Prepare for the Academic Job Market: Secrets of an Excellent Job Talk

March 2, 2023 @ 10:30 AM - 11:50 AM

Whether you are interviewing for a position that focuses on teaching or research, you are likely going to be asked to give the “job talk,” where you share your research with the search committee and other attendees. But what are you really being asked to do when you give the job talk? If you don’t know the secrets of the job talk, you risk confusing or boring your audience during this crucial part of the extended interview (also called the “on-campus interview” when in-person). In this interactive workshop you’ll learn how to create a job talk that impresses the audience and communicates more than just your research. You will have an opportunity to begin planning for the job talk and be invited to work further on the job talk with an ITLAL consultant.

*NOTE: We will email you a link to the Zoom session on the morning of the workshop.
