The AHA will no longer sponsor employment interviews at its annual meeting.  This change encompasses both the Job Center and interviewing suites facilitated by the Association.  In making this decision, the AHA Council took into consideration the dramatic decline in conference interviewing in recent years, along with issues relating to the conference’s general tone and atmosphere, technological change, and financial considerations, especially for prospective interviewees.

The AHA Council has issued new guidelines for first-round interviews that refer to all potential interview venues.

The Career Fair will remain an important part of the conference, with its emphasis on broadening employment horizons for historians.
