Job Market Crash Course: Five Ways to Make a Great Impression

I am seeking roundtable papers/presentations that will foster a discussion about common questions that arise for graduate students and postdocs as they enter the job market. Advice will address careers both in academia and in alt-ac. The session is intended to create a space in which seasoned professionals and early career scholars can share tips and ideas, describe job application experiences, and foster mentorship relationships.

To that end, roundtable participants are asked to provide suggestions and advice on five of the thorniest aspects of job hunting:

As a material phenomenon, however, the Anthropocene divides “us” into disparate groups—whites and people of color, upper classes and working classes, men and women, citizens and refugees. How, in Bruno Latour’s terms, can we track the translations between nonhumans and humans? How, from Dipesh Chakrabarty’s perspective, can we straddle the thought rifts between the planetary and the global?
