  • March 9, 2009: Evaluating and Negotiating Job Offers: Demystifying the Process — Evaluating and negotiating job offers is arguably the most confusing and stressful — but exciting — part of the job search process. Scientists entering their first "real" jobs are often overwhelmed by the complexity of the compensation packages they are offered, both within and outside academe. This workshop is aimed to help demystify the process, let you know what to expect, and help you best position yourself to optimize your compensation. This workshop is suitable for women post docs and women graduate students at all stages of their careers, but is especially useful for those who are beginning, or in the midst of, their job searches. There will be ample opportunity for questions. Light refreshments will be served.
