Description. Are you preparing materials to go on the job market this spring? This workshop is designed to demystify the process, and to address the specific needs and questions of those graduate students who are embarking on this exciting (if a little scary!) experience. Whether you’re riding an elevator with members of the search committee or giving a formal presentation, you’ll need to be prepared to talk about your areas of expertise. In this interactive session, participants will learn how to share their knowledge and experience in 2 to 20 minutes. Participants should come prepared to practice sharing information in front of a group of peers.
Learning Outcomes. After the session, participants will be able to:
· Effectively present themselves as a candidates for academic or professional jobs
· Describe the key elements of short or longer job talk
· Share the key elements they want to express in a job talk
· Develop a working plan for next steps in the job search
Presenter. Beth Boehm, Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies and English faculty.
