April 7, 2021
Negotiating academic job offers has become more challenging and complex during the COVID-19, writes Karen Kelsky. The author explains that though there are a variety of challenges associated with completing the interview and virtual campus interview process over Zoom, institutions tend not to rescind offers. Kelsky discusses key considerations, such as the institution type, issues related to remote teaching and relocation, and amount of time the interviewee will have to consider the offer. In conclusion, the author suggests that candidates know their worth, know the limitations and abilities of the institution, and keep their demands realistic. Chronicle of Higher Ed (International)
