Known as the campus 'living room,' thousands of people visit the University Memorial Center (UMC) every day to grab a bite to eat, enjoy free entertainment, shop the retail stores, study with free wireless Internet or just hang out. With a wide variety of student services and student group offices in the building and active student governance, the UMC is an exciting center for activism and community interaction.

This talk could have been an hour instead of 90 minutes, and it was a bit too directed toward scholars in STEM (i.e., the focus on funding for lab assistants/equipment). Some of the advice given here would be fatal for humanities students.

Useful but probably would have been better with less backstory from the presenter and a few more minutes for questions

I wanted to hear more specific advise on how to prepare application materials, since I will be applying for positions this Fall. Unfortunately, the info provided was a little basic and not deep enough in my opinion to be helpful. I think it will also be more helpful to have separate sessions for applying for tenure track jobs and getting tenure.

Friendly presenter with an interesting personal story. However I find his advice extremely general and didn't get much out of the talk I didn't already know going in. In fairness I had attended similar talks at 2018 bps conference so I probably has my hopes too high.

This was a nice combo of anecdotal evidence of what this journey could look like and important information and topics that I hadn't thought about when thinking about tenure-track positions.

Prof. Gooseff spent considerably more time discussing his own career trajectory and personal anecdotes than he did giving actionable advice about applying for tenure-track faculty positions. The session was not a good use of my time. The food was great however.
