Career Conversations with Sociology Graduates

January 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
001 Vanier College (Renaissance Room)

In partnership with the Sociology Undergraduate Student Association (S.U.S.A.) and the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies Dean's Office.

Wondering where your sociology degree can take you? Want to meet sociology grads who are working in diverse roles across different fields?

Connect with professionals currently working in a variety of professions and find out how their sociology backgrounds helped them to get there. During this panel, professionals will share their personal career stories about breaking into their field, how their career paths took them from graduation to where they are now, what knowledge, skills and experience helped them succeed in their jobs and what types of opportunities are available. The panel will be moderated by one of the Career Centre's team members and followed by an open forum where students will have an opportunity to ask the panelists their own questions.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Registration is required. You may register for this event on the Career Centre's online system (you must sign up for an account before you will be able to register for any events on the system).

In partnership with The Sociology Undergraduate Student Association and The Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies.
