Superlinguo Linguistics Jobs Interview series
Blog post series (Superlinguo)
Over 50 short interviews with people who studied linguistics (a single undergraduate subject through to a PhD) and then gone on to a wide variety of careers outside of academia. Interviews ask the same questions each time, but get very different answers.

Career advice: Linguistics + X
Blog post (All Things Linguistic)
A blog post from Gretchen McCulloch about taking your linguistics into any career path. Linguistics is the background that you already have, and X is whatever else you like doing or have experience in or can develop skills with. 

A distraction:

Maybe take ‘supervillain’ off your list of possible careers.

Share Mutual Intelligibility Resources

About Mutual Intelligibility

Mutual Intelligibility is a project to connect linguistics instructors with online resources, especially as so much teaching is shifting quickly online due to current events. It's produced by Lauren Gawne and Gretchen McCulloch, with the support of our patrons on Lingthusiasm.

Mutual Intelligibility posts will always remain free, but if you have a stable income and find that they’re reducing your stress and saving you time, we're able to fund these because of the Lingthusiasm Patreon and your contributions there

Here’s where you can tell us which topics would be useful for you. The more requests we get for a specific topic, the more it helps us prioritize resources that will help the most people. 

Here’s where you can send us links (of either things you’ve made or have found useful) for potential inclusion in future newsletters. You can send a single link, or a set of three which may become a 3 Links guest-post! (With credit to you.) 

If you have other comments, suggestions, or ideas of ways to help, please email mutual.intellig@gmail.com
