  • Resume Remix

    Thu, Feb 13, 2020, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

    Putting together a resume as a grad student is tough. It can be hard to know how to present yourself, and maybe you're not even sure if you want to apply to non-academic jobs after grad school. 

    Stop by the Center for Career Development anytime during this casual session to learn how to put a resume together or update your old one. A Princeton alum working as senior director, higher education assessment at  Educational Testing Service, as well as career advisers will be available to provide you with personalized feedback on your resume, no matter what shape it is in.

  • Ph.D. Students: Talking about Your Teaching in an Academic Interview

    Thu, Dec 5, 2019, 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

    This workshop gives Ph.D students the chance to begin—or refine—their preparation to talk about teaching in an interview during a campus visit. 

    While most graduate students and postdoctoral fellows receive ample opportunity to present their doctoral research in forums such as departmental colloquia or national conferences, they rarely talk about teaching and pedagogy in such public settings. 

    As a result, they may lack the preparation for speaking about their teaching in compelling terms when it may count the most: the job interview.
