The Careers Division of the Academy of Management is proud to offer junior (and more experienced) scholars the opportunity to get feedback on their careers-related manuscript from leading, senior careers scholars at the "Careers in the Rough" professional development workshop (PDW) at this year's Academy of Management meeting in Boston (August 4-8, 2023).
Aims and Mentoring Groups. The aim of this workshop is to give career scholars the opportunity to receive feedback on their near final-form manuscript from eminent scholars in the Careers Division. Manuscripts should address a career-related topic, including career outcomes (e.g., success), career management, job mobility, employability, career shocks, work-family issues, dark side of careers, race, culture, and gender effects on careers, labor force diversity, and careers in a virtual world, among others. After manuscript acceptance, mentors will be paired with mentees based on the fit between the papers and the scholars' interests/areas of expertise. We strive for groups of four: two mentors and two mentees. Both mentors will give feedback on each manuscript, and we ask each mentee to read the other's manuscript.
Meeting Format. The groups of four will meet for two hours to discuss both papers (around one hour per manuscript) in-person during the "Careers in the Rough" PDW at the AOM Conference (for further information, please consult the conference program in due course).
Mentors. We are very grateful to this year's mentors for their commitment to this virtual workshop. Our mentors include: Fida Afiouni (American University of Beirut), Jos Akkermans (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Maike Andresen (University of Bamberg), Yehuda Baruch (Southampton Business School, U.K), Gayle Baugh (University of West Florida), Gina Dokko (University of California, Davis), Danna Greenberg (Babson College), Nicky Dries (KU Leuven), Kimberly Eddleston (Northeastern University), Mel Fugate (Mississippi State University), Peter Heslin (UNSW, Australia), Wolfgang Mayrhofer (WU Vienna), Maury Peiperl (George Mason University School of Business), Astrid Reichel (University of Salzburg), Bert Schreurs (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Sherry Sullivan (Bowling Green State University), Daniel Spurk (University of Bern), and Jelena Zikic (York University).
