21st Century Careers with an
Undergraduate Degree in Sociology
"The 21st century labor market is fast-changing, increasingly global and technology-driven."
Finding the meaningful thread that connects your passion and interests to a substantial and productive job cannot be a passive process. To build your own 21st century career you will need to use all your creativity and innovation.
From your first year in college you will need to think carefully about your own talents preferences, and career goals; find ways to take advantage of opportunities to learn both inside and outside the classroom; and start building a resume that will help you stand out in today's competitive work place.
The ASA's Academic and Professional Affairs department has developed a publication designed to help you start the process of building your own 21st century career.
It focuses on sociology majors who are thinking about their first, entry-level jobs after graduation.
