Job Search Transparency: Learning the Unwritten Rules to Land your Dream Job.

There are many unwritten rules in every field, and half of the battle is understanding these "rules." This workshop is focused on understanding these unwritten rules of the job process by obtaining advice from a diverse group of panelists. These panelists represent careers in different job sectors, all coming from different backgrounds for a genuine conversation about the job process. These panelists will talk about the different stages during a job search from the application process, to the interview, to the negotiation of a contract. The topics covered will include strategies to stand out as an applicant, dual career options, setup packages, space, and benefits as well as how to respond to inappropriate or illegal questions or other situations. The format of this workshop will start with an introduction of the panels and then be opened up to a discussion with questions from the attendees. The goal of this workshop is to help young professionals navigate and move forward from graduate school or postdoctoral positions on a positive career trajectory.
