Scott StephanThe PFF workshops were instrumental to the success of my job search. Every angle of the search process received full coverage—cover letters and vitas, interviewing (conference and campus), and job talks (research and teaching). Most importantly, a strong sense of community developed among the job seekers, creating an open environment for trying out job search tactics and sharing interview experiences. There is no substitute for the knowledge and skills gained through the workshops. I only wish that I had participated in the workshops a year prior to going on the academic market.
