Topics covered will include advice and resources for launching your career
in audio preservation, moving across disciplinary boundaries or job sectors,
and putting your best foot forward when you're ready to take your next
professional steps. We'll discuss how to keep learning once you've left the
structure of graduate school, as well as how to keep your spirits up during
the stressful job-search process. Attendees should come away with concrete
strategies for effectively framing their skill sets, actively shaping their
careers, and enacting positive change in a professional world where stress
is abundant and certainty remains elusive.
