Contact Dr. David Bell, Chair of Linguistics at Ohio University,

Hatfield is an Associate Lecturer in OPIE.

Abstract: Graduate students in linguistics and foreign languages need to be aware that Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language is an ever-shifting and competitive job market, influenced by a variety of factors from the local to the global level; as a result, they need to know how to market themselves. Topics covered in this talk will include an overview of the ESL/EFL job market, how and where to search for teaching jobs, the types of jobs generally available to recent graduates, the differences between curriculum vitae and resumes, and how to develop a strong CV as a graduate student. While this talk will focus on ESL/EFL, many of the concepts discussed are relevant to other language teaching jobs and academia at large.
