A round table luncheon entitled "Setting Your Course for the Current Job Market," organized by Louise Senior and Alicia Wise, is designed to link graduate students and recent Ph.D.s with professionals to discuss topics related to completion of their degrees and job hunting. Topics include interviewing, vita and resume crafting, preparing abstracts and presentations, publishing, grant writing, mentoring, recommendation letters, career options, and dissertating. Facilitators include D. Anderson, C. Crumley, M. Conkey, D. Dincauze, B. Doelle, C. Hastorf, D. Meltzer, N. Parezo, A. Pyburn, M. Schiffer, K. Vitelli, B. Wailes, and J. Yellen. This luncheon will be similar to that sponsored by COSWA, but will not conflict in time. Look for more information in your registration materials.
