Event Description:

Dissertations are group efforts. It may be your name on the final signature page, but nobody does it alone. Your team of advisors, mentors, comrades, partners, colleagues, tech support workers, therapists, and food delivery folks is vital to the process. So how to find the right advisors for your grad school experience and your dissertation? And how to work with them well once you do?

In this exclusive Rockstar Program webinar, Ideas on Fire President Dr. Cathy Hannabach will share concrete strategies for finding the right advisors and working well with them over time. We’ll talk about identifying the specific things you need and want from advisors, finding matches for your unique work and communication styles, what you are and are not responsible for in the advisor/advisee relationship, troubleshooting sticky advising situations, and how to ensure reciprocal and supportive advisor relationships.

Note: This webinar is open to Grad School Rockstar Program or Dissertation Rockstar Bootcamp participants. If you’re not already enrolled, you can do so here and here.
