Meet Amy McLaughlin, Career & Internship Specialist for Sociology Undergraduates
Greetings! It is my mission to help Sociology students find and secure meaningful internships that will allow you to apply what you’ve learned to the job market. I have been a part of the University of Maryland for many years and have enjoyed working with students in many different ways, giving me valuable insight into helping students become their own best advocates. According to the President’s Promise at the University of Maryland, every student should have the opportunity to participate activities outside the classroom that will enhance their experience at UM. Remember, these kinds of activities will:
- Clarify career interests
- Build your network
- Exercise your leadership skills
- Give you a competitive edge
- Broaden your horizons
- Strengthen your skill sets
It’s never too early to start planning. There are many different kinds of internships so we can work to find one that suits your needs. I look forward to working with you to take advantage of the many opportunities available to enhance your academic journey.
Set up a meeting today by emailing me at amclaug1 [at] umd.edu or calling 301 405-6389. Or drop by the Undergraduate Office (2108 PJM Art/Soc Bldg) to start exploring your options!
