Ideas on Fire is leading a workshop at Yale University this week for the Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies program on how to navigate the interdisciplinary job search. We’d love to see you there!

Planning Your Interdisciplinary Job Search

Hunting for a job within or beyond academia can itself be a full time job, especially when you’re also trying to finish your dissertation, take care of family and community responsibilities, teach your students, and figure out if you’re going to be moving across the country or globe in a few months.

An interdisciplinary job search brings its own set of challenges as well. But having a concrete plan and support system can mean the difference between burnout and thriving.

In this workshop, you’ll put together that plan and support system so you can find and organize interdisciplinary job opportunities within and beyond the academy, budget your time and finances, keep track of all your applications and materials, draw on your support team for more than letters of recommendation (but also those), and prioritize your health and wellbeing so you can build the career and life you want.

Join us on May 3, 2018, 3:00–4:30 pm ET in New Haven at Yale University, 309 WLH
