The LSA and its Special interest Group on Linguistics Beyond Academia had a webinar presentation and discussion with Melissa Reitkopp, an executive recruiter in the Washington D.C. area who specializes in professionals with advanced degrees (MS/MBA and PhD/MD). She works with social scientists, statisticians, economists, data analytic experts and market researchers doing quantitative and analytic work in a range of fields including healthcare, education, policy, business and consulting. As part of this webinar, she makes her perspective and expertise available to linguists thinking about how to use their skills in applied research contexts.
