Career Readiness and Getting Jobs
January 13, 2023

Few job ads explicitly say they want a sociologist or sociology major even though, sociology majors have a lot of the skills employers desire. Therefore, instructors are tasked with helping students make connections between what they are learning for their degree and what employers want. This resource collection includes materials for helping students with career planning and getting jobs. There are assignments and activities that can be used as part of a capstone course, but also that can be integrated throughout the sociology curriculum.
