Career Conversation for Social Sciences Students!

“Hi Everyone!

Welcome to September! On behalf of the Experiential Education (EE) office in the Faculty of Social Sciences, I wanted to reach out to all of our departmental societies and let you know about some great events we have planned for term one that we hope you will share with your membership.

In particular I would like to highlight our Career Conversations which start as early as next week and continue throughout the fall term. Career Conversation topics include some of the following:

  • music therapist
  • lawyer
  • human resources
  • speech language pathologist
  • police officer
  • corporate communications

These are informal events where professionals from the community come to campus and connect with small groups of 15-20 students. Professionals will share information about their career and education path and answer your questions.  This is a great way to learn more about a specific career area from someone currently in the field.

Spaces are very limited and students register on OSCARplus at https://www.oscarplusmcmaster.ca/home.htm and search under Social Sciences > Events.

Many more Career Conversations are being planned and will be added to OSCARplus and our website as they are confirmed (We are hoping to secure careers such as teacher, social worker, child life specialist, policy analyst, museum archivist, etc.) If you have any ideas for future Career Conversations on behalf of the students in your program, please email me to share your thoughts.

If you are planning any academic events for the year, please let us know and we are happy to promote them on our EE Facebook and Twitter.

Please feel free to drop by KTH 102 to say hello and introduce yourself if we don’t know you already.

Best of luck with the term!”
