SSSP 2019 Annual Meeting
Date: Saturday, August 10
Time: 2:30 PM - 4:10 PM
Session 103: The Academic Job Market
Room: Broadway Suite
Sponsor: Program Committee
Presider: Héctor L. Delgado, University of La Verne
Description: This session is designed to provide participants with ideas on how to improve their chances of finding an academic position. Panelists with experience (some of it very recent) looking and hiring for positions will kick off the discussion, but ample opportunity will be given to participants to share their own experiences and ask questions.
The sooner in their graduate careers that individuals begin thinking about going on the market, the better it is, since there are things that they can do in graduate school to improve their prospects. So, this session is for Society members currently looking for a position, but also for anyone who plans to be on the market in the next three-four years -- and for anyone who feels that s/he has useful information to share with others about her/his own experiences.
