Career as an applied sociologist

Earlier today I spoke on a careers panel at the postgraduate day for The Australian Sociological Association.

I’ll do a full post on this later but for now I wanted to share a couple of the questions we were asked.

These ranged from specifics like how to set up a business to broader questions about how to manage ethics and how to maintain a professional identity.

One of the key themes from the panellists was learning to translate theory into practice and networking. I spoke about writing for your future clients via a specialist blog and using social media.
