GSA's Signature Programs
CV Docs is an annual event sponsored by the Graduate Student Association. It affords graduate students the opportunity to have their CVs reviewed by a faculty member. Master’s-degree and PhD Candidates seeking either academic or private-sector jobs are eligible to participate with priority given to those students presently on the job market and those entering it in the coming year. CV Docs is offered at no cost, thanks to the generosity of our volunteer faculty members and post-doc fellows. Students that have registered for this event will submit their CVs at least a week prior to event for the selected faculty member for review. Watch our Facebook page or events page for the next session of CV Docs
The Writers' Room is a scholarly working group for graduate students and postdocs. Held in Ellis Library, this program includes short presentations by faculty writers and Ellis Library staff; a self-enroll Canvas Organization with DIY study materials; a dedicated writing space; optional debrief sessions where writers share their progress toward goals (and frustrations!) The presentations, called "15 Minute Modules" will be recorded live and stored in Canvas. By using Canvas, we have paved the way to include online grad students and those who need/prefer to work from home. See our events calendar for an upcoming session!
Professionalization Week (coming in 2017) will be a week-long event for graduate students pursing career within and beyond the academy.
