What workplace skills does history develop?
Debating: In careers as diverse as law, politics, bid writing, marketing and sales, you’ll need to be able to persuade others, using evidence to back up your case.
Research: Research is vital to paralegals preparing for legal cases, journalists and writers working on a story or article, and analysts investigating their area of expertise.
Time management: Most jobs involve deadlines or juggling priorities, from customer service, project management and IT support to contract work and freelancing.
And one you might not have thought of...
Staying positive: The past teaches us that things can change for the better. Positivity is vital when you're up against a professional challenge such as a difficult customer, a tough problem or a steep learning curve.
