The Careers & Experiential Education team plans further expansion

The Faculty of Social Sciences’ Career & Experiential Education (C&EE) team is hiring a Career Development and Relationship Manager to provide additional support as they expand their services and offerings. The new hire is expected to join the team for Summer 2022.

The Career Development and Relationship Manager will support undergraduate students in the Social Sciences with applications and paid placements in work-integrated learning programs. In addition to the existing Internship Program, they will also play a key role in developing an exciting new slate of work-integrated learning programs with academic departments.

The new hire will also play a central role in the Social Sciences 2EL0 career course. This tuition-free course for Social Sciences students focuses on career development, job search strategies, and interview skills. It is also required for participation in the Social Sciences Internship Program.

This new role will join a multifaceted Careers & Experiential Education team with more than twenty cumulative years of history in the Faculty of Social Sciences, delivering career development, and experiential and skills-development programming. Ruthanne Talbot and Keri Long have each contributed more than a decade of service to students by supporting community-engaged, in-course, and internship placements – among many other services and opportunities. Earlier this year, career development professional Cindy Schooley joined the team to provide career advising services.

Social Sciences students offer unique skillsets to contemporary workplaces, and graduates find success in fields across the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors. Due to the open-ended possibilities for career development, Social Sciences students often need varied supports and resources compared to students in more path-dependent or professional programs.

“Working with creative, engaged, and open-minded students is what makes working with Social Sciences students so rewarding,” says Schooley. “Our students join our Faculty because they want to contribute positively to society through studying human behaviour, culture, institutions and relationships. With their holistic understanding on societal issues and solutions, it is an honour to be a part of the C&EE team and to provide experiences to help shape our students’ career journey."

“We can’t wait to meet the next member of our team,” says Mark Busser, Manager of Careers and Experiential Education in the faculty. “It will be exciting to take our services and supports to the next level by welcoming a new person with a fresh perspective.”
