This chapter explores an ‘accidental’ entry into sociology as a career, and the emerging passion of the author’s interest in sociology and her ever-present negotiation of the identity/position of herself as ‘sociologist’. The chapter also discusses how social background impact on career trajectories, and offers advice for aspiring early career sociologists.
