For Linguists

The Linguistic Society of America has provided a forum for a number of presentations, workshops, and resource sessions at both the Annual Meeting and the Summer Linguistic Institute. Below are a number of presentations and handouts on the subject of professional development as well as other non-LSA resources, both divided by stage of career. 
The Linguistic Society of America YouTube Channel contains videos from past Linguistic Institutes and the LSA Video Archive. Please visit our YouTube channel at: www.youtube.com/LingSocAm
The LSA’s Resource Hub gathers all of the LSA’s information assets in one easy-to-reach location on our website.  Users may conduct a general search by key word, or may filter their search according to target audience, issue(s) addressed, type of resource, and year the resource was created. Explore the Resource Hub today!
At present, academic jobs are scarce and they are likely to remain scarce for the remainder of the decade. On top of this, some people think that linguistics has been hit particularly hard. Getting even one job offer these days is an achievement. Do not allow academic elitism to deter you from taking a job that you feel fairly good about, or to make you dissatisfied with such a job.
Students are the future of the linguistics profession.
