This is a two part seminar. Part 1 includes details of the job search and interview process for Masters students, Ph.D. students, and Postdocs. We will discuss what to think about prior to applying for a job, how to apply, details of a resume', details of a Curriculum Vitae (CV), Teaching Statements, and Research Statements.

Part 2 (date TBA) will cover: Once you get a job interview, you need to be prepared. We will discuss preparation, travel, expenses, dress, and what goes on during and after the interview. Once you are offered a job, we will discuss what to consider, how to negotiate, how to decline a job offer, etc.

The information and skills that will be presented are valuable for Masters and Ph.D. students, as well as Postdocs who are seeking either full time employment, or even summer internships.
