Post-Graduate Career Highlights

Image Picker for Section 0

We take an active role in helping our graduate students compete for good jobs in academia. In response to the increasingly competitive job market we have established a formal Job Placement Committee that helps prepare graduate students for every step of the academic job search. The committee combines group meetings with one-on-one advising sessions and mock interviews in order to make sure that our students are prepared to compete for jobs. While the committee organizes the process, many members of the English faculty and University Writing Center participate by helping with workshops and mock interviews.

Students interested in careers outside the academy also benefit from our internship and GA-ship opportunites in areas such as publishing, museums, and special collections. Given that many academic job interviews also ask candidates to speak to how they'd forge connections to local institutions, these opportunities serve a dual purpose of preparing students for careers inside and outside the academy.

Here is a listing of tenure-track placements (or tenure equivalent if the school does not grant tenure) since 2008:
