We recently received this letter and information from Money Geek and we hope that you find this resource valuable:
Dear UMaine Sociology:
Whether your students are simply curious about the field of sociology or will be transitioning into a career, it is important they have resources to understand the culture and environment.
MoneyGeek.com has created a Guide to Sociology Careers that provides insight to the salary range, career options and potential jobs within the field. In addition, I have paired that guide with some other career resources for your students to consider as they enter the workforce.
