Summary:   REGARDING FYI: HTTP://LINGUISTLIST.ORG/ISSUES/17/17-2097.HTML

DEAR COLLEAGUES,

IN MY RECENT POST TO LINGUIST LIST (''FYI: (NON)ACADEMIC INTERDISCIPLINARY
CAREER ISSUES'', HTTP://LINGUISTLIST.ORG/ISSUES/17/17-2097.HTML) I WAS
LOOKING FOR OTHER LINGUISTS WITH AN INTEREST IN DISCUSSING OUTREACH,
INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH, AND ALTERNATIVE CAREER DIRECTIONS.

MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED. IN THIS CASE, I WILL NOT MENTION
RESPONDENTS INDIVIDUALLY BY NAME, SINCE SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT WANT TO GO
PUBLICLY AND PERMANENTLY ON RECORD AS HAVING CONSIDERED NONACADEMIC WORK.

A GREAT RESOURCE THAT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION IS WRK4US, “AN
INTERNATIONAL EMAIL DISCUSSION LIST ON NONACADEMIC CAREERS FOR PEOPLEWITH
GRADUATE EDUCATION IN HUMANITIES, EDUCATION, AND SOCIAL SCIENCE DISCIPLINES”:

HTTPS://LISTS.DUKE.EDU/SYMPA/INFO/WRK4US

HOWEVER, I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD OF A DISCUSSION GROUP THAT TAKES A MORE
LINGUISTIC AND INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVE ON THESE CAREER ISSUES, SO I
CREATED ONE:

HTTP://GROUPS.GOOGLE.COM/GROUP/LINGCAREER

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION, YOU CAN ADD YOURSELF TO THE GROUP
AT THIS WEBSITE (AFTER JOINING GOOGLE GROUPS, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY), OR
E-MAIL ME AND I'LL ADD YOU. SO FAR, WE HAVE SOME INSIGHTFUL PROFILES IN THE
''INTRODUCTIONS'' THREAD, SO CHECK OUT THE ARCHIVES (MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED).
