Campus Interviews Edit

List NEW information at top - please post "Have you heard?" questions below, under Word on the Steet

  • Susquehanna University [posted ~11/10]
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (11/6) Q: How could there be a campus interview already? A: The last few years, people have put the date contacted next to the information or noted it being second hand. That doesn't seem to be consistent this year, but the deadline was 10.16.17. So, they could have moved fast with initial interviews and just extened an invitation to campus. Likely the visit is in the coming weeks. Last year some schools moved fast to avoid MLA and to try and get their top picks.

Word on the street Edit

List NEW information at top.

  • Please share total interviews up until today (11/18): A:A2: Patience. Though it feels like an eternity to us once we have submitted, to committees, it is very difficult to meet and select ~10-12 interviewees from a pile of hundreds of applications. It can take weeks to reach an agreement, let alone get HR to OK the candidates (then think the technology needs). Don't expect that schools with deadlines last week will have answers prior to the holiday. It's possible, but try to focus on your work and not on counting the days. That's the only way to keep sane! 
  • Middlebury. Any news? 
  • Brown - Has anyone heard anything yet?
  • Temple. Any news?  A: Nope (11/19)
  • University of Nevada - Reno: Has anyone heard anything yet?
  • Stanford: Any news? (11/16) A: On the 10th, someone posted under the Skype interviews that they had heard.
  • Notre Dame: Has anyone heard from Notre Dame? (11/16)
  • Nope. I applied a month before the deadline, too. I wouldn't read too much into it. They're taking their time (as the R1s tend to do)
  • Furman. Has anyone heard from Furman? (11/15)
  • Emory. Anything on Emory University?
  • Santa Clara. Any news on the Santa Clara Spanish Studies position?  I have not heard anything, but logged on to the system to see the status of my application marked "No longer under consideration". Has anyone received a call for interview or rejection? A: My profile said the same. But never received a rejection email. A2: My profile still says "in progress". I have not received any e-mail from them, though. So, I don't know if I am still under consideration or not. A: I was just contacted about my documents. They are finalizing information to likely invite candidates for skype interviews soon. 
  • SUNY Fredonia. has an insider for the LatAm lit/history job. Good for him, he has plenty of experience in exactly what they asked for and he's been there for a year, but that announcement literally cites from his CV. Doesn't anyone realize that with the internet these days the patterns of inside hires are blatantly apparent to the whole world? A. It happens more ofthen than one can think despite the denial of many job applicants. 
  • Georgia College is likely an inside higher. Their job description fits nicely with a PhD Spanish lecturer they have. It looks like they are doing interviews, but it might be to save face and do their “due diligence”. [edited to remove name-- I believe we are keeping names off public forums]
  • Uof Chicago. Suspicious: Does anybody know if the U. of Chicago job is for real? They have a postdoc right now who  does pretty much exactly what they are requesting in their job description. What's the word on the street?
  • A: I think you answered your own question. Also interesting that the deadline is so early - the day before the MLA list comes out (when most people start looking). Alas, that is how these things sometimes go, and jobs are so hard to come by that it is hard to begrudge any postdoc the possibility of their position turning into a job, though Chicago certainly could have been a little more discreet in their designs. Also good to keep in mind that things sometimes don't shake out as planned - departmental politics and other factors can intervene, so who knows what will happen. 
  • A:  I absolutely agree with you. It is not really about begrudging the postdoc. But targeted searches prevent applicants from getting their hopes up and from going through the whole application process. Very strange indeed!
  • A: I cannot speak for U. of Chicago, but I've been in a U that has had to conduct searches ahead of the regular calendar due to limited personnel available to conduct the search during the fall semester.  Job postings appear in Inside Higher Ed and Chronicle year round, and the MLA should seriously consider doing the same, or else post only searches conducted through their own conference.
  • A: I agree with another comment on here about not obsessing over the inside candidate question. It is enough to drive us all to extremes and insanity. I have seen lots of cases of lines being created for Vaps and visiting, which is a distinct situation, but is great for them. In searches, there is a chance someone else is chosen, which has got to be hard to go through as an “internal” person. I did hear, though, U Chicago is meant for the postdoc. Second hand, but very reliable.

Free advice (especially for colleagues new to the market)Edit

List NEW information at top.

  • How to interpret an open rank search? I am new on the market, and have read that many times departments are primarily looking for a full professor, while keeping a door open for assistant professors in case they cannot reach an agreement on a candidate. Also heard associate professors flock to these openings for the tenure, making it unlikely they'll get someone with less experience. What do you guys think? A1: Go for it. The scenario you describe happened at my R1 last year. Negotiations fell thru with the preferred associate profs and they hired a (wonderful) ABD.
  • Inside Candidate Anxiety. Having read the wiki for many years (both as a candidate and as a committee member), I urge y'all not to buy into the "inside candidate" anxiety. Not only is it perhaps the most unhealthy aspect of this particular forum, but it's usually totally, absolutely unfounded. Committees will hire lecturers and VAPs, of course, but it's the exception, not the rule. Please focus on your own materials. [If you're a masochist and want to channel your nervous energy into this topic, just review previous years' wikis. The insider is almost always beat out by the outsider.]
  • A: I have seen both things happen. I know there are fake searches. I was the subject of one. Sadly, it is a reality. I have seen (this happened to me) a Dean saying, "nope, we need a candidate who represents this and that at this juncture" and then the assured job of a "fake search" goes to someone else based on institutional needs. So all sorts of unexpected things can happen, even within a "fake search." With regards to the U of Chicago's job, several second hand knowledges attest to it being for the postdoc and that is great for her! But as you point out, it all shall be revealed at the end.
  • A2: Having been on the market and on searches, I wonder if the obsession with the inside candidates is a way to feel some measure of control in an uncontrollable situation. I know insiders who won, who didn't even get interviewed, who never applied to begin with. Being the inside candidate is hugely nervewracking because it involves an entire year of constant performance, trying not to say the wrong thing, offend the wrong person, attend the wrong event. It's a double-edged sword. Even if a profile looks perfect for a job, the materials presented could be weak, and a search committee may have hired that person late to fill a needed vacancy with no interest in a long-term hire. And, again, the inside hire may not at all want the job having done it for a year! 
  • A3: anyone who doubts whether inside candidacies exist may revisit the 2017 thread and read the USC job description, then look who got hired. In my opinion, this is the most honorable way to go about a target hire, and USC should be praised for going through the required motions while making it totally clear they never intended to hire anyone else so long as the insider accepted (an important caveat). The dishonorable method of issuing a vague or general job description that will attract hundreds of applicants, and then conducting a disingenuous search also occurs: I was flatly told in the car on the way to the airport after a campus visit a few years ago that the deparatment was giving the job to the only candidate who had not yet visited. The other four of us were wasting our time by visiting for two days, and traveling for another two days to reach the somewhat remote campus; my ride to the airport was the only person who performed the courtesy of letting me know I shouldn't expect anything. It was hugely appreciated. I later learned that although I was required to submit my dissertation for examination before an invitation could be issued, on the grounds that the university was unwiling to approve ABD hires, the candidate who accepted the job was a fifth-year ABD with less than two chapters written at acceptance. Make of all this what you will. I still apply for jobs I want, but manage expectations accordingly.
  • A4 to A3. I totally agree. Inside candidates and fake searches happen more often and one can think. It happened to me several times last year. 
  • Quaker College. I know the job market is not great (it has not been for a while), however, try to stay away from that Quaker college in Eastern Indiana. They have a very toxic work environment. While they advertise their teaching load as "3 classses per semester" you as the new person will most likely have to teach their 3 sections of SPAN101 in the spring and 2 or 3 sections of SPAN102 in the spring with basically no option of teaching upper level classes. Each section is 5 credits, so you will most likely teach 13 -15 credits for semester. Also, that area of Indiana is miserable (extremely conservative), it's basically a meth town. Also, while they do hire people who are not quaker, the truth is that the institution is very "cultish" and the people who make decisions are quaker. They have had a lot of problems with junior faculty retention. Even people in tenure-track positions have left. Just some free advice, take or leave it. 
  • Inside Candidates.  About inside candidates: just because someone in the department fits the profile perfectly it does not mean they created the position for that person. It could very well be that they hired the person (postdoc, visiting, lecturer) to temporarily fill a real departmental need but intend to do a "real" search. I saw this happen at my institution--a visiting faculty fit the job description perfectly on paper but the department was actually looking to replace her. In the meantime, several commenters here were convinced there was an inside candidate. I am not saying it doesn't happen, just that it's not always a given. Good luck!
  • Interfolio Deliveries Malfunction. Make sure to double check your interfolio deliveries. I submitted a few applications a couple weeks back and they were marked as submitted. Upon checking this week, I noticed that two deliveries were, in fact, marked as incomplete. It was an easy fix, but I was very glad I double checked. 
  • Question Re: Campus Interview Schedule. New to the market: I was invited to a campus interview. The travel arrangements made by the institution don't make sense. I am scheduled to arrive Thursday afternoon, go to dinner that evening, and then Friday go through the interviews, job talk, and such. They scheduled by trip back home for that same evening. Should I be worried that this program has an inside candidate? Does not have enough resources? A friend of mine that was hired last year was hosted for more than one day by all the universities where she interviewed...Is this common?
  • A1: I don't think you should read much into it. Maybe resources, but that doesn't reflect upon the dept. necessarily. They have to get approval for the costs from someone higher up, like the Dean. Often visits can be 2-3 days in TOTAL because of the cost of flights or the difficulty depts. have in trying to schedule all of the aspects of a visit: the dept. chair interview, dean/provost, students, your talk, teaching etc. Just focus on preparing for each step of your visit the best you can and don't read much into anything else. 
  • A2: I would not read absolutely anything into it. Having been on boths sides of searches, the schedule does not sound that unusual to me. As A1 said, it's better to focus on what you can control. If in the worst case scenario it is a fake search, though you'd rather spend you time differently, you'll have job interview training, a job talk you can reuse, and conatcts in another Spanish department.
  • A3: Often the short visit time has to do with what the administration is willing to pay for. At my institution we had to fight tooth and nail to allow candidates to stay two nights in the local hotel. I think our department ended up paying for the second night. My guess is that it has nothing to do with your status as a candidate. By the way, congratulations on getting a campus visit! 
  • A4: Do not worry at all. This is increasingly normal. Also, I had a campus interview last year with a one night visit and I got the job. 

General Discussion, Questions, and Inquiries Edit

List NEW information at top.

  • Application through Interview Exchange. University of Massachusetts Amherst asks for the application to be submitted through Interview Exchange. Does anyone know what this is? I am assuming it is a service like Interfolio but its website asks you to request a "demo" of what I can only assume is the software. Has anyone used this before? How much does it cost? Is it really worth spending money on this? I haven't seen many applications asking to use this service.  Thank you.
    • A1: I applied for a job through interview exchange. All I did was create an account and submit my materials. I was never asked to pay for anything.
    • A2: It's the application portal they use. You'll need to go to their website and navigate for employment or HR to get to the job listings. Then, it's like all other application portals - create a user, upload docs, etc. 
  • Deleted Posts. Every year we have the same issue: Some members delete posts from other members. I have no idea why some people do this (especially when the original post doesn't break any professional rules or ethics), but please STOP. This wiki is an invaluable source of information for many of us and we would like to have all the information that is available out there and ALL the opinions of our colleagues, not just those that fit YOUR understanding of the job market. Thank you. 
  • 95% of the time, when deletions happen, they are accidental: the editors aren't paying attention and don't notice that they're wiping out info. in other parts of the page. One thing that helps to limit accidental deletions: try to edit specific sections ("Skype Interviews," etc.) rather than the whole page when you want to add something. And pay attention when you're editing (use "Preview" before "Publish" to make sure your edit looks right). And if you notice deletions, revert ("undo") them ASAP if possible. Information can always be recovered from the page history, so notify an admin. if you can't revert the problem. Hope this helps.--Una74 (talk) 20:18, November 11, 2017 (UTC). Original Poster: Thank you for your answer, Una74. I praise what you do for all of us. However, I was talking about some other users who year after year delete those posts with which they don't agree. 
  • EmailedLOR's. A few posts seem to require letters be emailed directly by the recommendors (i.e. not on Interfolio). Any insight into a) why the committee would require this or b) if they'll actually care? It seems unecessary to inundate my recommendors' inboxes.
  • Sending a packet yourself via Interfolio is usually fine. Check in advance with the search contact in case of doubt, but I've always found that they happily accept the letters that way. And of course use the interfolio-generated email address for your letters when applying via an institution's particular online system.
  • Uof Jamestown. Has anyone seen the post in University of Jamestown (ND)? It literally says: "The University of Jamestown is seeking an energetic language teacher for the position of Assistant Professor of Foreign Language with ability to teach Spanish, Italian, French, and Portuguese."; I just can't believe it, do you people think this is a typo or a mistake? I am afraid even of asking them, because I can't believe they are looking for an instructor in the four languages...
  • I can't believe they're asking someone to live in Jamestown, North Dakota. Vuelvo a mi país a andar de ambulante o poner mi puesto de salchipapa antes de ir a vivir allá. #ladignidadantetodo
  • Jaja. Lastimosamente la mayoría de los puestos están en pueblos donde no hay nada. 
  • oh my god
  • Mua ha ha, me cautiva su inocencia <3
  • ¿La mía, o la de ellos? Just to you all know, I e-mail them and yep, it wasn't a typo, it was the actual requirement.
  • I know nothing about that U or town, and it sounds like a pretty rough gig... but I would encorage people not to dismiss "flyover country" out of hand. I'm from a city and have been very happy living in rural America. Not all small towns are the same, and if you like the outdoors and have a family it can be great (not to mention cheaper). If you do get an interwiew in a place like that, don't let your disdain show unless you have no interest in the job!
  • WIKI Job List. I wish the Job Postings section of this wiki were in chronological order of date posted (or even by application due date) rather than alphabetical order. Doing so would eliminate the need to look at each posting every time I want to find the new postings. What say ye?
  • A: You are clearly the dreaded reviewer #2. I'm exceedingly grateful to the people that provide the majority of contributions to this site and it seems a bit much to ask someone who's already working for free to bend to your whims and do a full site revamp because you feel inconvenienced. What say ye?
  • I just would like to say thanks for those who work and make this page possible, y'all are good people.
  • Wow. A simple suggestion followed by a logical rationale interpreted as an egregious offense. I don't sense ingratitude in the suggestion and it definately doesn't call for a mocking tone. Let's keep things civil; everyone is under a lot of stress these days.
  • This is exactly what's wrong with the "Academe" these days.
  • I see two sides to this interaction. The person above seems to be asking the site admins to change the site to serve her/his desires. Maybe not, but perhaps yes. The reason for this is because of her/his distaste for the "need look at each posting...to find the new postings." Is it a self-serving, entitled thing to ask that signals laziness or neediness? Yes. Was the responder who called her/him "the dreaded reviewer #2" a jerk. Yes. Here's the takeaway for all of you: I can say with great certainty that my colleagues and I would not hire either of these people if they betrayed such behaviors in interviews or as visiting faculty.
  • Portuguese Jobs. The Portuguese job situation always seems that it can't get any worse... until it does! As of 10/3, only 2 jobs specifically looking for Brazilianists/Portuguese specialists, both at Ivy league schools, and one that's open rank. Ninguém merece.
  • A: I feel you. Colonial went from consistently having 10+ jobs/yr to five two years ago, two last year, and now none this year. The few "Transatlantic Early Modern" offerings just mean that they want someone to teach everything pre-1800 so they don't have to hire anyone else OR they don't know what they want. Great year to be a linguist or U.S. Latinx Studies scholar. 
  • A2: ...and there is also only one job so far in Contemporary Peninsular...
  • A3: Translators should be ecstatic this year though!
  • A4: I am not sure why universities keep giving PhD degrees in Spanish literature. There are basically no jobs in literature anymore, everything is in applied linguistics now. 
  • A5: You have tapped into a deeper issue. There are too many Universities providing PhD's at a time when both the economy and the humanities as a field are in crisis (this issues are interrelated as well, of course!). Some of us already "wasted" our time and got a degree that will not necessarily lead to a job and are bouncing around year after year in search of the white elephant. The problem is for the future: those who are currently in graduate education and those who will start it in the future. 
  • A6: Perhaps this is an ignorant question, since I studied literature, but I'm not sure why colleges and universities are asking for degrees in linguistics. Language acquisition I understand, but wouldn't a degree in linguistics prepare you to teach course in linguistics, which not many institutions do? Anyway, at the risk of stating the obvious, job candidates need to apply to all the generalist jobs as well as the few positions in their field. Good luck to all!
  • A7: (responding principally to A5) Whether or not this is purposeful (nefarious) on the universities' part, it benefits the universities to keep enrolling PhD students. They get cheap labor during the PhD and a surplus of future workers. The universities can skim the supposed "cream of the crop" for the few positions available, and they can assume that the rest of us will be willing to take less-desirable lecturer, VAP, adjunct positions, despite being "over-qualified," given the state of the market.
  • A8: I agree with you. The staggering amount of graduate labor force is cheap labor, and then, as you point out, an excess of desperate workers. If over 500 people go to the job market on any given year and there are but less than a few hundred jobs advertised, the math is pretty obvious. I am not sure if the good or bad faith of the Univerisites makes any difference to this outcome at this point. But I am sure this dynamic will continue to reproduce. Also, the cream of the crop you mention, is not "really" the cream but the result of snobbism on the part of committies and an endogamic inter-selection between a few Universities, regardless of merit or qualification. 
  • A9: The grad students are less cheap labor than you'd imagine (first year fellowships, one class a semester, helath insurance, and so on, which are perks not necewssarily guaranteed to the adjuncts who would teach the courses otherwise). Though I think there is something to that, there is also a certainb inertia: without grad students professors could not teach graduate courses. 
  • A10: Regarding the above remarks on linguistics and US Latinx: I think what we are seeing playing out this year is the result of a decade of falling enrollments in foreign-language literatures. Students and universities have been STEM-obsessed since the Great Recession began and there's no sign of abatement. At my graduate institution, the number of Spanish majors has fallen below the levels you'd find at much smaller liberal arts colleges. Faculty sizes are being pruned by decanal decisions to shift resources to other areas. Peninsular took the brunt of the cuts from 2007-2015 or so, and now the Latin Americanist jobs are disappearing. Tenure lines can sometimes be preserved as Latinx studies in the name of diversity, even though these positions are being duplicated in English departments (where they belong, in my opinion, along with Asian-American and African-American literature). Eventually those will be gone, too. The current generation of tenured faculty in our field has simply failed to make the case for its relevance.
  • A11: I believe that we all should consider revamping our academic/career goals. The reality is that the job market is not going to get any better and the universities know we are desperate enough to accept any crapy VAP, lecturer, or adjunct position that will condemn us to be eternal Language Instructors. So... I chose not to choose academia. I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've been an overqualified VAP for 2 years and you're done teachin' a 4/4 load! 
  • Native vs. Near-Native Fluency.. So... when an app asks for native fluency... is that an automatic disqualifier for those in "near-native" fluency? Is it even worth my time to apply?
  • A1: I would assume it's just bad wording for near-native; certainly apply.   
  • Miami University. "Miami University will not sponsor for H1B work authorization for the 2017-18 year." WTF?!! A1: Thank the executive order that eliminated the prime that made the H1B processing more expeditious for employers nationwide. They will employ you under J1 though. O.P. They might, but it's very hard to go from J1 to H1B. Personally, I believe it's form of discrimination. Some universities are just using the new H1B processign times as an excuse to not hire "foreign aliens". This basically makes international applicants not eligible at all to apply for jobs here. A2: Not discrimination. But it sucks. Howver, consider the position of the hiring institution. Without the rush processing that was once available, there is really no assurance, based on search schedules (that usually end in February/March), that a visa will be approved in time for the start of the fall semester. Institutions were all reliant on the rush processing. What would you have them do? A3: I work at Miami. They need to fill that position for spring, not for next year. A4. They have started doing this before the processing times were changed. A5 to A4: You mean they as in the U of Miami, or universities in general? If this is happening in general, then prospective international phd students should be made aware of this. A4 to A5: Universities in general. I saw similar posts last year even before the new administration. Also, more and more you see the "Will you now or in the future require visa sponsorship from XYZ university?" in the online application. Search committees are also asking that question these days during the interviews, and in most case you will not hear back from them if the answer is "yes". 
  • MLA Job List.  Wasn't the MLA Job List supposed to be released yesterday (Sept 11)? The jobs that are posted now have been there for a while. 
  • List below was just updated with 9/11 MLA JIL jobs ... there were ~half dozen new jobs in the MLA List. Expect more to be added on Fri and through Sept.... If you don't see a position here, please feel free to add it. (9/12)
  • Thanks! I'm just surprised to only see 50 openings this year. So depressing already. LOL?
