This hands-on career workshop aimed at early career scholars will take participants through the nuts and bolts of several key aspects of the academic job application process: searching for positions and writing the CV and cover letter. We will discuss several cutting-edge strategies for looking for academic jobs, and then show you how to craft your CV and cover letter so that they stand out and get noticed. We will also discuss how to efficiently communicate the most marketable aspects of your academic self. This event is designed specifically for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and others interested in pursuing academic careers in the social sciences and humanities. It will be led by a team of multi-disciplinary senior scholars from several universities.
