Over the past several years, most of the 100+ posts have been written by Josh Boldt, but we do occasionally accept submissions. Opinions welcome. If you have a story idea or if you’d like to write for Order of Education, contact Josh Boldt.

We also maintain a popular job board for Alternate Academic or Alt-Ac job postings. Postings are curated to reflect careers that are attractive to current and former academics who are interested in finding an alternative to traditional academic life. Josh Boldt established the job board during a personal search for an interesting alt-ac position.
