One panel will comprise senior faculty who will offer information from the perspective of deans, department chairs, and other administrative roles involved often involved in negotiations with job candidates. Another panel will comprise junior faculty members who will shed light on the negotiation process from the perspective of job candidates based on their recent experiences. Participants will then have the opportunity to practice negotiating and receive feedback and tips about how to improve.
