Abstract: 

Graduate Committee invites all Mathematics graduate students, faculty, and staff to participate in the Mathematics Professional Development event planned for Wednesday February 17, at 5:00-7:00pm in MLC. The event will include short presentations on professional materials required when applying for various mathematics careers (teaching in colleges, research/teaching positions, industry, labs, and other). Break-out sessions with faculty and alumni volunteers who have experience relevant to these careers and can provide constructive comments are also planned. Refreshments will be served. Stop procrastinating and come to get input on your CV, teaching statements, research statements, before the job application deadlines kick in!

We will also discuss pro-active strategies that can help students develop their skills and improve their standing on the job market. In other words, for those who are not graduating soon, we will discuss "what you can do to improve your professional preparation" by participating in conferences, summer schools, professional programs, and how to find summer employment.

Registration by 2/15 5:00pm is required. If you intend to participate, please go to http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_diCrAbyOmc5rTBr
