You’ve found a compelling job advertisement and have written a strong resume. What more do you need? People! Networking helps to ensure that your job materials land on the right desk, improves your chances of getting interviews, and opens you up to new opportunities and experiences. Building upon the job analysis exercise from week two, this workshop discusses strategies for cultivating a network and presenting yourself professionally. Practicing the skills introduced in this workshop can propel you from submitting the application to interviewing for the job.
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.
