Resources for an Expansive Job Search: Humanities & Social Sciences

Compiled by Anne Mitchell Whisnant, Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Resources for an Expansive Job Search: Humanities & Social Sciences includes a mix of sites that discuss larger issues involved in converting graduate training in the humanities or social sciences to a nonacademic career, and sites that include job listings. Because individuals’ career trajectories can be so varied, a big part of successfully transitioning from graduate school to satisfying employment involves plugging into the broader conversation about the wide range of careers actually pursued by those with this training. While many of these resources are specifically geared to some of the problems faced by those with Ph.D.s, much of their advance is relevant and valuable to those with master’s degrees who either seek employment, or who are considering continuing to the Ph.D.
