Getting The Job: Workshop & Panel Series

Critical preparation and practice to impress prospective employers

Are you preparing for a career in academia or a career that will value your teaching and mentoring abilities? Join Delta for this special event series dedicated to helping candidates stand out in a competitive job market.

The first three in-person workshops will focus on producing common application documents for jobs in academia. The last two events, which take place online in the same afternoon, will help you learn about what search committees value in applicants and give you an opportunity to practice responding to common interview questions.

We invite you to join us for all five events or pick and choose the events most relevant to your career goals.
