Earlier this month, Silicon Valley visionary Marc Andreesseen told a conference that people who major in "softer stuff" like English will have a lot of fun while they're studying, but won't have great job prospects after.
He said English majors will probably end up working in a "shoe store."
It turns out he has no idea what he's talking about (on this particular topic).
Williams College students Hayley Brooks and Kaison Tanabe analyzed the careers of 15,000+ graduates, and used CIRCOS visualization software to plot out the data. Professor Satyan Devadoss then published it online.
