Job Search Series

The Graduate School, the Career Connections Center, and the Center for Stress Resilient Agriculture’s ExcelAGator program will host a Fall 2020 seminar series on entering the job market.

Designed for late-stage graduate students and postdocs, the series will focus primarily on non-academic careers, although some information will apply to academic job searches as well.

Topics include:

  • Elevator Pitch
  • Networking and Building Connections
  • The Non-Academic Job Search
  • Curriculum Vitae/Résumé/Cover Letter
  • Interviewing Skills
  • Negotiating and Professional Skills

Seminar sessions run from 3 p.m. through 4:30 p.m. on all Mondays between October 12 and November 16 via Zoom. Participants are expected to attend all sessions. Those who successfully complete the series will receive a certificate of completion.

Limited seats are available. The application process opens September 15. Applicants will be admitted on a rolling basis, so apply early to guarantee a spot.
