#Femlead chat on informational interviews

I’m leading the #Femlead chat on Twitter this coming Tuesday, 16 April, between 2 and 2:30pm EDT (GMT-4). Please join me! From the University of Venus description:

#femlead is for those who lead, those with vision, those who seek to support one another in the challenges and opportunities facing us in all areas of academic life (faculty, staff, administrators).  #femlead is female-centered but you don’t have to be a woman to participate in this conversation—all civil and constructive voices are welcome!

We’ll be tweeting about informational interviews, and about using them as part of an #alt-ac (“alternative academic,” i.e., non-tenure-track) career exploration/search. To get you started, have a look at the Q & As on my site. They are wonderfully rich resources for anyone contemplating life after graduate school. I’ve also blogged about how I learned to love informational interviews. Here’s what else you can take a look at:

If you can’t make it, or you missed it, the chat will be archived here.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what the heck a Twitter chat is, here are a couple articles to get you started. Read about how to join a Twitter chat, and what the benefits are.
