Linguistics jobs interviews
Did you study linguistics? Did you go onto an interesting job, especially outside academia? Would you like to share your hard-earned career wisdom with some beginning linguists who want to learn more about what their options are?

Maybe you'd like to answer a few questions for my linguistics jobs series at All Things Linguistic!

Consent check: I agree that my responses to this form will be published as a part of the linguistics jobs series on the blog All Things Linguistic. My only compensation is a warm fuzzy feeling from helping junior linguists but I retain the right to republish my answers anywhere.
(Will *probably* be published, assuming that Gretchen decides they're of interest to readers of All Things Linguistic, i.e. not spam or something. If you're replying after the end of September 2016, please ping me somewhere eg email, twitter so that I know someone has replied as I may not be checking this form a year later. If you'd rather retain more control over your words, feel free to publish it on your own blog or website and just send me a link so I can post about it.)
