  1. U of Massachusetts, Amherst
    • In the initial application, they requested contact information for references. On 12/1 I got an e-mail asking me to request letters from the three recommenders. I'm not sure if this is a sign that I'm being considered further or if they sent that request to all applicants. (5x)
    • I spoke with Human Resources after I submitted the application, and the system is set up to automatically request letters after you submit your application.
  2. Virginia Commonwealth University
    • I submitted contact info for my rec letters but they haven't been requested.  Did this happen to you?
    • 2/26: They also have not requested my rec letters.
  3. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo
    • Has anyone heard anything?
    • Haven't heard anything, also waiting ...
    • They have started contacting candidates for phone interviews (3/26)
    • According to the information posted above, the committee contacted candidates for on campus interviews even before all of the first round phone interviews were conducted. Does anyone have any insight into this or into the current status of the search?
    • Thanks for posting this! I had a phone interview with them on 4/10 and was also wondering.
    • Ok, the date on which candidates were contacted for campus interviews has now been corrected above.
  4. Can't we introduce a way to highlight new offers for a week or so? I always find it very difficult to detect the new ones.
  5. I like the idea of highlighting new offers once a week!
    • An additional suggestion for seeing what the most recent changes are: Where it says "Edit" at the top of the page, you can click the arrow, and select "history" and from there you can see when the page was last updated and compare with earlier versions to see what changes have been made. -- Thank you!
    • RSS Feed to show recent edits has been installed at the top of the page. For more instant updates, subscribe to the RSS feed for this page through any available RSS reader.
  6.  Any news on the University of Southern Indiana position post-Skype interviews?
    • Nothing here.
  7. I don't think the UC Santa Barbara position is filled yet, but they have narrowed it down to four candidates. They are having follow-up interviews as I write this (3/24).
  8. University of Pennsylvania (TT position)
    • Does anyone know where in the hiring process they are? Did they make an offer to a candidate? (3/26)
    • Yes, they did and it was accepted. I've updated above. (4/13)
  9. Is there a reason why the links to departmental Web sites congratulating students on receiving jobs, and therefore evidence that job searches are over, keep getting deleted? I think it's quite useful to see who has received the various jobs when we actually have evidence about this.
    • Yes, please keep those links!
    • If you are talking about the Cornell U position, I deleted (numerous times!) one link because there are TWO positions at Cornell U, and someone kept linking the same person twice, and it wasn't accurate. I kept the VAP link, which is accurate, but deleted the visiting lecturer link.
    • OK, thanks!
  10. Any News on the Truman State job?
    • I received an e-mail this morning from a department chair saying we should all congratulate one of the former graduate students from our program as he had accepted a TT job at Truman State (5/9).
    • I heard from a colleague that one week ago they were contacting people to see if they were interested in interviews.  That certainly moved fast.
  11. The lecturer position at Rice was listed under both 'Visiting/Lecturer/non-Tenure Track Positions' and 'Applied Linguistics/Language Coordinator/Pedagogy/Program Director Positions', so I deleted it from the former category. Also, in case anyone is interested to know, I had interviewed for this position back in December and did not get it; then it was posted again in spring. I received an e-mail from them on 5/5 inviting me to apply again, stating that they were hiring another lecturer (in addition to the one who had already been hired) "due to student interest."
