writing; the job search; job letters; writing samples; research and  
teaching portfolios; dissertation abstracts, and recommendation  
letters.  We will encourage questions about all aspects of the dossier  
and job search.

have materials that you would like to workshop, or particular concerns  
you wish addressed, please contact Cary Cordova at

MORE TO COME: This event is the first in a series of workshops to be  
held over the course of this academic year.  Subsequent workshops will  
discuss fellowships and grants, conferencing, publishing, and more.   
Each workshop will feature AMS faculty and affiliates discussing their  
personal and professional experience and strategies. We look forward  
to seeing you at this inaugural event.
