme desire to gain these skills while assisting the valuable companies presented on this site. I understand that the history major is not the most marketable major but my goal is to break that stereotype and show the value a history major can bring to a company. Through the study of history, I have gained impeccable research and critical thinking skills which are invaluable in the modern business. I have also greatly enhanced my problem-solving skills as I am able to draw upon a vast historical well of knowledge and see how those before me have confronted a situation then tailor those experiences to suit the current situation. I am an effective communicator and a motivated individual. I also combined my history major with a business minor which has taught me relevant modern practices and an ability to contribute to any company immediately.
