Participants will be required to read two preliminary articles on the academic recruiting process in advance of the workshop. Details will be provided prior to the date. Participants will also be asked to complete a preliminary questionnaire with three questions they have on the subjects covered in the workshop. The questionnaire should be submitted ten days prior to the workshop.
