Work/ Career

I am sending this email via my partner's services because this is the only real access I have to the web, and also because at my college, it is difficult to speak about these things without a hundred or so people knowing about it. It is a very small place. Although my own situation may be hopeless, partly because I have pretty much determined to leave anyway, I see the continuing practices related to the hiring of candidates as so abusive, it astounds me. I am just wondering if there is anyway that their hiring practices can be made available to future candidates both in Women's Studies and in Humanities. Apparently, I am not the only candidate in recent years who has been so abominably treated, and while I am prepared to move on, recent events indicate that they have every chance of continuing these practices with other unknowing candidates who are hired in the future. I would appreciate any information you might be able to give me in this regard.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation, which sounds compromised. I would love to offer advice and "helpful hints" but unfortunately, I'm unclear about what "hiring practices" you are referring to. In general, I suggest that you contact the U.S. Department of Labor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. If it pertains solely to academia, I would contact the American Assocation of University Women for a referral.

Please feel free to email me back if you have a specific requests. Otherwise, good luck.
