We invite you to join us for our new alumni event that centers around careers in linguistics. Our guest speakers will be talking about their career paths and facilitate workshops.
Ai Taniguchi (Ph.D. 2017) will use her experience as a professor at Carleton University to teach you how to develop an accessible academic talk for students, community members, and future employers.
Steve Johnson (Ph.D. 2012) is a Lead Curriculum Designer at IXL Learning. He’ll help you navigate the career landscape outside academia, and to develop a résumé that translates your linguistic skills into business terms.
Join us Friday afternoon to meet Ai and Steve and hear about their career journeys. You can also watch a research lightning talk competition judged
by Ai, who was the winner of the 2019 Linguistics Society of America Five Minute Linguist Competition.
