Joseph Fruscione is reinventing himself as a freelance copyeditor, proofreader, and writing consultant. He’s handled several editing projects in the last few months, including: a scholarly book manuscript; nonprofit organization’s proposal in response to a government RFP; two Master’s theses; and a part-memoir, part-leadership book project. Yet, he’s still finding his way through post-ac and the private sector. He is currently in his last semester as an adjunct assistant professor in the University Writing Program at George Washington University. Joe has worked with Jennifer Polk and others in writing about the post-ac job search, self-marketing, and (in Chris Humphrey’s phrase) being “A professional _____ with a PhD.” He has a PhD in English (George Washington University, 2005) and has published a book, written several articles and reviews, and presented at numerous conferences and the Library of Congress. Find him on LinkedIn and Twitter (@ProfessorF74).
As our “post-ac expert in training,” Joe’s preliminary list of blog posts is as follows:
*When Do You Decide to Go Post-Ac, and (How) Do You Blog About it?
*What Does a Former Academic ‘Do’ Outside Academia (and how can you do more of it)?
*Using LinkedIn, Twitter, and Other Social Media Platforms for Outreach
*Interviews–Informational and Otherwise
