An annual placement orientation takes place at the end of the Spring semester. During the Summer, the Graduate School Student Senate organizes workshops on formulating the teaching statement. In September, everyone on the market workshops their dossiers. In October, the letters of reference are gathered, vetted for typos and inconsistencies, and organized. In November and December, there are practice job talks and mock interviews.
The Director of Graduate Studies serves as the department's chief placement officer, but the whole department coordinates to support those seeking academic jobs.
We also help those seeking non-academic jobs. The best resources are in WUSTL's Career Center.
