A Statement on Academic Placement and the Fall 2021 Job Market

Monica Gerhardt

Due to the shift to a virtual 2021 AMA Summer Academic Conference, the American Marketing Association will not be providing Academic Placement services as part of the 2021 summer meeting. In lieu of a hiring event, the AMA asks employers and job seekers to consider the following hiring schedule regarding the Fall 2021 job market:

  • September 1: All job postings to be available, and openings may be sent to ELMAR.
  • September 15 – October 15: First round interviews to be held.
  • October 1 – November 30: Campus visits, and AMA recommends site visits to take place with guidance set forth by COVID-19 protocol established by the hiring institutions.

In lieu of the Academic Placement event, the AMA will be providing more details on resources for job seekers, including programming in collaboration with the Doctoral Student SIG before and at virtual Summer AMA.
