Applications for faculty positions typically ask for a number of documents and statements beyond a CV and cover letter, and it is to your advantage to write individual documents and to create a total package that stands out from your fellow applicants. Join us to learn how to create an application package that highlights your unique skills and experiences, and how to address potential weaknesses. Whether you are in the midst of an active job search or planning for the future, this is a great opportunity to learn more about finding your next faculty position!
