Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
With affirmative action and school integration policies being challenged in the Supreme Court and throughout the country, careers in ethnic studies and liberal arts are more pertinent than ever. Despite the University of Michigan's compliance with a voter-approved ban on affirmative action, the school has stated that it will use other criteria to achieve diversity, suggesting a need for Equal Opportunity/ Affirmative Action (EO/AA) specialists. Liberal arts students and professionals will find information on ethnic, cultural, and liberal art studies, along with hundreds of other careers, on CareerSchoolDirectory.com, an online resource for career education and training.
In the article "Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Specialists Champion Cultural Diversity," CareerSchoolDirectory.com columnist Karen Lawson details career paths that offer liberal arts and ethnic study graduates suggestions for exciting new ways to capitalize on their education (http://www.careerschooldirectory.com/news/2006/11/equal_opportunity_affirmative_action_specialists_champion_cultural_diversity.html).
Lawson writes, "If you're interested in a career that will put your liberal arts background to good use, consider an EO/AA position. This type of work requires a broad understanding of humanities, human behavior and psychology, and multicultural or ethnic studies." CNNMoney.com columnist Anne Fisher believes liberal arts graduates have valuable and marketable skills. She writes, "A liberal arts degree, plus good communications and computer skills, signal to recruiters that you'll be adaptable to a wide range of jobs."
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a higher than average growth rate for EE/AA specialists through 2014. The BLS also reports, "Legislation and court rulings setting standards in various areas--occupational safety and health, equal employment opportunity, wages, health care, pensions, and family leave, among others--will increase demand for human resources, training, and labor relations experts."
