We’ve been featuring the My Public Lands Magazine. Plan your next trip and enjoy the full online version of the My Public Lands Magazine, Spring 2015. For more photos of each location, visit our My Public Lands Flickr

We continued our #WomenInSTEM Wednesday campaign. Each Wednesday, BLM’s social media will post about women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM. Last week, we featured a story about Niki Cutler, Hydrologist for BLM-Nevada’s Sierra Front Field Office who took local 8th grader Mattie on a field trip as a “youth exposure to Natural Resource/ Hydrology opportunity”. See the post here:

I've always been interested in linguistics, and I want to study it in college, but I'm not exactly sure what kind of careers it opens up. What kind of jobs are there in linguistics other than teaching? (Thanks so much, I love your blog!)

Good timing! Gretchen has just updated the All Things Linguistic post about linguistics and jobs. Basically, while the list of jobs that has linguistics as a definite requirement is not massive, there are many jobs and careers for which ordered reasoning, problem solving and critical thinking are key skills, and linguistics gives you great training in those areas. It’s always worth checking out this LSA post from ATL about translating your linguistics skills for the job market.

I have friends from my linguistics undergraduate days who now have amazing and diverse jobs - linguistics didn’t necessarily lead them directly to those jobs, but it’s helped them along the way. I’ve been thinking of doing a series of interview posts for a while now - add a favourite to this post if you’d like to see that, and if enough people are interested I’ll start emailing people!

Hi! I have a question. I am a linguistics undergrad who was listening to talk about STEM carreers. Do you consider linguistics to fit under the "s" in stem? (science is often defined as anything using the scientific method). Why/Why not? Thanks!!

I think that linguistics does fall under the S in STEM, because linguists should always remember that they’re working with an observable phenomenon that is separate from their own feelings and intuitions about that phenomenon - but I think that the degree to which you place yourself under the S as a linguist depends on your research area and methods.

An acoustic phonetician can record speech and analyse it using objective acoustic parameters, a sociolinguist might design a survey to test language attitudes, and a semanticist might look at uses of a word in a large corpus get an idea of the many senses of a single word. An anthropological linguist may spend a lot of time as a participant observer in a community and may feel themselves removed somewhat from the idea of the scientific method, or they might use psycholinguist experiments to figure out if people in this community frame their idea of time differently. The same linguist may even do both at different times of the day (or at the same time).

If you’re a computational linguist you can also find yourself as situated in the T of STEM as you like, and I sometimes feel like formal semanticists aren’t that far from the M (but that might just be my impression). Basically, the thing I like about linguistics is the variety of ways in which we can approach language as an object of study. There is really something for everybody!

Things People Reading Your Resume Wish You Knew

After speaking with many, many recruiters, here are some hard truths we’ve learned:

1) If your relevant experience, education, or skills are hard to find at a glance, your resume might as well be blank.

2) If it’s not immediately clear from your experience why you’re applying, no one will connect the dots for you.

3) If your resume is difficult to skim, it probably won’t be read at all.

4) If you expect to get your resume in front of a hiring manger, you need to first make sure you get through HR.

5)  If your contact info isn’t correct, nothing else matters.

See the full list here.

“In the past, just getting a bachelor’s degree was enough to have job security. Now, not even a master’s degree is enough, you have to get a Ph.D, and still go beyond that. People are always competing over everything and constantly trying to prove their worth. Companies don’t even appreciate them that much; it’s really upsetting. However, I think it’s no one’s fault. So, I have started to think differently. It has pushed me to realize that I have to be my own boss and work according to my own values.”

“예전에는 학사를 받는 것만으로도 직업의 안정성이 보장됐었어요. 하지만 지금은 석사로도 모자라서 박사 뿐만 아니라 더 많은 것을 해내야돼요. 사람들은 끊임없이 경쟁하며 그들의 가치를 증명해내려고 해요. 하지만 회사들은 그런 사람들의 진가를 알아보지도 못 하죠. 정말 답답한 일이에요. 하지만 그건 누구의 잘못도 아니에요. 저는 그래서 좀 다르게 생각하게 됐어요. 내 스스로가 내 주인이 되고 자신의 가치를 위해서 일해야 한다고 깨달았죠.”

KEEP IN MIND: if these are not accurate for you, although I appreciate the input, please understand that these are guesses based off of how each sign is known to act. These are stereotypes for each sign, and they are more likely to be correct if a person has the sign repeated often in their Natal Chart, not just once as their sun sign. I do love hearing if it is accurate, though! ❤️☺️ Please don’t be rude if it is not, though! Plus, remember that I had to choose 3 or less jobs for each one; there are lots more that are common for each sign! 😁

“No job is too small if you really believe it will help you grow as a person”

Faye Balanon, Child Protection Officer at UNICEF Philippines – Tacloban Field Office

What does the average working day look like for you?

I usually wake up at 7am and I’m at the office by 8am. On any given day, my work might require me to be very mobile. I visit local government units to provide technical support and help them develop child protection training programmes. I talk to facilitators, discuss their strengths and weakness and how can wefurther support them in their work. I help train the local child protection councils and helping them identify issues and action plans. I also facilitate life skills modules for young people.

How would you explain your job to a 5 year old?

I work with parents on how to keep children safe.

How did you join UNICEF?  

I was a consultant for UNICEF’s Child Protection section working on the child protection information management system when Typhoon Yolanda struck. I worked as social worker before and I had experience in disaster response and providing psychosocial support. I was sent to Tacloban on 21 November 2013 to support the Immediate Response Team in typhoon-affected areas.

What’s the hardest project you’ve ever worked on?

The Typhoon Yolanda response challenged me physically, emotionally and professionally as I have never planned interventions for such a wide scope – thousands of children and families across three regions.

What are the most satisfying parts of your job?  

When I see officials or local child protection councils understand what Child Protection is. When children tell you in their own words whom they would report cases of abuse to.  

What inspires you?  

Children – seeing them smile, have fun. I just want to protect that smile with everything that I have.

What do you think are the biggest challenges facing children?

Coping with poverty, which would make them vulnerable to all sorts of child protection issues. But also that a lot of families are separating – mostly from failed marriages. Different sectors provide different messages on this. Children and young people get confused and are not given the proper guidance and protection.

How do you spend your free time?

Read comic books. Ride my bike. Watch a movie. Take new pictures of my toys.

What do you miss most about being a kid?  

Nothing. I’m still a kid at heart!

What’s one of the biggest risks you’ve ever taken in your life?

Climbing Mount Arayat a year after Mount Pinatubo exploded. No trail. No water source. Very steep, Ash everywhere. But I reached the summit!

What advice would you give to people reading this post? 

Read everything you can get your hands on. Work hard. No job is too small if you really believe it will help you grow as a person, especially when you’re just starting in your career. A job well done will get you more jobs!
