PhD+ Workshop – Interviewing and Negotiating the Job Offer

November 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Virtual and In Person


Learn interviewing strategies to land the job offer. Then learn how to negotiate the best salary and benefits package when you receive the job offer. This class offers strategies that apply to both academic and alternative-to-academic job applications and negotiations. The negotiation strategies also apply to asking for raises, job reclassifications, and title and responsibilities changes.
