Event Details

Besides working 80-hour weeks and publishing five papers a year, what can you do to get an edge on all those other graduate students and post-docs competing for scarce jobs? Or, if you’ve been contemplating getting off the academic bus, where’s the exit door? How do you create more opportunities for yourself? One possible answer to these questions can come from creating a public presence online through the tools of social media. Developing a well-managed portfolio of posts and online articles helps establish you as a thinker, a teacher, and a public intellectual. Going online can be a way to translate your research to the general public and to effectively communicate your passion about your work. It may also be the X-factor that helps you enter the next phase of your career.

This workshop for graduate and professional students at Duke includes a discussion with Jeff Cohen and Elizabeth Michalka and hands-on workshops that focus on translating your research and experiences to broader audiences.

This event is sponsored by the Thompson Writing Program, Duke's Office of News and Communications and the Nicholas School of the Environment.
