The Committee for Graduate Students, chaired by Elise S. Lipkowitz, has updated and redesigned the Resources for History Graduate Students page on the AHA web site. The page is now broken into three sections: “Graduate School from Start to Finish,” “Preparing for the Job Market,” and “More Resources.” The “Graduate School from Start to Finish” section takes students step by step through the graduate school process: from admissions and acceptance to course work, preparing for comprehensive exams to conceptualizing a dissertation, networking, publishing, and more. In the second section students can find job market resources, with c.v., cover letter, and portfolio help, and links to sites that list jobs in academia, public history, or secondary education. The final section, “More Resources,” links students to articles, books, and other sites that they may also find helpful.
