Special Session (Roundtable): 2014 SAMLA Conference (Atlanta, GA)
Today's job market is brutal. The market – starting as early as July and lasting as long as the following June – can be debilitating to one's health (emotional and physical), relationships, scholarship, and teaching. Further problematizing the situation, job seekers are often on the market for more than one year which can lead to fatigue and burnout. Given the exhausting nature of the market, job seekers must have a toolkit to help them survive this trying period.
This roundtable seeks to bring together a diverse range of individuals (different disciplines, backgrounds, appointments, etc.) who have successfully navigated the market in numerous ways.
