The Office of Fellowship Training offers fellows the opportunity to practice their "job talk" to a faculty audience and receive critiques from those faculty. Fellows who have taken advantage of this opportunity in the past have found it to be very useful in preparing for upcoming job searches.
Fellows present their job talk to 2-3 faculty members and an audience of their peers. Afterwards, the faculty critique the presentation, acknowledging positive aspects and suggesting areas that might benefit from changes.
To initiate the scheduling of your presentation, please email the OFT including:
