This booklet is designed to help undergraduates understand the skills that today’s employers are seeking, and the ways a sociology major helps build those skills. The 2nd Edition includes photos and profiles of more than a dozen individuals with a BA in sociology – including a marketing consultant, a high school teacher, a probation officer, a research associate, a public health consultant, and a college president. Each profiled individual describes their professional position, how they use sociology in their daily work, and their advice to current students in sociology classes. Action Boxes, excerpts from actual entry-level job postings, and tips on searching for a job on the internet are also featured. The overarching theme is that students must take an active role in composing their own 21st century career. 42 pages, 2014. American Sociological Association
