This webinar will discuss how post-secondary institutions and educators can better support social sciences and humanities students for careers before they make the transition to the work world.
The barista with a history degree. The unemployed English graduate living in their parents’ basement. The returned-to-school psychology graduate who could not find a job. These well-worn tropes about graduates of social sciences and humanities post-secondary programs have become all too common.
Each year, thousands of new graduates with degrees in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) leave PSE and enter the labour market looking for work. While most of these new graduates find employment and go on to rewarding careers, many struggle in the short-term to define and establish a career path.
As it turns out, the transition from classroom to career does not need to be so onerous. Employers are looking for the skills that SSH graduates have. So what’s the problem? SSH graduates are often unaware of possible career paths, they don’t understand how to market their skills, and they lack work experience.
Post-secondary institutions need to respond to the challenge. This webinar will discuss how post-secondary institutions and educators can better support SSH students for careers before they make the transition to the work world.
