    Abstract:
    As the 2017-18 academic job cycle came to an end I found myself, for the first time in five years, in the enviable position of not having to resume my search for employment again in the fall, thanks to a two-year position at a very eminent institution. This good fortune has prompted me to compile my reflections on the classical archaeology job market in North America, and this white paper is the result. I do not claim to provide any definitive answers in it, nor even to raise any intelligent questions. My only goal in offering it to the academic community is to use my experiences to shed whatever light I can on what is an opaque and frequently terrifying stage in any scholar’s career, especially given that most classical archaeology graduate programs fail to provide any meaningful preparation to their students in this respect. This version was revised in March of 2019.
