The faculty job search usually includes first-round interviews by video, phone or at a conference. Learn strategies to prepare for these short interviews. What questions can you anticipate? How should you set up your space to look and sound your best? We will devote time to practicing your answers to commonly asked questions.
Your CV is one of the most important documents you create and revise as a graduate student or postdoc. CVs are expected for Fellowship applications, when applying for a postdoctoral position, and for academic job searches. We will review features of effective CVs, and then we will work together to improve your CV. Bring your laptop and a printed copy of your CV. You will get feedback from peers and coaches.
The Interview Lab is an interactive meetup for you to learn about and practice interviewing techniques for jobs outside of academia. Learn what employers are looking for in an interview and how to handle a variety of behavioral questions. We’ll discuss and practice how to market the many skills and experiences you’ve gained during your graduate studies or postdoc and you will work with peers to develop the questions you want to ask. Note: this is a general workshop on behavioral fit interviewing, and will not cover specific interview types like technical and case interviews.
