HUGS 2021 Careers Workshop

This mini-workshop is part of the HUGS 2021 Summer School in nuclear physics.

Our goal is to offer graduate students a perspective on academic and non-academic careers, including two hands-on sessions with practical advice on resume and CV writing. To participate in the mock interview session, you however need to send an application package. We will provide details about the mock interviews and application package deadline soon!

For questions contact Arun, Astrid or Juan.

Mock Job Interviews

In order to participate in the mock job interviews, please apply to one of the mock jobs that will be advertised soon.

Application procedure

Applicants should send the application material mentioned in the job ad (typically a CV or resume, and a cover letter) in PDF format to the provided link on google drive or send the applications to Arun Tadepalli. Please indicate in the file name (ex. John_medical_physics) what position you are applying for.

Note that your submission may be reviewed and shared, in anonymous form, with other workshop participants and interviewers. Let us know in an e-mail if you would like your application to be viewed only by the interviewers and not your peers - but keep in mind that what you did well and what was not as effective in your submission materials will be instructive for all.

Deadline for Mock Job Applications: Friday, June 11th, 2021 at 5 pm EST.
