Flummoxed about your career options? This natty little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your sociology degree.

Skills

 

Aside from your knowledge of sociology, here are some skills that your degree might have helped you to develop…

Analytical Skills

You’re better than Shearer and Hansen put together. You’re even better than Gary Neville. Fortunately, your top-notch analytical skills also extend beyond the world of football punditry.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Creativity

You have the ability to come up with creative and innovative ideas. You’re so far outside the box you can’t even see the box. The box is merely a dot on the horizon.

Critical Thinking

When you’re presented with a problem or idea, you have the ability to think about it from a critical perspective. You’re not afraid to share your opinion.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Negotiation

Articulate, methodical and composed, your negotiation skills are top-notch. You could even give Barry Obama a run for his money.

Objective Thinking

You can think objectively and approach problems and situations with an open mind.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.
