Considering Alt-Ac: Ideas for Rhet/Comp Grad

Recommended Posts

I'm in my second year of my Rhet/Comp Phd Program and I'm starting to consider alt-ac positions (for various reasons from job market to just general burnout). Anyone out there pursue jobs outside of academia with a humanities degree?

Obviously writing and research are key skills. I work in a digital center on campus and some programming skills, I could always go digital humanities though I'm not sure outside of library work what that would look like. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I recommend looking into opportunities to work in an industry that is trying to navigate the increasing rate of technological innovation. IME, public and private clients are often eager to procure and to deploy technologies that are not quite ready for prime time or, more importantly, are not going to serve well the interests of end users.
