TitelWomen in German Conference: The Changing Job Market
BeschreibungWorkshops: The Changing Job Market

This session will be a series of concurrent workshops that address the changing job market in academe. Academic institutions are increasingly moving towards employing faculty on a part-time or full-time non-tenure-track basis. Each year sees the creation of more dual- and multi-language positions. And tenure-track jobs become harder and harder to find (let alone secure). It is time for everyone from graduate students to department chairs, from senior professors to adjuncts to be aware of these trends and respond accordingly. This workshop session at the Women in German 2010 Conference is designed to create a space in which to discuss and take action on a variety of related issues.

Possible workshop session topics include:

- how to prepare graduate students for the job search (or help them find
non-academic jobs)
- what to know if you're considering an adjunct or full-time non-tenure-track position
- how to advocate for German in times of institutional budget cuts
- how to transition to non-academic jobs (including: how to adapt your c.v.)
- what you can do as a department chair during a time of economic insecurity
- how to find outside funding to support your research
- how to combine motherhood with job insecurity
- how to enter retirement and stay active in the field

The panel organizers will assemble a number of workshops (ideally approx. 5) that appeal to Wiggies at various points in their careers. Each workshop should be a "how-to" session and is expected to provide its participants with concrete information and/or strategies for coping with this new job market. Workshop organizers should plan an interactive session, provide plenty of time for questions and answers, and consider helping participants
create something concrete (e.g., a resume reworked for a non-academic position).

Please submit proposals of approx. 300-500 words that makes the case for the workshop, outlines what you intend to do during the session, and what the participants will gain from it.

Please send your proposals to Allie Merley Hill ( and Ulrike Brisson ( by March 15, 2010.
