How to Get a Job

The American Philological Association has a Checklist of Advice for Job Candidates in Classics. I'm surprised that it doesn't give advice on one of the most important qualifications of all, membership in a minority group. A recent announcement of a tenure track position in Roman history at the University of Toronto had this coda, sadly all too common in these degenerate times:
The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community. The University especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
I'm indebted to rogueclassicism for both of these bits of information, although it was my devious, politically incorrect mind, envious of those who actually get tenure track jobs, that combined them.
