About this Workshop

How can practical academic skills be applied to professional work outside of the academy?

The Professional Community and Communications Project invites graduate students to participate in our first annual (virtual) event “Career Pathways for Humanists: Writing and Communications” on April 5, 2022, at 12:00 p.m.

Students are invited to consider how their training as an academic communicator might transfer across alternative career paths in government and non-profit work. This virtual networking event focuses on increasing students’ familiarity with the professional writing that is conventional to work in government and nonprofit professional sectors.

During the event, enrolled graduate students will have the opportunity to speak with PhD alumni, learn more about their area of expertise, build a sense of community, and strengthen professional networks and relationships.

Event alumni guest speakers include:

  • Dr. Kara Alaimo, Associate Professor of Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations at Hofstra University; previously worked at the United Nations, U.S. Department of Treasury, and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation
  • Dr. Jonathan Hill, Senior Administrative Analyst at the New York Department of Transportation
  • Dr. Lindsay S. Krasnoff, Global Communications and Sports Specialist; previously worked at the Office of the Historian in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Public Affairs
  • Dr. Melissa Wansin Wong, Director of Client and Donor Engagement at LAPA Fundraising
