Possible pieces for student dossiers
To ensure that dossiers look as good as possible, students may want to ask for help in their job search efforts. This help will probably come from mentoring done by POS chairs during the search process. If the POS chair is unable to perform this mentoring, Ph.D. students should check with the Director of Graduate Education, who will put them in touch with a member of the departmental faculty who can serve as an alternate mentor.
Students may access the MLA Job Information List using the departmental access code. Please check with the Graduate Secretary to acquire access. Job listings sent to the department are often posted on department bulletin boards or via email.
