Unsure about your next career move?  Feel like you're the only one that doesn't have it figured out? 

Join us for the latest in a series of webinars on career topics sponsored by the LSA's Special Interest Group (SIG) on Linguistics Beyond Academia.

“'Planned happenstance' Career planning for linguists" will feature linguist and career coach Jess Bennett (University of the West of England, Employability and Enterprise Services). This webinar will be an interactive and conversational exploration of the conversation that is Jess' favorite one to navigate: "I don't know what to do, everyone is asking me where I am going next, and all of my peers seem to have everything figured out!"  Jess will walk us through how she would approach this conversation with a linguist, touching on the following themes: Flexibly Navigating the World of Work, Uncertainty Intolerance, Reframing Networking, Approaching Career Services: Bridging the Perceived Disconnect, and Building Spaces for Collaboration. 

Whether you're a current student wondering about your future career choices, a recent graduate actively looking for work, an under- or unemployed linguist looking for ways to jump-start your career, or a mid-career linguist looking for a change, this webinar will have something for you.  There will be plenty of time for question & and answer, so come prepared. 

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, April 25 from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM US EDT.

Registration is free, but priority will be given to LSA members.  Click here for more information and to register for the webinar.
