Director of Corporate
Education, C.H.Robinson Company, Chicago
"A liberal arts education can be applied to any career you choose. As director of corporate education for C. H. Robinson, I teach transportation sales and logistics systems, I'm involved in employee recruitment, and I act as a consultant for our European training program. I found my position through the Arts and Sciences Career Services. During my senior year, I took Q400, which really helped me in creating resumes, interviewing, and finding resources to aid my job search."
Liberal arts students must understand and practice scientific methods; this approach to knowledge forms the basis of scientific research; guides the formation, testing, and validation of theories; and distinguishes conclusions that rest on unverified assertion from those developed through the application of scientific reasoning. Mathematical and statistical studies teach arts and sciences students to reason quantitatively, a skill essential in an increasingly technological society.
