Rob Jenkins, a 25-year community-college veteran and The Chronicle of Higher Education's "Two-Year Track" columnist, will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of teaching at a community college. He'll offer practical advice on how to tailor your application and CV for two-year college jobs, how to ace the interview, and what to expect once you land an offer. He'll also talk candidly about issues like earning tenure, moving up into administration, and using a community-college job as a "stepping stone" to a university position. The presentation will be highly interactive, with questions and discussion greatly encouraged.
