Two events are upcoming on the Berkeley Campus catered to finding jobs with advanced degrees. The first is the Masters/PhD Career Fair, which is September 27 from 12 pm until 4 pm in the MLK Jr. Student Union building in the Pauley Ballroom. The event already has 47 employers lined up and is designed specifically for advanced degree holders in a range of disciplines.
To prepare for that, the Career Center is offering Preparing for the Masters & PhD Career Fair and On-Campus Recruiting for Grad Students & PhDs, which is designed to help students get the most out of this chance to meet and talk with recruiters, scientists, and hiring managers. The Preparing seminar is Thursday, September 20, 2012 from 5: 00 PM to 6: 30 PM, Rm 212 Career Center (2111 Bancroft Way next to the big car wash). Questions such as how to transform your CV into a resume and what types of questions to ask if you are interested in a company will be addressed.
The Preparing workshop is free, but pre-registration is suggested. To reserve your slot, login to Callisto (https://berkeley-csm.symplicity.com/students/), click on the “Events” tab on the top menu, select “Career Center Programs and Workshops” and search for the Preparing workshop under “Graduate Student & PhD Programs.”

Every week, Piper will highlight an event or an organization on or near campus that is of interest to the Berkeley Science Review audience.
