Location: Research Commons - Virtual

Cost: Free

Please note that you will need to register for each session individually.

October 4: The Process Overview


This workshop will provide useful information about the job search process in academia. Information shared will include helpful tips when starting your job search, where and how to look for openings, and what materials need to be prepared.

October  11: 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.

October  18: 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.

October 25: 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 1: 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.
