On July 27, 2016, the LSA and its Special Interest Group on Linguistics Beyond Academia hosted a webinar presentation and panel discussion on Job Recruitment: The View from the Other Side of the Table. The webinar featured Melissa Reitkopp, an executive recruiter in the Washington D.C. area who specializes in recruiting 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.
 
Also on the panel with Melissa were Anastasia Nylund (Program Director, MA in Language and Communication, Georgetown University) and Daniel Ginsberg (Professional Fellow, American Anthropological Association).  Anna Trester (Title? FrameWorks Institute) was moderator.
