The Elon Job Network (EJN) is an online database where department supervisors and community partners post on-campus and federal work-study jobs.

An interactive session designed to assist students with translating the student employment experience for post-graduate or internship resume.

The Game of Social Life
This session addresses bias, understanding, and inclusion. The session is designed to increase awareness and understanding of between-group variations and how external factors impact decisions and outcomes. In thinking about a given person’s successes or failures in life, we might assume that those outcomes are probably due to a combination of internal factors (a person’s own motivation and hard work) and external factors (such as the conditions under which one is born, the social support that a person receives, or the ways in which the policies, rules, and reward structures of a society affect that person). As we play this game students examine the relative balance between free choice and external factors in determining outcomes in life. This is all done through assignment of an interactive strategy game and class discussion of experiences based on player profiles.
Session length: 90 minutes
