In an effort to highlight the diverse range of scholarship at the upcoming annual meeting, we’re featuring different sessions on the blog each week.

This year, the Professional Division of the AHA Council will again hold its annual workshop to provide advice to historians on the job market. Co-sponsored by the Graduate and Early Career Committee and the Coordinating Council for Women in History, Interviewing in the Job Market in the Twentieth Century will connect job seekers with volunteer interviewers and emphasize the broad range of career possibilities for history PhDs.

This session is themed around guiding historians through new challenges in professional development in a changing world. Participants will meet with representatives from spheres both inside and outside academia, including community colleges, museums, national parks, and businesses. Discussion will be informal and tailored to personal interests.

Job seekers should also plan to attend the Job Center and Career Fair at the annual meeting to get the most out of the career resources the AHA has to offer.
