Assistant Professor in Food and Nutrition at The Department of Food and Nutrition at Indiana University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a nine-month tenure track position at the Assistant Professor rank beginning August 2012. Review of applications begins March 15, 2012.

About: The Department is one of nine units in the College of Health and Human Services with six tenure track faculty lines. The department offers a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, a Master of Science in Food and Nutrition, and a Dietetic Internship. At the undergraduate level the B.S. curriculum includes three major tracks: culinary dietetics, dietetics, and nutrition. The culinary dietetics, dietetics, and dietetic internship are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetic Education. The graduate program emphasizes applied nutrition.

I'll admit that back in 2004, no one was using social media the way it is used today. If I'm correct, Facebook was still only for college students, Twitter was nonexistent, and social bookmarking was just becoming popular (Del.ici.ous?). When I was job searching for my first job, I used Google (today I've expanded that to include Bing). Now you can follow organizations via Twitter, subscribe to RSS feeds, and utilize email to make search efforts easier.

What are the best strategies at finding relevant jobs? Listserves? E-mail? Twitter? RSS? Personal acquaintances/networks/referrals? Interning? Volunteering? I'm not sure there is one best answer, but as you become more specialized and experienced the avenues in which you search may shrink. When I pose this question to friends, "How did you find your job, or how are you searching?" I can never get a straight answer. I think there are so many different ways, it makes the job seeker feel inadequate, as if this very question poses a threat to everything they've learned so far. Perhaps it exposes a weakness of not knowing where to look, or not searching hard or long enough. I can't seem to get a straight answer, or a confident answer from anyone. So I went over to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Finding and Applying for Jobs and Evaluating Offers. They have a bulleted list on how to search and where to search. At the top of the list: personal contacts, school career planning and placement services, and employers.
