Apologies for cross-posting. I am seeking participants in a professional development panel at the upcoming Sixteenth Century Studies Conference, in New Orleans, LA (16-19 October, 2014) on the topic of surviving the job market. The panel will be geared toward sharing advice and experiences with graduate students and new faculty. Participants will be asked to give a brief (5-10 minutes) presentation. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
--how to target applications to get past the first cut
--what do search committees really do?
