    Virtual Careers in the Rough: Call for Manuscripts


    The Careers Division is proud to offer a great opportunity to discuss your careers-related research with leading careers scholars who will mentor you regarding your topic choice, theoretical development, methodology, data analysis, and discuss the implications of your careers research.


    Similar to the popular Careers in the Rough workshop at the annual meeting, this virtual workshop will involve participants receiving feedback on their near final-form manuscript from an eminent scholar in the Careers Division during a 1-1.5 hour Skype session. Scholars serving as mentors for the March 2018 session are Belle Rose Ragins, Tim Hall, Sherry Sullivan, Michael Arthur, Scott Seibert, Maria Kraimer, Daniel Turban, and Peter Heslin.


    Participants will be placed in conversation with a mentor based largely on the match between their paper and the scholars' interests/areas of expertise. Each participant will receive feedback about the positive aspects of their work, as well as be invited into dialogue about how their manuscript might be improved. Participants may also be placed in a triad, with one mentor and another participant. In such instances, participants are expected to provide a friendly review of each other's work so as to provide developmental feedback to one another during their Skype session.


    Who is this workshop for? This workshop is open to careers researchers at all levels. To provide developmental opportunities to those who are not able to attend the annual meeting, this workshop is open to those not attending the AoM conference in Chicago.




    If you would like to participate in the Virtual Careers in the Rough, please email your manuscript submission to Lauren Keating (l.a.keating@unsw.edu.au) with the subject "CAR Virtual Careers in the Rough" by the 18th of February, 2018.
