The application phase (i.e. materials and interviews)

Talk Description

There is so much that goes into a job application, from the application materials (CV/resume, cover letter, etc.) to interviews (both phone and in-person). This session will cover each step of the application process. Panelists will share their experiences writing application documents and conducting interviews with the hope of sharing expected and unexpected aspects of the process. Panelists that have served on search committees will also provide students and early career scientists with feedback from the employer’s perspective.
