Career Communities

As a social and behavioral sciences major, you are building the skills that employers value, and you have lots of options.  Career Communities can help you explore those options, and help you determine which ones you might want to pursue.

Our career communities focus on different sectors of the world of work, and are an excellent way for SBS students to explore various industries, connect with alumni working in those fields, read articles and blog posts relevant to the work, and find internship and job opportunities and events focused on those careers.

Each career community offers an excellent opportunity for students to expand their thinking about what’s out there in the world, and also to narrow their thinking about which career paths they would like to explore.

 

Each career community contains curated content focused on careers in that industry, and students will find blog posts, articles, job and internship postings, and examples of alumni who are working in the field.  Because there is no direct path, and career exploration is an ongoing exercise, students are welcome and encouraged to explore as many career communities as they would like.
