Why Career Linguist
Career Linguist will help you bring a story approach to career. A linguist’s eye is invaluable in navigating the highly textual genres that surround career education, exploration, and professional self-presentation.
Through increased awareness of how language, and especially narrative, works in these contexts, we aim to provide services to help job seekers better tell stories that do what is wanted and don’t do what isn’t.
