Deconstructing Job Announcements

Office of Postdoctoral Studies - Career Planning Workshops

Event Details

Wednesday, March 21, 2018
12-2 p.m.
Initiating a job search in employment sectors other than in academia by applying cold to job postings is neither the only nor optimal way. Furthermore, the strategy of responding to job announcements works better for job seekers with certain skills in certain industries than in others. Since incorporating the strategy of applying cold could be a limited part of a comprehensive job search strategy, it pays to understand the process and do it right! Learn how to decide if the
approach is for you.
