April 5 & 7 GSA Job Market Workshops

Dear A&H Graduate Students:

If you are planning to pursue an academic career and “go on the job market” next academic year (2017-2018), or you are planning to at some future time and are curious about what you can do now to better prepare yourself for the future, we invite you to participate in the first in a series of meetings about the process of seeking a position.

At our spring meeting on Wed April 5 and/or Friday April 7 at 1pm in 4.122, we will discuss:
*The job search timeline: what materials to prepare when
*Sample materials, including cover letters and CVs
*Creating a summer plan
*Surviving the emotional rollercoaster

We are offering two different time slots for your convenience. Light refreshments will be provided. Please join us at one of them!

Here are a few links to help demystify the job search process:
