The academic Job Talk is arguably the single most important component of the academic interview, or “Campus Visit.”  It represents a critical, and public, sample of your program of research and your style of teaching, as well as your critical thinking, responsiveness to feedback and a whole range of non-specific variables, like your “accessibility,” “collegiality,” or “likeability.”  This webcast provides a detailed overview of a winning formula for giving an outstanding job talk, minimizing the anxiety and maximizing the impact associated with your presentation.  By participating in this webcast on the Job Talk, you will have the recipe for giving a GREAT ONE: Guaranteed!
