Current Graduate Students

Students planning to pursue a career should establish a dossier at the Placement and Career Planning Center, where advisers are available for consultation (PCPC Building, 825-2981). In addition, the Department organizes meetings to discuss all aspects of the job search in academia, including preparing the curriculum vitae, MLA interviews, and on-campus interviews. Practice interviews are also organized as part of the Department's overall effort to assist its students in their career planning.
