On 12/7/2020 I am organizing a webinar for the American Anthropological Association with two colleagues, Astrid Countee and Stephen Paff. The title of the webinar is Breaking Into Tech: A Career Workshop.
Description of the Webinar
This workshop will prepare anthropologists to work in the tech industry in roles such as UX, product management, data science, and software engineering. Topics covered will include a discussion on the tech landscape, the need to reframe our academic experience in business terms, tips for designing a resume and portfolio, and a discussion on some additional training that anthropologists may wish to seek before applying to a tech job. Following the presentation, the group will break into smaller sessions where facilitators will help participants reframe their individual research experiences for a tech resume.
