Embarking upon a Career with an Undergraduate Sociology Major.
Huber, Bettina J.
This booklet is designed to help undergraduate sociology majors find employment in related areas in which they would like to work. Topics include identifying personal interests and skills, researching possible careers, finding out what those careers are really like by interviewing people working in those areas, writing effective letters and resumes, applying for jobs, presenting oneself well in employment interviews, and avoiding rejection shock. Job hunters are encouraged to look beyond the classified advertisements to find the majority of jobs, which are never advertised publicly. A three-page bibliography giving further sources for career and job hunting information is also included. (IS)
