This group is for those who would like to share resources related to the academic job market (and, perhaps, the alt-ac market). It is a collegial, supportive community driven by hope and pragmatism.
The “site” is where we host blog posts about the job market and instructions on uploading materials. Sample application materials are hosted under “Docs”.
