Here are another set of slides from our PGF Workshops at the 2011 BSA Conference. These come to us from Phil Jones, a member of the Sociologists Outside Academia group who presented in our session on Negotiating Careers Outside of Academia. Phil shared with us his experience working outside academia, and his suggestions about the kind of things you need to consider in non-academic career paths. His presentation can be found at http://prezi.com/7xzzs7jfo1m_/bsa-annual-conference-pgf-presentation/.
