Timeline for an Academic Job Search
January to Spring
- Keep applying for jobs from The Chronicle and the MLA Job Information List. The Chronicle updates its listings weekly. New issues of the MLA Job Information List come out in December, February, and April. Temporary positions are often advertised late.
- Prepare for on-campus interviews, presentations, and visits.
- Keep the Academic Placement Advisors and the Coordinator of Graduate Studies apprised of your progress through the rigors of the job search, and by all means let them know about its eventual results.
