Symposium Beyond Apprenticeship: Navigating the Stages of Academia
Presentation Title A Field Guide for Becoming an Assistant Professor
Author(s) Victoria M. Miller
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Victoria M. Miller
Abstract Scope The first major hurdle in an academic career is often simply getting the job. It is common for a single job opening to get hundreds of applications---how do you ensure that your packet gets a thorough look? How do you stand out in the interview process? This talk demystifies the job search process, covering all the stages from deciding when to start applying all the way to negotiating a startup offer. It will combine anecdotes, conventional wisdom, and some not-so-conventional wisdom into a practical field guide for the academic job market.
