Studying social sciences, anthropology, criminology or sociology at UQ? Or simply interested in looking for career direction and advice?
In collaboration with the HASS Faculty, The University of Queensland's Social Sciences Association is holding a PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT workshop for social science students in all majors!
The event will bring in the collective knowledge of students from different majors and alumni, as well as provide an opportunity to network with industry professionals working in social sciences.
This event was created to provide social science students with an understanding of the skills and knowledge that are expected of social science graduates in the workplace.
The event will explore questions such as:
- Where can a social science student look for job opportunities?
- What does a job description for a social science graduate look like?
- What are the general skills that social science employers desire?
- How can I apply the skills of my major to a job application?
If you are interested in tackling these questions with fellow social science students and networking with invited academics, come join us for an exciting session!
During the session students will analyse job descriptions, so we're asking students to bring along a job description for a role you would like to get after you graduate! Don't worry, we'll have extra social science job descriptions if you forget to bring one along. Together with your fellow social science students, the event will allow you to look through multiple job descriptions to understand the processes of job applications, and discover the broad skills that employers look for, and come up with solutions to fill the gaps in skills you feel you are lacking.
IMPORTANT: registration will close the day before the event on 20 October 2016.
