A difficult decision faces graduate students upon program completion: What to do with that Ph.D? Many graduates choose to move into faculty positions within the wild world of academia. All in their first or second year as faculty, panelists will discuss their personal accounts of graduate school, the application and interviewing process, and the transition from graduate school into the professional community. Based on their own experiences, panelists will provide recommendations and advice for graduate students seeking to obtain positions in academia. Time will be allotted for members of the audience to direct specific questions to panelists. Hearing from panelists who attended three different behavior analysis programs as graduate students and are now teaching behavior analysis as faculty at three different institutions should be helpful to students who are deciding what to do after graduation.
