Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is your guiding star from starting with the process of looking for a college position all the way through getting hired and succeeding once hired. Dr. Hamann anticipates and answers the questions the person looking for a college position may not even know to ask until it is too late...like during the interview with the dean!" --Rob Cutietta, Dean, USC Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California

"On Staff provides clear, concise, and comprehensive information for individuals seeking collegiate music faculty positions. Valuable insights on locating openings, application materials, interviewing, negotiating contracts, and successfully starting a new job are provided. It is a must have text for doctoral students, graduate student advisors, and early career professionals!" --William I. Bauer, University of Florida
