What makes a candidate competitive for a history job?

Tuesday, April 26, 1:00-2:00pm 

Nau 342

Our very own James Ambuske, Prof Andrew Kahrl, and Prof Elizabeth Varon will speak from recent recent experiences of being on the job market or serving on search committees. Possible questions: what makes a candidate stand out? what are the red flags that stand out to committees in the first round  of shortlisting from hundreds of applications? what makes a competitive graduate school record? how to prioritize time in graduate school between conferences, grants, dissertation writing, service etc? tips on job application materials? 

As always, here’s the best part: FREE LUNCH IS PROVIDED!

All we ask is that you RSVP to http://tinyurl.com/hvmm7qx so we can order enough food.
