The Villanovan tracked down former English majors--and discovered a JPMorgan investment banker, an owner of two companies, a medical student, and a trial attorney. "Yes, I am an English major," said the banker, "but the communication skills, research skills, and analytical skills that I developed as a result of that make me a good candidate in this . . . field." Even the business owner says English skills help him run his real estate company. "My words," he explained, "are my product."
