Lx Beyond Academia SIG events at LSA

The Linguistics Beyond Academia SIG is pleased to announce our activities at the 2016 LSA Annual Meeting in Washington DC: We will be hosting a salon and a “linguistics career mixer.” For a more detailed description of each, check out page 17 of the LSA program.
Salon: Friday, 3:30-5 pm, January 8th
Linguistics Career Mixer: Saturday, 3-5 pm, January 9th
  • The salon is a chance for linguists working outside of academia to get together in a relaxed atmosphere to share experiences, resources, and tell the story of the transition from the university to the business world.
  • The mixer is about creating opportunities for fostering curiosity around professional applications of linguistics for the next generation of Career Linguists. It is not a job fair or formal interviews! Our goal is to provide a setting for students to ask questions and discuss life outside of academia.

    If you are a professional and would be willing to act as a resource at our mixer, please RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1kjVQ7R1a9pMg2U5dy83Jmmfs3F_dcCGTmP-3PmKHklM/viewform

There will also be a number of career panels at the LSA and ADS conferences, as well as opportunities for grad students to sign up for one-on-one career mentoring! Thank you for helping us spread the word!!!
