Linguistics Beyond Academia SIG Events

The Linguistics Beyond Academia Special Interest Group (SIG) is pleased to announce its activities at the 2016 LSA Annual Meeting in Washington DC:

  • Salon: Friday, 3:30-5 pm, January 8th
  • Linguistics Career Mixer: Saturday, 3:30-5 pm, January 9th


The salon is a chance for linguists working outside of academia to get together in a relaxed atmosphere to share experiences, resources, and tell the story of the transition from the university to the business world.

The idea of the mixer is to create opportunities for fostering curiosity around professional applications of linguistics for the next generation of Career Linguists. It is not a job fair or formal interviews! The goal is to provide a setting for students to ask questions and discuss life outside of academia.

If you are a professional and would be willing to act as a resource at our mixer, please RSVP here.

There will also be a number of career panels at the LSA and ADS conferences, as well as opportunities for grad students to sign up for one-on-one career mentoring.

Please join our Facebook group for updates, news, and more!
