  1. Any thoughts/tips on how to inquire about placement rates and positions for recent grads from a program? I've seen a few departments include some information about recent placements on their websites, but even that doesn't necessarily reflect the percentage very accurately. I feel a bit awkward asking a DGS the question but I also consider it quite important in making the decision between schools to get a clear picture of how the program is viewed on the job market.
  2. https://www.historians.org/wherehistorianswork This was on the gradschool reddit page. I’m not sure if this was already posted before, but I don’t recall this ever being put up. This details the career outcomes for history phds produced from 2004 to 2013. It’s interesting stuff because you can also search the outcomes by individual departments. I only have two comments about the data. One, it largely confirms the consensus that if you want to have a greater shot at a tenure track job, you should attend a top ranked school. The usual suspects (such as Harvard, Yale, or Princeton) have the
  3. Which departments in the humanities are the best and worst for landing academic jobs? I got my master's in English literature, but have been thinking about getting my PhD in history or sociology. Three professors (in English and History) strongly advised me to go into English, which apparently is one of the best (albeit still extremely competitive) for academic jobs. They also said History is one of the most difficult. How true is this? Is there any way to validate these claims?
  4. For a long time my background was in a VERY specialized field in the museum sector (conservation). There are VERY few jobs. After my husband and I moved to upstate New York I was extremely lucky to find a good job in my field, but it was an hour and a half drive one way from our house, which we were/are not willing to move from for various reasons. The drive eventually became physically, emotionally, and financially draining, and when the opportunity came up to leave to do a funded PhD I took it. Now, halfway through my program, I need to start thinking about what might be next, and suddenly f
  5. Hey All. As I work through my decisions and try to navigate the darkness that is the future job market, I'm tempted to just go straight to the source. Has anyone ever contacted programs they'd like to work in post-graduation just to find out what they're specifically looking for in potential tenure-track hires? It seems to me like a good tactic for not only planning the next 5 years, but also setting goals, developing specific skills, and (as I'm in the decision phase currently) deciding what schools are best according to whether these specific hiring committees are looking more at progr
  6. Hi all. So, I'll be on the job market in about a year's time, and I'm starting to prepare job application materials and do a little planning. I notice that in my conversations with more advanced peers (especially people currently or recently on the job market), they always seem to have a good sense of whether the market for our discipline (history) is "much stronger than last year" or "really bad" or whatever. How does one even get a sense of these things beyond hearing just hearing other people's impressions? All I ever hear is the doom and gloom about the humanities job market. I can lo
  7. Hi, I've just finished putting myself through college while working full-time (I was attending school part-time)... Basically I'm poor, I don't have family that can support me or help me financially and I have no savings. I didn't plan on going to grad school after college, but my undergrad professors thought I'd have a good chance to be accepted somewhere based on the work I did the last couple of years. I told myself to block out any money worries, to give myself this "great gift", the opportunity to get into a grad program that hopefully will help me further develop my work as an art
