Making a good impression during a campus interview will be the best way to convince search committees that you are the ideal candidate. This requires that you can talk effectively about yourself and your research, ask good questions to the faculty, administrators, and students that you will meet, and highlight how your particular knowledge and experiences set you apart from other candidates. Even while the job market remains challenging, it is still important to be prepared to negotiate effectively once offers have been made. Whether you are applying for a visiting assistant professor position or a tenure track faculty position at a college or university, there are many things that you may be able to negotiate once you have received a written offer.
This program is a session of the Faculty Conversations on the Academic Job Search and Academic Life, a series for doctoral students and postdocs which is co-sponsored by Career Services and the Vice Provost for Education. This year, 2014, is the 19th year of this series in which faculty and administrators share valuable information to help you best understand the academic job search process. While some are targeted to people in certain broad discipline areas, all PhD students and postdocs are welcome to attend.
