In little more than a month, hundreds of historians will descend on Washington, D.C. in search of the perfect job. For some, it will be that first, foot-in-the-door, tenure-track position. For others, it will be that position which represents the culmination of a career of teaching and researching. In any case, preparing for a job interview at the AHA annual meeting can be a stressful experience.

With the hopes of making preparations a little less worrisome, here are some articles that have appeared in Perspectives, the Annual Meeting Supplement, and other AHA publications in recent years, all of which provide helpful advice on how to prepare for the Job Register.

And don’t forget the Job Register home page and the Professional Division’s advice for interviewers on how to treat job candidates appropriately.
