Request for additional materials:

  • From 20-21 c. American 2016: "According to today's email, 42 writing samples were requested. [posted 11/27]"
  • Could someone clarify a bit? Was this an email sent to those whose samples were requested? A general e-mail? A rejection? I have received nothing, but see now on Interfolio that my application is shown as missing a writing sample. Is this simply how all applications look now? [In the past I'm fairly sure I could add mats. after the fact only when I had received a request, not when I had been cut.] I'm confused!
  • The message was sent to those whose samples were requested, I believe.
  • Thanks--I figured that must be it. Does everyone's application show the writing sample slot now then? It must...Can I ask if there are many British people who got requests? I'm wondering whether it skewed American or British, given the ad didn't specify.
  • Mine also says "incomplete" now - says one writing sample is "required" despite the fact that the application didn't call for it. Didn't get a request via email for additional materials. Thoughts? 
  • The "incomplete" status means that Holy Cross has indeed made sample requests, notifying selected candidates via email. The rest of us haven't heard anything, but as far as Interfolio is concerned, our applications are now technically "incomplete." This doesn't mean, however, that our applications are still under consideration. I suppose you could still add a writing sample, but it wouldn't be looked at in all likelihood, because your name isn't on the list. If this isn't your first year on the market, by the way, you can look back over applications from previous years. For each job where you didn't advance to the second round, you're likely to find that your application is now "incomplete."
  • Okay I see -  thanks so much!

NOTES:

  • Also posted at Romanticism/Victorian/19th 2016
  • I'm confused by the application here. A bunch of documents are listed as optional, though some of them (letters) can't be attached, and some of them (research) the ad asks that you not send yet. Which leaves the syllabi & evals. But presumably they'd require these if they wanted them now? Maybe the optional slots are for later follow-up requests? 
  • I assume that we are not supposed to attach optional documents yet. But I am all ears if anyone can shed some light on the required "statement of experience with students in research or scholarship as it fits discipline." This is required in addition to the teaching philosophy statement.
  • This is the most fucking absurd application I've ever seen.
  • Agreed--I gave up.

NOTES:

  • From perusing the faculty directory, I think this one could be an inside hire - there's a VAP who is a Ph.D. student at U. Virginia and fits all of these criteria. The chair is also a U. Virginia Ph.D., so I'm guessing there's something up. Also, I am fairly certain that this VAP was not nationally advertised last year. Thoughts, world?
  • I have no insider information, but it's worth remembering that departments often hire VAPs as a stopgap measure when they actually need a TT position (admin only approves funding for the VAP for the time being). If eventually the money becomes available and the TT line materializes, I can tell you from experience that the VAP in situ is not always the candidate hired -- though there may be a faculty union requirement that they be interviewed. Sometimes the VAP is simply whoever was able to do the job that year, and not actually the department's ideal candidate. This seems especially true of ABD folks at small liberal arts colleges.
  • I had a similar thought regarding the VAP, but I'm sending something in anyway because, as the above commenter pointed out, it's not always easy to tell from the outside if something that looks like it may well be an inside hire actually is (unless it's extremely specific and obvious).
  • It seems a bit early to be sending out rejection notices, so something's afoot here.
  • I wouldn't rush to judgment about the internal candidate. Macalester is notorious for hiring an army of adjuncts across the disciplines, the great majority of whom see out a one- or two-year contract and simply move on. 
  • The rejection email sent 11/17 was by far the kindest-worded rejection email I've received. A model, should I ever face the task of writing them to other people!
  • I agree. This is my first time on an academic job hunt and I'm glad that my first rejection email was so nice. I'm guessing I probably won't see that again, though.
  • Seconded on how lovely this rejection was.  This is not my first rodeo, but it was the first time around this cycle, and it was refreshing to receive it.
  • I did not apply to this position, but I am very curious about the  "lovely," "kindest-worded" rejection notice  - any chance someone would be willing to include the message so we can see how it could be done?  
  • Yes it is good to receive some sort of acknowledgement, even a rejection letter. But in our job context, with the grotesque injustices of the academic job "market" in mind, no rejection is nice. Especially for those of us who are PT and have stayed in the game with good work experience and top publications. There is age discrimination in our discipline, let's admit it...
  • FYI here is the text of the letter I received--it is indeed "nice" though probably boilerplate:
Thank you for applying for the position in Twentieth and Twenty-First-Century British literature in Macalester's English Department. We appreciate that such applications represent a significant investment of time and thought.
I wish I were writing now with better news, but I am sorry to have to inform you that we won't be pursuing your candidacy any further. We received a substantial number, nearly 300, of applications from candidates with extraordinarily strong credentials, making our decision-making even more difficult than usual in this case.
We were fortunate to be able to consider a candidate of your caliber. We wish you the very best in your work and in your job search.
With gratitude for your interest, Daylanne K. English, Chair Department of English
  • I wrote a rec letter for a candidate with two books, currently teaching at a top SLAC. No interview. I'm interested to see who gets this post. 
  • Any more thoughts about whether this is an inside hire? MLA interviews were held...
