Communications Specialist at Morningstar, Inc.

As a history major at Wellesley, you learn to write well, develop strong research skills, and think independently and critically. Exceptional writing, editing, proofreading, and verbal communication skills are critical to my job in Corporate Communications at a global financial services firm.

History gives you the tools to communicate an idea or understanding effectively, ask critical questions, and rescourcefuless in finding creative answers/solutions to many problems. At NBC it was important to know how to listen and ask questions to your supervisors and teammates, to stay on top of lots of information, and constantly advocate for yourself and your abilities.

I learned a lot about effective communication, particularly when structuring and supporting an argument. As an engineer, you must not only be able to understand an issue, but also communicate your stance to convince others of your viewpoint.
