> Beyond the Classroom: Women'??s Grad School Survival Hour
> This brown bag community is designed to look at some of the issues 
> that women face during their graduate careers and offer some insight 
> into navigating these issues and obstacles. If you are interested in 
> becoming part of this brown bag community, please contact Marisa 
> Allison at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> or Zayna Bizri 
> at [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>.  For 
> the Fall 2011 semester we have three meetings scheduled:
> *Curriculum Vitae Swap*: Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 12:30 p.m., New 
> Graduate Student Space, Alcove JC 3rd Floor
> Bring a few copies of your CV to distribute with other graduate 
> students to get some guidance and share your ideas and tips youâ??ve 
> heard of just how to compile this mysterious document. Whether it'??s 
> barely 1 page or if it'??s 20 pages long, we'??ll gather informally to 
> offer advice to one another.  
> *Teaching Packet Workshop*: Tuesday, November 15, 2011  12:30 p.m.
> Josh Eyler, Associate Director at Mason'??s Center for Teaching 
> Excellence, will join us to give some guidance on how to compile a 
> teaching packet in preparation for the job market. Though this 
> workshop will be directed toward Ph.D. students advancing towards jobs 
> in the academy, it will also provide tips for Master'??s Students who 
> plan to eventually teach at the university level.
> *Preparing for a Job Talk*: Tuesday, December 6th, 2011  12:30 p.m.
> Know what to expect when you go on a job talk. Will they ask you to 
> teach a class? How long will they give you to present your 
> dissertation research? What can or can'??t they ask you? A panel of 
> Mason faculty will discuss their job talk experiences and share some 
> guidance on this process.
