Meg Krawchuk, Geography Faculty member and Champion-Contract-Negotiator (in-training) coming to the Academic Career Panel

March 03, 2014

The interview,  the teaching dossier, the job talk...academic hiring processes require a lot of work for prospectives candidates. And unfortunately, according to Meg  Krawchuk, Assistant Professor in SFU’s Geography Department, the worst part doesn't come to the very end.

Meg explains that when it came to negotiating her SFU contract, she was very hesitant, "It was hard to vocalize what I wanted. I had a lot of trepidation wondering, ‘is this going to be the end of it?” Aftr putting in so much she was concerned that any demand would jeopardize her offer.

It didn't, and Meg did manage to modify her offer in certain ways, though she confesses that “even now I wonder if I could have done better.”

Find out what areas Meg was able to impact, what areas she wasn’t, and what she would have done differently so that she wasn’t still ‘what if’ ing at the upcoming Academic Career Panel. 

This panel will also include faculty from UBC, Camous College, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and Thompson Rivers University Open Learning. For a complete list of presenter bios please see this post
