    1. 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

    2. RECRUITMENT TALK • What am I looking for in a trainee candidate • What am I looking for in a faculty candidate

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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

    6. 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

    7. RECRUITMENT TALK 3 PARTS Scientific Presentation One on one interviews Dinner

    8. 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

    9. 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

    10. 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.

    11. 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

    12. 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

    13. 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

    14. 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

    15. 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

    16. 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
