Join us each Tuesday to learn what it will take to successfully complete each step of the academic job search process from preparing all of the components of an application to negotiating the job offer. You may RSVP for all workshops here. Please complete the form only once.
October 20: The Process Overview
This workshop will provide useful information about the job search process in academia. Information will be provided about helpful tips when starting your job search, where and how to look for openings, as well as what materials need to be prepared.
October 27: Curriculum Vitae and Cover Letters
This workshop will address how to write vitae and cover letters when searching for jobs in academia. Importance will be placed on format and content while highlighting career tips useful when applying for positions with a teaching and/or research emphasis.
November 4: Teaching, Research and Diversity Statements
We’ll provide an overview of teaching, research, and diversity statements, describe how they are used in the academic job search process, and provide guidance on how to write them. There will be opportunities during the session to start the process of writing these statements.
November 10: The Interview
Career Counseling and Support Services will be presenting an interview skills workshop. The focus of the Workshop will be on being proactive in the interview so that students feel that they have control over what is being communicated and strategies for answering specific questions that are commonly asked.
November 17: Negotiating the Job Offer
Learn what to do when a search committee is prepared to offer you a faculty position. We’ll provide strategies for responding to a department’s offer, share some of the common elements of job offers around which candidates might negotiate, and introduce approaches that can help both parties—the job candidate and the hiring department—communicate effectively throughout the process of negotiation.
