Announcing the AMA Transitions Guide for Job Market Prep

AMA_Transitions_GuideDocSIG is pleased to announce a brand new publication in collaboration with the American Marketing Association and 21 great marketing scholars.

AMA Transitions Guide: Navigating the Progression from Doctoral Student to Marketing Professor is a resource designed to provide an overview of the traditional job preparation and placement process in marketing. It includes codified standard practices (and best practices) that address areas such as:

  • Job search
  • C.V. and packet organization
  • Summer AMA interviews
  • Fly-outs and research presentations
  • Negotiating offers
  • Preparing for success as a new faculty member

We encourage students and departments to take advantage of this new resource. We also extend our sincere thanks to Lynn Brown-Reyes at the American Marketing Association, editors, designers, DocSIG officers, and the faculty who contributed their experience and expertise toward the compilation of this guide:
