Add to Calendar 9/20/2013 11:00 am 9/20/2013 America/Chicago Physics Careers Seminar: "Semiconductor Industry Job Hunting, In Retrospect" DESCRIPTION:

This is a very informal talk about one guy's effort to secure a job in the semiconductor industry. He did pull it off despite all the confusions and mistakes of a first time job seeker. After the dust settled and his job started, he couldn't help but to ask around to see how and why he ended up where he did. He hopes that the tidbits he found out can be helpful to other physics grad students thinking about a similar career path.

Bio: BA, Physics+Math, Grinnell College, 2004. PhD, Condensed matter physics, UIUC, 2012. Thesis advisor: Raffi Budakian. Currently failure analysis engineer at Intel Mobile Communications.
