As you may know, UQ recently released a StudentStrategy that focuses on enhancing the learning experience for UQ students. (Link here: https://student-strategy.uq.edu.au/files/392/Student-Strategy_White-Paper.pdf)
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) is always looking for opportunities to help students gain industry-specific knowledge and skills, and get them ready for their careers after graduation. And new and exciting opportunities are arriving to the students this semester 2.
In collaboration with the HaSS Faculty - Undergraduate Student Experience Project Team, SSA present to you
a discipline-based employability workshop.
We want to bridge the gap between what social science and humanities students learn in their degree, and what employers look for, to help HASS students to understand the value of the skills they have, and what skills they should try to develop.
We will work with questions such as:
- How does a job description for social science related jobs look?
- What are the general skills that employers desire?
- How can I apply the skills of my major to a job application?
- Where can a Social Science student look for job opportunities?
In order to do this we are asking you to bring along a joblisting of a job you could see yourself have in the future, it can be a dream job or in a field you really enjoy. (Don’t worry if you can’t find one, we will have spares available at the event.)
