Sociology Careers and Jobs

Select, Find and Prepare for Sociology Careers and Jobs - all on one page


Here is a more detailed 3-minute Helper Video External Link.

This page will take you through 4 steps to (1) Select from Sociology careers/jobs, (2) Find Sociology job listings, (3) Prepare for Sociology careers, and (4) Provide Sociology career-specific resources.

Step 1: Select a Career/Job: This page starts with 4 ways for you to identify and select from listings of Sociology careers/jobs:
A) Fastest Growing Sociology Careers - 2020 to 2030 (est.)
These listings are based on job growth estimates and helps you to identify the fastest growing and evolving Sociology careers. Some careers may not initially seem related to Sociology, so relevant Sociology jobs are listed alongside each listing. This can also help us to identify which careers (bottom of the listing) may have negative growth - perhaps due to automation or planned obsolescence.
B) Median Annual Salary U.S. Sociology Careers
These listings are sorted (descending) by median annual salary in the U.S. This may help us to identify our ideal career. We may not qualify at this time for the desired career, but this listing and the results provided can help us to explore job details, as well as learn how to appropriately prepare for the career.
C) Sociology Career Ladders (Educational Requirements)
These listings will help us to identify Sociology careers sorted by educational requirements (with the most difficult to obtain listed first). This may help us to identify career ladders (as we scroll down the list), and help us to get jobs that we qualify for now.
D) Select From a Listing of 97 Sociology Jobs.
The list may be quite long. There are two ways you might like to use this list:
1) Filter - As you enter a word, you will filter (limit) the list of jobs
2) Browse the list (Don't Filter) - You can simply explore the list of jobs. There may be many that you might never have considered to be of interest.
Once you have identified an job of interest, simply click on it.

Step 2: Find a Job: After you have selected a career/job above, you will see current jobs listings. You can change the location, distance from location and recency as desired. Each of the listings will link to a current job opening.

Job listings (based on your criteria) can be sent daily to your inbox, so you always have access to the latest opportunities. Complete the short form to start - you can opt out anytime.

Step 3: Prepare For a Career: In this section you will gain access to detailed information to help you prepare for the chosen career. Information may include (not every career choice includes all of the elements below - updates occur quarterly):
Core and Supplemental Duties: Lists the worker-related tasks performed
General and Specific Work Activities: Summarizes the broad and more specific types of behaviors related to the career

** If you clicked on a link from section D (as described in Step 1 above), you will see one or more links to an occupation that is usually a bit more general than your initial job selection - the link(s) is directly related to the specific job you identified through your prior selections.
*NOTE: It is possible that there may not be a career path identified for the specific job you selected in Step 1. If this is the case, scroll up the page and click on a different career/job.

Step 4: Career-Specific Resources (detailed and constantly updated): Continue to scroll down the page and you will find tabs that provide detailed (updated) links specific to the career you selected. This information includes:

Resumes: Sources for resume materials and techniques. This can help to get you started.
Job Description: Sources that provide job descriptions, which are vital to resume and interview preparation.
