"How to Get a Job in Philosophy"
This is a reminder about the first workshop which will take place Thu at 11:45 in the seminar room. All first and second year students as well as job market candidates are required to attend. That said, the seminar should be of interest to all students considering going on the market in the next year or two (and those who just want to know what to look forward to) as it focuses on things you can do to secure a good job in philosophy.
