  1. Start working on your CV, cover letter(s), teaching statement, and research description. For help and guidelines you can see Thomas Rishel's article, refer to The C.V. Doctor column in The Chronicle of Higher Education, and read Tips on Preparing a Vita from the Math Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
  2. Plan to attend the Joint Mathematics Meeting in January.
  3. Present a paper at the Joint Mathematics Meeting.  The deadlines for submitting an abstract in order to present a paper at this meeting are in August or September. You can find them at the meeting site under deadlines. (This link becomes available only in July or August before the meeting.)  The AMS web site also has guidelines for writing an abstract, as well as other information about giving talks.  If you miss these deadlines you still have a chance to apply to present a poster (see Late November/Early December).
  4. For women, the Association of Women in Mathematics (AWM) offers Workshops for Women Graduate Students and Recent Ph.D.'s, in which selected participants (membership not required) present either a 20-minute talk or a poster on their research.  The deadline is September 1, and it is very competitive.
