Hacking the Liberal Arts College Job Application

Thursday, October 12, 12 PM – 1 PM ET

Helen Kim, Whitman College
Laura Arnold Leibman, Reed College

So you are on the job market and see a job advertised at a liberal arts college. What makes this position different from the research school where you got your PhD? What specific things are they looking for? How should you tailor your letter to showcase why you are a good fit?

Join Helen Kim (Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Sociology, Whitman College) and Laura Arnold Leibman (Kenan Professor of English and Humanities, Reed College) for this hands-on workshop on how to make your application count. With over 40 years of combined experience at liberal arts colleges and dozens of searches under our belts, we will cover the ins and outs of applying to work at liberal arts colleges and go over sample letter templates.

A Zoom link will be provided closer to the date of the webinar.
