Professional Development

The Professional Development Series was established in Spring 2003 as a means to help students become successful working linguists by giving them some practical knowledge and skills that will be useful in professional life. Speakers discuss such topics as employment opportunities for linguists and skills necessary for both academic and non-academic positions.

Past talks have highlighted an array of topics: resumes, writing abstracts, grants/how to find funding, non-academic opportunities for linguists and strategies for succeeding in academia.
