The goals of this course this Fall semester will be to get you ready for the job market, or a PhD program, based on your career and educational goals. You will be working on various aspects of your job or program materials, and searching for potential positions/programs. You will complete weekly challenges that help you to build your materials, and you will get feedback from your peers, as well as your instructor and representatives of the Academic and Career Advising Center. If you complete all of the challenges, you will leave the course with an online networking profile, including a professional headshot, and a portfolio of your work. You can and should access the Academic and Career Advising Center above and beyond what we are doing in class.
