Job Market Informational Meeting

Greetings to those who are thinking of hitting the job market this year. I'm writing to let you know that Mary Ann Samyn and I will host an information session on the application process.

We will meet on Friday, September 18 at 4:00 in Colson 106. This will be our only formal meeting about the job market, featuring a veritable feast of information, inspiring stories, and opportunities to ask questions. After that, we will meet with you individually to comment on your application materials and to help you through the mysteries of the process. Please, though, come to this meeting so that later we can build on what we said and not introduce you to
what we said at the meeting.

In the meantime, you should check out the department's website for the academic job search--which you can find at

By the time of the meeting, you should have drafts of your letter and cv, at the very least. By now, you should have talked with the faculty on your committee about letters of recommendation, and you should have provided them with all the information they need to write a strong letter.
