Community Service Opportunities

Community Service Job Fair

at California State University Dominguez Hills

Even though the Fair is over, bear in mind that our office of Student Development does have established relationships with all these agencies. They can help you plan internships and community service in preparation for agency careers.

The event was co-sponsored by Cooperative Education, the Loker University Student Union, and Student Development (Counseling, Career and Employment Services), as part of CSUDH Serves, a two week celebration of the campus' involvement in community service.

24 community agencies confirmed their participation. They offered information about internships and part-time and full-time positions. Some of the positions were:

  • youth care worker
  • social worker intern
  • behavioral science intern
  • child care facilitiy site supervisor
  • teacher
  • teacher's assistant
  • social worker
  • police officer
  • deputy sheriff
  • psychology interns
  • clinical social work interns
  • MFCCs
  • LCSWs
  • program assistant
  • program intern
  • graphic design intern
  • marketing intern
  • information systems intern

The student development web site,, has a list of all the agencies who came with connections to those agencies that have web sites. Link to the Community Service Job Fair - last link on page. Also you can go to Student Development office for a list of the agencies and a copy of their suggestions on how to get the most out of these connections.

Job Statistics

With all due respect to the popularity of psychology, the Sociology Department would like to call your attention to job statistics posted on October 30 by Larry Gray of Student Development:

The largest number of jobs posted on Job Trak for July through September 1999 were:

662 in Sales and Marketing
621 in Computer and Information systems
490 in Accounting and Finance
487 in Secondary Teaching
451 in Business and Management
329 in Public Affairs and Social Service
276 in Education - Teaching Elementary
228 in Communications and Media
104 in Art
077 in Psychology

Traditionally sociology students go into teaching, public affairs, and social service occupations. Together those categories were listed cumulatively for 1029 jobs. One of the major advantages of a social science major is that you are often not locked into a specific career path, but can change over time to follow social trends. Many of our students do, indeed, go into management positions also. Keep your choices open.

Critical Psychology and Action Research Conference
A Look at How Professional Conferences on the Edge of Theory are Formed

This is not a student conference. Should any of our students wish to participate please see jeanne for further information on how to connect with faculty who are likely to participate.


13-16 JULY 1999 
International Conference 

"This conference has three aims, and the final call for papers is for three different kinds of work: (i) to bring together critical psychologists, and for this we invite critical psychologists working practically and/or theoretically to submit proposals; (ii) to bring together good examples of action research, and for this we invite action researchers working with the theory and/or practice of action research to submit proposals; and (iii) to expore connections between critical psychology and action research, and for this we invite psychologist working at the interface of critical perspectives and action research to present their work."

"We have papers so far from Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa, United States and Venezuela. The final deadline for abstracts is 31st April 1999 (100-150 words for papers)."

"The conference is designed to provide an overview of key themes in critical psychology and action research, and the links between the two, and so the structure takes us through conceptual / practical / historical foundations, theoretical / cultural / institutional resources, arenas in which action research has been developed, and threads of debate and difference between perspectives."

"The conference will provide a forum to discuss ways of changing the world through varieties of action research, and to critically reflect on how psychology needs to change to be up to the task. There will be keynote talks, individual papers, symposia and workshops. The conference will encompass theories, methods and examples of action research. Sessions will focus on issues of conscientization, cultural destabilization, education inclusion campaigns, feminist research, mental health intervention, practical deconstruction and radical therapeutic activities. Abstracts of successful submissions will be published at the conference, and selected papers published in Annual Review of Critical Psychology."

"Further information on the conference is on the Bolton Institute Psychology Website."
