Imagine a career in strategic planning. As a strategic planner , you’ll spend your time analyzing and organizing information, preparing and giving presentations, and interviewing clients, vendors and other people in your line of business. Then you’ll need to communicate what you and your team discover. Elevator pitches aren't only for screenwriters!
Still not seeing the connection to creative writing? Well, another large part of this job is reading, not novels or poems, but documents that help forecast opportunities in an industry. This requires research skills, creativity and reading between the lines. As a creative writing major, you’ll harness your ability to understand the written word and draw conclusions others may not be able to see.
