JOB HUNTING, RECRUITING, AND HIRING--A CALL FOR COOL.
BOGORAD, SAMUEL N.
"A RESOLUTION TO ESTABLISH PROFESSION-WIDE ACCEPTANCE OF CERTAIN STANDARD RECRUITMENT PRACTICES" WAS PRESENTED AT THE DECEMBER 1966 MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF DEPARTMENTS OF ENGLISH (ADE). ALTHOUGH ADE VOTED TO TABLE THIS RESOLUTION, DISCUSSION OF RECRUITING PRACTICES HAS CONTINUED. AT THE DECEMBER 1967 MEETING THE FUTURE PROJECTS COMMITTEE OF ADE DECIDED TO SOLICIT POSITION PAPERS FROM CHAIRMEN ON THIS MATTER. THIS ARTICLE PRESENTS THE POSITION OF A CHAIRMAN OF A DEPARTMENT CONSISTING OF 35 FULL-TIME FACULTY MEMBERS IN AN INSTITUTION OF JUST OVER 5,000 TOTAL ENROLLMENT. A DESCRIPTION IS GIVEN OF HOW LETTERS FROM APPLICANTS ARE ANSWERED AND HOW SCREENING, INTERVIEWING, AND APPOINTMENTS ARE CONDUCTED. THE POSITION TAKEN IS THAT THE SITUATION OF JOB HUNTING, RECRUITING, AND HIRING IS NOT SO SERIOUS OR CHAOTIC AS TO WARRENT IMMEDIATE PROFESSION-WIDE ACCEPTANCE OF STANDARD PRACTICES. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE ADE BULLETIN," NUMBER 17, MAY 1968, PAGES 7-12. (BN)
