This video presents an edited version of a panel discussion that took place at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle in August 1996. The panel, sponsored by the AMS Committee on the Profession, discussed how Ph.D. students in mathematics can prepare themselves for finding jobs once they finish their degrees. The panelists ranged from new Ph.D.s who had recently been on the job market to senior mathematicians in academia and industry. Among the topics discussed are how to start preparing for a job search while still a graduate student, specific job search strategies, tips on interviewing, and perspectives on what academic and industrial employers are looking for in a job applicant. The video ends with a look at the range of employment resources offered by the AMS.
