    Register for "Halfway There" PDW at AOM - Saturday, August 8th 12PM – 3PM


    If you are a PhD student who has finished your comprehensive exams (or has finished your 2nd year), we invite you to join us for the annual "Halfway There" PDW at AoM 2020. This PDW is designed to help mid-program PhD students begin establishing themselves as independent scholars. We hope you will consider registering for this session and spreading the word to your students and colleagues. Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 100 people, so if you are interested please register now using the link below.


    Overview of Presentations

    • Crafting a Research Project – Mo Wang, University of Florida
    • Understanding the "Job Market" Process and Preparing for it – Mike Baer, Arizona State University
    • Launching the Dissertation Process – Brent Scott, Michigan State University
    • Round Table Discussions with over 10 of Our Division's Newly Minted Assistant Professors and Post-Docs


    Round Table Discussions: During this session, attendees will be assigned to break-out rooms facilitated by newly-minted faculty and post-docs. The facilitators will help answer questions related to the earlier segments and provide insights about their own experiences writing a dissertation, developing a research program and navigating the job market.


    How do I register? The PDW will be held virtually on Saturday August 8th from 12PM to 3PM. There is no charge to attend, but interested students must register on-line by visiting our registration website: (http://okstatebusiness.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eJKhJgGDtuF0Jjn).


    Drop-in attendance at the PDW is not allowed. For more information, please contact Kate Zipay (kzipay@uoregon.edu).


    We hope to see you there!
