Compelling Communication: Application Deadline

This two-session Compelling Communication workshop gives you the skills and practice you need for your next important presentation, such as a qualifying exam, conference presentation, research meeting, or job talk.

Compelling Communication will take place on the following two Mondays: Oct. 7 & 14 from 4:45 - 6:15 PM. Due to the workshop's interactive format, full participation in both sessions is required.

Accelerate Your Academic Job Search: Negotiation [Session 8 of 8] (PhDs & Postdocs)

The final stage of the job search is negotiating the terms of your appointment so that you can thrive. These "negotiations" are not adversarial, instead we use the framing of "collaborative problem solving." We will discuss the conventional steps of the process of negotiating the details of a faculty job offer and review all of the things you can ask for, including salary, teaching, and research start-up funds. You will also learn how to navigate multiple offers. Sign up for each of the eight sessions SEPARATELY.

Accelerate Your Academic Job Search: Cover Letter Lab [Session 7 of 8] (PhDs & Postdocs)

The cover letter introduces you to the committee and connects your accomplishments to their job announcement. In this session we will briefly review tips for writing cover letters, and then you will be able to work on your actual cover letters. You will get feedback from career coaches and from peers. Bring your laptop, drafts of letters, and the job announcements you are responding to. Sign up for each of the eight sessions SEPARATELY.

Accelerate Your Academic Job Search: Teaching Statements [Session 6 of 8] (PhDs & Postdocs)

 What makes an effective teaching statement? You will review examples of statements from successful job seekers. You will begin to identify the points you want to make and the examples you want to use. We will also discuss how to provide "evidence of teaching excellence" and succeeding at the "teaching demonstration." Sign up for each of the eight sessions SEPARATELY.
