This is a two part seminar. Part 1 includes details of the job search and interview process for both Masters and Ph.D. students. 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. 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.

Part 2 (later in the semester) will cover: 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 both Masters and Ph.D. students seeking either full time employment or summer internships.
