Job Workshop

For the third annual year, the 2015 SHAFR Conference will feature a Job Search Workshop, designed to help our graduate students and recent Ph.D.s better navigate the challenging job market.

The 2015 Job Workshop will be held Saturday, June 27 from 8:00 to 9:15 AM in Salon 4/Ballroom at the conference venue. There will be two 30 minute sessions with a fifteen minute break in between. Each student or recent Ph.D. will be matched with two recently hired or senior scholars who will provide individualized feedback on their job materials. The Job Workshop is not a group session or mock interview.

Job Workshop participants are not required to be program presenters. Any registered conference attendee is welcome to participate.
