How to navigate the academic job market?

When:  May 17, 2022 from 18:00 to 20:00 (CET)
No one might actually like it, but we all can't live without it either, and yet its inner workings are a deep mystery to many. Of course, we are referring to the academic job market! Navigating the job market for junior scholars can be challenging, even more so during a pandemic.

Therefore, the Social Issues in Management (SIM) division of the Academy of Management is organising an online event on May 17th at 1800 -  2000 CEST (0900 - 1100 PST; 1200 - 1400 EDT; 1700 - 1900 BST; 2130 - 2330 IST) to help junior scholars in the broad field of social issues in management (e.g., business ethics, CSR, environment, governance, society, sustainability, etc.) to listen to experiences from recruiters and recruited candidates from different parts of the world.

We have invited a panel of scholars from Recruiting Committees (Stephen Brammer (Bath, UK), Jason Pattit (St Thomas, USA), & Jo-Ellen Pozner (Santa Clara, USA) and a panel of recently recruited candidates (Julia Grimm (Jönköping University, Sweden), Kam Phung (currently Cambridge, soon to join Simon Fraser, Canada), & Milo Wang (Arizona State, USA)) to discuss their experiences, share tips and tricks and answer your questions, for instance on teaching load, research support, or academic culture in the respective institutes.

It is a chance to explore and understand the academic climate around the world by talking to scholars who have been involved in the recruitment process, from different sides of the table and in different regions of the world.

The panel discussion will be via Zoom on May 17th from 1800 - 2000 CEST (0900 - 1100 PST; 1200 - 1400 EDT; 1700 - 1900 BST; 2130 - 2330 IST), moderated by Frank de Bakker (IESEG School of Management) & Sebastian Hafenbrädl (IESE). Please pre-register for attending the event:
