CUAHSI-AGU H3S Beyond Grad School Cyberseminar Series: The post-application negotiations

Talk Description

The process doesn’t end once you land your ‘dream job’. There are negotiations to be made and papers to sign, and for many recent or soon-to-be graduates, this is foreign territory. You may even have multiple offers which can be difficult to manage. In this session, panelists will discuss their experience throughout the decision and negotiation process and provide tips-and-tricks that helped them succeed in the process.

CUAHSI-AGU H3S 2019 Fall Cyberseminar Series: Beyond Grad School: a Guide to Landing Your Dream Job

Hosted by CUAHSI and AGU H3S

Every Thursday in September, the AGU Hydrology Section Student Subcommittee (H3S) will be holding a joint cyberseminar with CUAHSI aimed to provide guidance for students and early career scientists who are or will soon be navigating the job application process. This series will be a four-part cyber-panel with weekly topics including: 1) the pre-application phase (i.e. when and how to start), 2) the application phase (i.e. materials and interviews), 3) the post-application negotiations, and 4) the job transition. Each panel will include members from academia, government, and industry positions and comprised of a discussion and Q&A session. If you have specific questions that you would like the panelists to answer, tweet us @AGU_H3S!
