October 18, 2016 10:58 AM


We will be hosting our annual graduate writing seminar, sponsored by GSA and PROMISE AGEP! Our guest speakers will discuss writing topics for professional development. Susan Hindle, Assistant Director of Internships and Employment at the Career Center, will be talking about writing to acquire employment – personal statements, cover letters, resume. Susan will also likely touch on other resources available through the career center. Dr. Kevin Omland, Professor in the Biological Sciences Department, will discuss about writing for publications:  how to choose journals to submit to, how to evaluate those journals to curtail one’s own writing, how to improve one’s chances at finally acquiring publication. Please come to listen to seminars on writing for professional development! Refreshments will be served.
