You’ve found a job that excites you, one you really want to apply for. Now what? This workshop guides you through the close-reading of the job advertisements that you found during week one and through the production of professional materials—resumes, cover letters, and a basic LinkedIn profile—that respond directly to the type of jobs you’re interested in. At the end of this hands-on, nuts-and-bolts session, tailoring job search materials to specific opportunities will become easier and less stressful. As a result, you’ll be able to send in application materials more quickly when you find jobs that interest you.

About the boot camp:
Moving from academia to the professional world requires knowledge and planning. This three workshop series is open to students from all disciplines, and will help you to develop the knowledge base and skills necessary for finding your first job (outside the academy) after your graduate degree. Though these workshops are meant to be taken together, you can join us for as many as fit your schedule.
