Tip for Job Hunters

David Evans wrote on the search for a flexible candidate.

One of the more interesting comments at a panel [at the CIC conference] was about how hard it is to find new faculty members who are genuinely interested in teaching general-education courses, and who are, more broadly, willing to expand their teaching into new areas to meet the needs of an institution that probably has fewer faculty members than the specialties in a discipline might ideally call for.

So, be willing to teach gen ed classes and other courses outside of your specialty if you want to work for SLACs or smaller schools.
