Chemical Engineering Education, v49 n1 p29-36 Win 2015
Many new Ph.D.s are not prepared for a competitive interview process in seeking a first job. The University of Washington (UW) designed the Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar (DYSS) to rectify this problem with three goals: simulate a visit associated with many interviews and a one-hour seminar; make UW graduate students aware of where they fit into the job-seekers landscape, and expose UW graduate students to peer evaluation decision making processes that governs funding decisions.
