Graduate Community of Learning: Professional Websites for the Job Market

Graduate Community of Learning: Professional Websites for the Job Market

It’s never too early to begin building a professional presence online. Whether you’re pursuing academic, alternative-academic, or post-academic careers, creating a professional website can help you put your best foot forward with future colleagues and employers. In this workshop, we’ll talk about conceptual and practical considerations for building an online presence, look at some examples from scholars and practitioners in your field, and set you up with your own (free!) website through digital.brynmawr.edu.  Digital.brynmawr.edu can also be used to host digital exhibitions, blogs, digital publications, databases, and much, much more. And best of all—you can take everything you create in digital.brynmawr.edu with you when you graduate. 

Alicia Peaker (PhD, Northeastern) is the Digital Scholarship Specialist at Bryn Mawr. She has led or contributed to dozens of digital scholarship projects including the award winning Our Marathon: The Boston Bombing Digital Archive and the Women Writers Project

This year, the Digital Scholarship program is sponsoring a weekly meetup for graduate students across Bryn Mawr to learn, share, and discuss all things digital scholarship. Some weeks will feature workshops, research presentations, professional development opportunities, or Q&A sessions with experts and other graduate students. Other weeks will be informal opportunities to meet graduate students outside of your department to talk, share, or troubleshoot. No technical expertise or experience with Digital Scholarship necessary! We welcome all graduate students curious about digital scholarship.
Interested in paid teaching and research opportunities? Come to a meetup to find out how you can work with us on digital scholarship projects, develop pedagogical materials, and/or teach digital scholarship workshops.
