Friday, October 26, 2012, Half Day 8:30am-12:30pm (workshop fee)

At the same time doctoral students are engaged in the most demanding research project of their career to date, the dissertation, they find themselves thrust onto the job market stage with little time for adequate preparation. The doctoral student boot camp provides students with the opportunity to perfect their CV, teaching philosophy, and research agenda statement well in advance of graduation. Facilitators will provide professional advice and answer questions about cover letters, answering difficult interview questions, proper dress, job talks, and other related topics. Participants can take advantage of CV and interview critiques provided by experienced professionals. This workshop provides a unique opportunity to prepare for successful entrance to the academic job market.
