    Dear Colleagues,

    On behalf of the SLWIS leadership team, I'm delighted to announce our upcoming online webinar entitled "What You Need to Know About the Academic Job Market: TESOL/SLW Jobs." The webinar will take place on Friday, October 19, 2018, from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT. It will be facilitated by members of the leadership team: Aylin Atilgan Relyea, Veronika Maliborska, Betsy Gilliland, and Megan Siczek. Some topics to be discussed include:

    • Where to look for academic jobs and how the TESOL Job Marketplace operates
    • How to create a job application portfolio 
    • Jobs in different contexts: EAP programs, K-12, IEPs, and post-secondary
