We'll discuss what kinds of jobs are available to an upcoming PhD and how you get them. We'll also cover successful tips and tricks that can help you survive a grueling interview schedule. From questions you should be prepared to answer to PowerPoint tricks you can't live without, this is your chance to get the inside scoop. Even if you're not graduating this year, you might still want to attend so you can learn how to *really* watch a job talk and start preparing early for your global conquest.
