Understanding the Academic Job Search Process Workshop

Are you interested in a career in higher education? This workshop is geared towards students on or about to be on the job market, but is useful for those looking ahead so they can better plan their time in their graduate program. This presentation introduces you to the essential elements of planning for an academic career, with a focus on those steps when you are close to being on the job market. There will be time for Q & A. Topics will include:

  • understanding the job market cycle and the realities of the academic job market,
  • determining readiness to go on the market,
  • identifying job opportunities, understanding how to present yourself for different types of institutions,
  • how search committees work and preparing for screening interviews.
