The presenters discuss practical ways to boost one’s opportunities on the job market and why we should value our professional experiences. They argue that these can help us obtain interesting jobs in language technology and language-education technology. Our goal is to promote intellectual curiosity and “post-degree flexibility,” which are themes that speak to the GSC’s mission.
