How has being an English graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

As an English major, I was always curious about others - characters in plays & novels, and my fellow classmates and their interpretations of these great works. I learned about common themes in human psychology and behaviour that have persisted over centuries. I also built up strong communication skills, both verbal and written, and all of these things have helped me succeed as a Human Resources professional in financial services in New York and London.
