Welcome to a SPOOK-tacular Week 5!


The fortune of Husky Football isn’t the only thing that’s terrifying – it’s also HALLOWEEN WEEK! Don your costumes and grab some candy – or curl up with a loved one and watch a scary movie (or be like me – do both)! There’s no wrong way to celebrate this week – unless, of course, you miss out on any of the great events and information we’re collecting for you here. To avoid such a diabolical fate, here’s a few things to pay attention to:

  • Internships for Winter/Spring 2019. Each year, the Sociology Department partners with local civic and community organizations to offer students a chance to get hands-on experience while earning academic credit. The applications for these internships were just posted, and the deadline will approach faster than you think (Wednesday, 14 November)! For more information, please see our blog post, or visit the Department’s Internship page.
  • Events in the Career Center. As always, don’t miss our weekly post previewing the most relevant events in the Career Center. This week includes workshops on communicating your strengths and on the process of interview, as well as opportunities for direct career coaching.
  • Career Workshop for SOC Majors. In addition to the standard events from the Career Center, on Friday, 02 November, Caitlin Goldbaum, a career coach with the Career Center, will be hosting a resume/cover letter workshop for SOC majors – especially for majors interested in the Winter/Spring 2019 internships. For more information, see our blog post, and to sign up, email asksoc@uw.edu and put Resumes and Cover Letters Workshop in your subject line.

Make sure to check the blog this week, as we’ve got some great information about scholarships, internships, courses, and other events coming your way!

Stay spooky, stay safe, and, most importantly, stay sociological!
