Whether you have chosen to pursue a PhD to gain an academic, research, or alternative position, at the end of the journey, you will be "on the market". When it comes to interviewing, there is no such thing as too much advice when it comes to tips, tricks, and how-tos.
Here are just a few of our favorite resources. Part 1 is on conference attendance, while part 2 focuses on the job market more explicitly!
Part 1. Conference Etiquette.
- Get business cards with your name on them (and remember to bring them with you)
- Review the conference schedule and attendance list. Send emails for coffee dates to faculty and professionals you would like to meet and talk with while there (be bold!)
- When you do meet with someone, write a reminder to yourself about what you talked about, a unique identifier, so when you get home you can recall the conversation
- Remember to send thank you emails
Part 2. The Post-PhD Job Hunt.
