Getting ready for the academic job market can be daunting. These workshops will review the different types of academic career paths, how to get started on each of them, and how to prepare for the application process, including CVs, cover letters, research and teaching statements, and interviews.
This seminar is part of a 1-credit course designed to provide academic professional development for graduate students from all three schools at UC Merced. Students are welcome to register for the course to receive credit for attendance and engagement in seminar exercises. Or, students may attend any of the seminars and workshops individually without registering, and benefit from the information and discussion. The two-part workshops are designed to be most beneficial when students attend both parts.
