Jobs for History Majors in Kansas City

What do I do with a history major?

by Charlie Huette, Creative Director

If you’re wondering what you can do with your history degree, I have good news and bad news. 

Let’s start with the bad news: Lifted Logic is not hiring historians. I know, that sucks. 

Now for the good news: Lifted Logic and other digital agencies in Kansas City are hiring smart and curious people who are good at writing, research, teamwork, project management, communication, and any other skill that would make you good at creating amazing work for our clients. 

Yes, your history degree is useful to us!

History majors are trained to recognize and understand patterns in human behavior, and to adopt a big-picture perspective that can help contextualize and make sense of our current times. The job of a history major at Lifted Logic isn’t “doing history;” it’s performing the sort of thinking that history-minded people tend to do. That’s you! 

So while we might not (yet) be able to use your deep knowledge of neoclassical influences on post-revolutionary French fashion or the indiginous philosophies of Mesoamerica, we can use your sharp intellect, your critical eye, and your verbal acuity to enrich our teams and the work they do!  

That said, your history degree doesn’t define you. We know that.

It’s not that we don’t care about your history degree (we do, and we think it’s cool). And it’s not that we don’t think you’re smart (we do, and we can’t wait to meet you). It’s just that we know that your academic degree is just a small part of you. 

We don’t care what you bring to Lifted Logic as a history major. We care what you bring as you–your skills, your passions, your interests, your approach–you know, the big-picture you. We may not need your knowledge of indiginous Mesoamerican philosophies, but the mind that’s interested in that? Yes please. Sign us up. We’re looking for uncommonly talented and interesting people–from whatever background–who can bring it every day and help us deliver the highest quality work possible. 

Think you’d be a good fit? Send us your info!

If this point of view resonates with you, and you feel like you’d be a good fit at Lifted Logic, take a minute to poke around the site, get to know us, and check out the open positions. We aren’t your typical journalism job in Kansas City, but you aren’t looking for a typical job, are you? (And that’s why we’ll get along so well!)

If you don’t see a specific position that tickles your fancy, use our virtual application tool to submit your info and help us understand where you may be a good fit! If we agree, we’ll reach out with a task for you that will tell us about your skills and approach to the sorts of work we do every day. We can’t wait to meet you.
