    AOM HR Division Middle-Stage Doctoral Virtual Consortium: Call for participants


    Are you a doctoral student who is just finishing your second or third year? Are you a faculty member mentoring students who are about halfway through your program? If so, consider attending (or urging them to attend) the HR division middle-stage doctoral consortium. We are planning an exciting synchronous session on Wednesday August 4th, 2021 (start time TBD) that covers a variety of topics relevant for middle-stage doctoral students. 


    Goal & Content

    This workshop is geared toward HR doctoral students in the middle of their program and is aimed to help students navigate the collection of career issues that begin to emerge when students are about halfway through a doctoral program. Students are expected to begin the transition into independent scholars, start building professional networks, move beyond the structure of courses and exams, and develop skills as an instructor. The workshop topics are designed to help participants develop the knowledge and skills required to be successful at this middle-stage and continue their development into strong researchers and teachers.


    Through discussions led by leading HR scholars, students will reflect on the process and lessons of research, teaching, and life in academia, including:

    • Transitioning to teaching
    • Developing a scholarly profile
    • Career development and career choices 


    The workshop will also provide participants the opportunity to virtually interact with other PhD students, network with both senior and junior faculty, and stimulate an exchange of ideas and suggestions among participants.


    How do I register? There is no charge to attend, but pre-registration and conference registration are required. To pre-register, please email your name, school, year in the program, and your CV to Crystal Harold (charold@temple.edu) by Tuesday June 1, 2021. Participation will be limited to 40 attendees – so early registration is encouraged.


    Financial assistance is available. The AOM HR Division Executive Committee is able to provide financial assistance to help cover the registration fee for the AOM 2021 virtual conference. When you pre-register, please let us know if you are in need of such financial support.


    We hope to connect with many of you!
