In this interactive workshop, we’ll share tips for preparing applications for tenure-track academic positions. We’ll also explore the various components of the academic application, differences between research- and teaching-stream positions, and how to effectively manage your academic references. And, since it’s 2020, we’ll be talking about all of this in the context of… you guessed it! A global pandemic.

The Graduate Student Transitions Series is a peer-based workshop series that focuses on equipping graduate students and recent alumni with resources, strategies and information about a wide range of career paths available post-grad school. These hands-on, skill-building workshops cover a range of topics, from developing essential tools for the job market (CVs, resumes, teaching dossiers) to navigating the job market itself (networking, applying for postdocs, preparing for interviews and job talks).
