Kicking Off Conferences with FORUM/Diversity 2017

Interconnected tree roots with

You’ve been polishing your resume and personal statement, practicing how to perfect the 30-minute interview, and picking out your best conference attire in anticipation of conference season…and the time is finally here! We kick off our 2017 hiring conferences with FORUM/Diversity tomorrow! Here is a quick rundown of a few things to remember and reminders about the schedule for the day.

1. Make sure you’re logging into the conference module often! Bring a laptop or tablet to the conference, as schools could still be scheduling interviews the day of the event.

2. Talk with your Placement Team during any downtime you might have. We love meeting candidates in person and a quick conversation about how your day, and your job search in general, is going can be a great use of time in between interviews.

3. Take advantage of the professional development panels. Check out the schedule here; if there are one or two panels you’re extremely interested in, mark off the panel time as “Unavailable” on your schedule in the conference module so schools don’t schedule interviews during that time.

4. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m., Dr. Cornel West’s keynote address starts at 8:00 a.m., and interviews and panel presentations start at 10:00 a.m. The day finishes up at 5:00 p.m.

We’ll see you at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia tomorrow!
