Class Description

This three-hour session will provide you with an overview of the academic job search process, including finding open positions, preparing and submitting applications, and navigating initial MLA/Skype interviews and campus visits. We will focus on three central documents that can be useful for applying for anything from tenure track jobs to adjunct positions: the CV, the cover letter, and the teaching philosophy. Bring your notebook and your questions. (You may also find it useful to bring your in-progress materials if you are already working on these documents.) Be prepared for a lot of information to be squeezed in to three hours!

NOTE: This seminar is for GrubStreet instructors only.

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

For more detailed information about GrubStreet scholarships, including how to contribute to scholarship funds for other students, click here.

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!

We ask that instructors enable closed captioning and send a transcript of the session after class. You can also enable closed captioning at any time during the meeting. If your instructor forgets to send the transcript, just send ’em an email!
