We love receiving publication submissions from guest contributors. At Applied Worldwide we are currently offering two paid writing opportunities. The first is our full SEO articles. These articles should be 800-1200 words and conform specifically to the prompts below. Our second writing opportunity is on our blog. These are roughly 500 word submissions that loosely relate to sociology and Applied Worldwide's mission. If you have writing ideas and would like to contribute to Applied Worldwide, contact us at AppliedWorldwide@gmail.com.
In this edition of "Writer’s Update,” I want to address sociology and work. We have so many people looking for advice and guidance about professional sociology or just generally how to make a living with a degree in sociology.
On our website we approach sociology and work from a couple of different angles:
First, we have a page dedicated to occupational experiences. This is one page on our website in which we would like to strengthen. Our intended purpose of this page is to present examples of sociology in different occupations. We are looking for a wide range of occupational experiences. Whether we are working a part-time job for extra cash or have worked in the same environment for 30 years, there is always room for reflection and sociological application. Perhaps you have an unofficial sociological analysis of your workplace? Perhaps you have a specific workplace experience that exemplifies a sociological concept? Nonetheless, we would like this page to be a representation of experiential articles where authors freely reflect on their own occupational experiences through a sociological perspective.
Second, we have a page called Sociology in Industry. On this section of our website, we are looking to publish articles that demonstrate how sociology students can specifically prepare to find work as a sociologist. One article that really demonstrates what we are going for is Iga Kozlowska’s writing called, Sociologists, The Tech Industry Needs You! In this piece she covers some of the top roles that people with sociology degrees can fill in the industry and some of the most coveted skills. We would like to expand and represent different industries!
In summation, people are interested in how their sociology education can help them make money. For some of us our degrees have led us to occupations where we may not be called a ‘sociologist’ in our day-to-day roles, but these experiences can still provide valuable insight. For others, we may work in positions where we are actually referred to as sociologist or at least our education is more formally recognized in our positions, and for those fortunate to be in those situations, your insight is incredibly valuable to those who may wish to follow your path.
