      Q. Give examples of Sociological imagination and Sociological perspective

      A. One of the examples of the Sociological imagination and perspective is that 2 years ago when I apply for the job at Macy’s and I got rejected so I thought it had to do with my age and I felt really awful but then my friends also apply to the same job and they told her that the store was closing at that location so a lot of people were losing their job and some had to relocate. so this shows how my personal issue was social issues too.
