This workshop prepares job candidates as they apply for academic and other positions. We will discuss and explain the job-search process and prepare and workshop the many documents and other job-search materials necessary for a search, from cvs to writing samples. We will also review job lists to find jobs for which students will apply, prepare for interviews and conduct mock interviews, and prepare for campus visits. When students have campus visits scheduled in winter and spring, we will reconvene for mock campus talks.
Taken during the final year of doctoral coursework, this workshop familiarizes students working on the journal article requirement with basic practices related to publication: revision/expansion of essays; rhetorical forms and structures of essays; selection of journals; submission to journals; revision and re-submission; and, on the journal side, how editors and reviewers read and respond to submitted drafts.
