What's the worst question you could ever ask a graduate student?
When will you be finished? Rolls eyes.
For so long, there was no end in sight, but now, you are graduating either this spring or this summer.
And there is still so much left to do...including completing and successfully defending your dissertation.
And I know you will get it all done and become Dr. [INSERT LAST NAME HERE].
So, today I want you to think about the next step!
You know the one after grad school is done and you are thrust into the real world to start a career and life of your own.
Well, it's happening soon and you need to start applying now!
But how? Grad school prepares you for the job, not to apply for the job!
You've been so laser focused on your field and area of expertise. But now you have to write CVs, Cover Letters, Teaching Statements, and Research Statements, oh my!
There are so many moving parts (documents) to keep track of!
So how do you start applying for jobs when you are in the middle of a busy semester?
You take the Job Application Crash Course. In the JACC, I walk you through the whole messy process of choosing what types of jobs to apply for, writing all of those documents I mentioned, and submitting a complete application.
Don't worry, I won't just tell you how to create your application materials and send you on your way. I'll give you examples and templates from my own job application process.
You know, the one where I got 4 on campus interviews in 6 weeks and accepted my dream job before December!
If that sounds like it could help you, enroll in the Job Application Crash Course where you can complete your job application packet and still have time to teach your classes, write your dissertation, and fulfill all of your grad school responsibilities.
