Landing that Job!

8:30 am – 11:30 am     |     General: $30     Students: $20 
Conveners: Amber Hardison and Liz Canuel 


This half-day workshop is designed for students and early-career scientists who are starting the job search. Graduate school provides the strong technical training and skills needed to excel at a new job, but often students and postdocs aren’t sure how to navigate the job search and application process. This workshop aims to provide advice on key aspects of the job search, such as writing a resume, interviewing, and negotiating for positions.

Speakers from diverse employer sectors that have experience with hiring (e.g., academic, industry, non-profit, government) will lead the discussion, representing different career trajectories, as well as diverse viewpoints on the hiring process. The schedule will include time for one or more “hands-on” activities, which may include speed networking with potential employers, mock interviews, or a resume editing workshop.
