This text acquaints new students with some of the advantages of sociological knowledge they will pursue through the formal sociology curriculum. It will alert them to the important role of sociology in matters they have heretofore considered exclusively psychological. Aimed at appealing to students across many disciplines, the study does not limit job market considerations to the presumed interests of sociology majors. The text is designed to provide an effective interface between traditional sociology and what students call "relevance." It demonstrates the practical application of such knowledge to "a job" and offers an overview of the assessing the labor market, choosing an appropriate place in it, and developing a career strategy for the choice.
