when: Friday, August 29th, 11am to noon
where: SLCC 2300 A&B
Back by popular demand, Dr. Anna Marie Trester, of the Georgetown University MA in Linguistics Language and Communication program and now Associate at the FrameWorks Institute, presents a lively lecture and discussion about considering broad career options from academic fields.
From her own experience in and beyond academic linguistics, Dr. Trester will share tips and strategies for changing the ways we think and talk about academic fields, including real, serious, fun answers to the age-old question “But seriously, what can you do with that?”
Come learn about how linguistics applies to various and numerous fields through real examples and success stories of the people who are living it. And apply Dr. Trester’s approach to reconceptualizing the job search as a journey to your field of choice, reframing from “the dream job” to “what would you do if you could do anything?”
