Students have expressed a need for more guidance about how to navigate both academic and non-academic career paths. To help address this need, the Canadian Sociological Association’s Student Concerns Subcommittee has organized a professional development webinar series for students.  Each webinar will feature a guest speaker, either an academic or practitioner, and will focus on a different aspect of professional development.

Professional development is integral to strengthening students’ transferable skills and their understanding of how the core competencies of the discipline can be used in both academic and non-academic settings.  Students enter graduate programs with varying levels of information and awareness of the importance of such knowledge, and access to professional development resources also varies by institution, department, and individual supervisors.  Discipline-specific information and perspectives from sociologists at different institutions/in different settings may provide new and valuable insights for all students.

These webinars are meant to be interactive, so they will feature both a presentation from the guest speaker as well as an open Q&A period.
