Building an academic, alternative academic (altac), or non-academic (nonac/postac) career isn’t just about finishing the papers, getting through the dissertation, or publishing that article.

It’s also about seeking out opportunities both inside and outside the academy to expand your portfolio of skills, make new connections, and build a career.

This is especially true in the context of tight job markets that demand increasing experience for even the most temporary or entry-level job.

Knowing this is one thing, but how do we find and seize career opportunities? And how do we do that while also doing the daily work necessary to keep the jobs we have?

Finding and Seizing Career Opportunities

In this month’s free Ideas on Fire webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski explains how to find and seize career opportunities related to teaching, writing, mentorship, and related fields. Special attention is paid to finding opportunities outside the academy to broaden career choices.
