Elimination of Employment Center Registration Fees for Candidates
SBL and the American Academy of Religion have eliminated all Employment Center fees for candidates. Beginning in 2015, all active members of the American Academy of Religion or the Society of Biblical Literature who have registered for the Annual Meeting will be able to register as candidates with the Employment Center free of charge. Registered candidates will continue to be able to post their CVs on the Employment Services website for employer review and will receive an onsite edition of Employment Listings at the Annual Meetings. This decision reflects our concern to reduce the cost of interviewing onsite and to make conference attendance more affordable for our members.
