RECRUITMENT TALK

Remember

There are few positions and many candidates

200-500 candidates for any tenure track faculty position

10 qualified people for each position

I receive 30-50 unsolicited requests per month

Step 1: Getting the Interview

CV and personal statement

Review standard University CV formats

I do not care what you think your skills are

I want to know what you have produced

I want to know what your training is

I will respond better to what I am used to seeing

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • What am I looking for in a trainee candidate
  • What am I looking for in a faculty candidate
slide3

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • You only get one chance to make a first impression
    • Arrive early
    • Dress Professionally
      • Males Tie and Jacket
      • Females Consider a suit
        • At least a dress or skirt.
      • Live with your clothes. Do not fidget
      • I am looking for a professional colleague
    • Slides must be clear, single format
slide4

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • What am I looking for in a trainee candidate
    • Career goals
      • What do you want to do in 5 years
      • How will you get there:
      • What are your strengths and weaknesses
      • Are you driven to succeed
    • Talk
      • Organization
      • Thought process
      • Much more important than the data
      • Handling questions more important than the talk
        • NEVER EVER INTERRUPT
    • I am making a commitment to your career
      • Will you be successful
      • Are you teachable
      • Do you want to learn or do you already know it all
slide5

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • What am I looking for in a Faculty Candidate
    • Someone I trust
      • Represent me in meetings
      • Not cause problems in and for the department
      • A team player and collaborator: Team sports
      • There is no “I” in a talk
    • Someone I want to work with, go to dinner with, go to meetings with
    • Someone who will make me better or my life easier
      • Will they teach classes well
    • Will they get grants
    • Are they going to be a good teacher
    • Are they intellectually curious; Will they listen to my questions. Will they review my grant and help me
    • Have they asked their supervisor about the project and what they can take with them
slide6

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • There are many candidates.
  • Recruitment is occasional.
  • For students, we are looking at being
    • together for 4-6 years, PDFs 3-4 years, faculty a lifetime.
  • Divorce (termination) is painful
  • Estimated cost of a “wrong” faculty rectruitment: 750K
  • There are many ways to make a mistake, few to make a good first impression
  • Better to recruit no one than the wrong one

RECRUITMENT TALK

3 PARTS

Scientific Presentation

One on one interviews

Dinner

RECRUITMENT TALK

PREPARATION FOR THE TRIP

Its not all about the talk

DO YOUR HOMEWORK.

Institution

If you are going to Duke, know about the basketball team

If you are going to UT, know about the football team

Texas A and M, know what an Aggie is.

People

Study your agenda

Know who you are meeting.

Review online.

What is their latest paper. Know their history

Many people have websites or lab websites

IL2, LAKs and TILs

Know who you are going to dinner with

recruitment talk9

RECRUITMENT TALK

TALK

Prepare practice and give it to as many people who will listen

Have people look at slides

Spelling errors, too busy

Use SpellCheck

PDF presentation is safest approach

Do not tell jokes or try to be funny.

You can have an amusing slide

NO motion slides unless absolutely necessary

If possible overlay slides if motion needed

recruitment talk10

RECRUITMENT TALK

THE TALK

Expect to be nervous

Where to stand

Your slides can be crutches.

Do not read your slides but they are there if you need them

Speak slowly and clearly

If you get lost, do not panic. Take a deep breath and start again.

Make clear transitions. A few second gap is OK.

Tell one or maybe two stories well, not many.

Do not assume anyone has read your favorite papers including your own.

slide11

RECRUITMENT TALK

THE TALK

  • Every slide should have a message and a reason to be in the talk
  • Tell a story. The talk should have a beginning middle and end.
    • Place the topic in context
      • Big picture
    • Logic flow: A set of slides showing what you will present: Fade in an out.
    • Results
    • Conclusion
    • Appropriate amount of time
      • 45 minutes
slide12

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • THE TALK
    • Are you logical
    • Are you careful
    • Acknowledge anyone who did the work on the slide
    • Introduction
      • Put the topic in context
        • Enough background so people understand the question
        • What is the question
        • Why is this important
slide13

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • The four slide cassette

Introduction slide

Set the question

Present a model describing the question

A picture is worth a thousand words!

Method slide

What was done and why

Explain the approach and why

Data slide

Make a new slide for the talk with key points only

NOT from your paper

Controls are critical

Are you careful.

Conclusion/transition slide

What does the data show you

Go back to your model

Present a revised model slide

What is the next question

Set the next cassette

slide14

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • THE END
  • What have you learned
  • What are the next questions
  • One and maybe two slides
    • What would the title of your grant application be
    • What is the model
    • What are the aims
slide15

RECRUITMENT TALK

  • THE DREADED DINNER
    • Do not drink AT ALL
      • It is too easy to sip too many times.
      • If they order you a drink or a glass of wine pick it up put it to your lips occasionally and do not drink
    • Think about what you order
      • Order a salad
      • Main course should be easy to eat
      • Skip desert
      • Only order coffee after others
      • DO NOT order spaghetti.
    • Do not discuss politics or religion unless asked and then say little and try to change the topic
    • Nobody cares about how they do things at home
    • You must participate
    • People like to talk about themselves
      • Where are they from. How did they get to the institution. Why did they come
    • Try to sit next to someone you know or the recruit leader
    • The Dinner is not a time to ask contentious questions
the offer
THE OFFER
  • Review carefully
  • Ask questions but not too many
    • No one wants to work with someone who is a pain
  • Your best chance to negotiate is up front
    • No one wants to work with someone who is not excited about the job. Too much negotiation will lose the job
  • Produce and renegotiate
  • Produce and move elsewhere
