Conducting an Academic Job Search with Clarity, Positivity, and Resilience

Embarking on the academic job market is no small undertaking; your livelihood and your identity are on the line. And with all the negative messages about the current state of the academic job market from mentors, peers, and media fear mongers, you worry that your dream job may not come your way. Rather than seeing the job search as an adventure and an opportunity, you feel lost at sea.

Before you get started with your academic job search, join Caroline Eisner’s webinar for techniques on how to manage the uncertainty of an academic job search in ways that increase your clarity, positivity, and resilience.

During this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Understand why job searching triggers fears and uncertainties;
  • Create a positive framework and mindset for your job search;
  • Use the job search to articulate your brand and put your best self forward;
  • Clarify what you want to achieve with this job search, and how it fits into your career and life goals;
  • Assess job openings against your criteria; and
  • Cultivate resilience to sustain yourself during the job search process.

  • 1 p.m. Pacific time
