Jobs with 2022 Application Deadlines[]

Word on the Street[]

RE: Mary Baldwin associate/full

  • Is this a case where they’re actually recruiting? That is, is it worth applying if you haven’t been invited to apply?

RE: Trinity position

  • Can someone confirm this job actually exists / how they know it exists? Can't locate posting... [Yes--call for application circulated via email by department chair with one week between call and application deadline....]
  • Why is this even listed here? This is clearly not a genuine search. There is an early modernist VAP there at the moment so clearly the job is already in their pocket--otherwise why a one-week difference between the "official" call for applications and the deadline? Ridiculous. It's totally insulting that someone keeps posting this fake listing to the Wiki, frankly.
  • Note that TPII observes inside candidates not getting the post more often than not, FWIW:
  • Where I work being the inside candidate almost always works against you--it's a little like the Price Is Right where you can have the perfectly good colleague in front of you, or go for what's behind door number 3 !
  • Update: job went to an outside candidate as of early Jan

RE: Old Dominion University
