How to Find a Career in Family Science
It is common for Family Science students to feel overwhelmed by the job search process. This is especially true if they do not plan to pursue a career as a college or university faculty member or researcher. Luckily, NCFR member Erica Jordan, Ph.D., CFLE, is here to help with a revised edition of her popular NCFR webinar from 2018. Drawing on insights from hosting a Family Science careers podcast, Dr. Jordan will share new advice on how to search for jobs and how to connect one's own experience when applying for jobs.
By attending this webcast, participants will be able to:
- identify personal and professional goals;
- use face-to-face and electronic methods to explore a variety of career options;
- effectively communicate how one’s Family Science background connects to various areas of practice; and
- market oneself throughout the job exploration process.
Attendees will also be able to practice the job search process during this webinar using scenarios Family Science graduates have encountered in real-life interviews.
Approved for 1.0 hour of CFLE continuing education credit.
