Business Background

I’m an English major, and graduation has me nervous. The economy seems to be doing well, but I’m not sure what kinds of jobs are available to me – or which ones I even want!

One thing I’m considering is going into business, because that seems to be where the money is these days. I think I’d be good at it and that I’d enjoy it, but I’m not sure that I have the background that hiring managers are looking for in the business world. What kind of backgrounds do businessmen and women come from, these days? What can I do to bolster my resume?
