Employment Center Candidate Services

All active members of the American Academy of Religion or the Society of Biblical Literature who have registered for the Annual Meeting can register as candidates with the Employment Center free of charge

All registered candidates receive:
• Access to the Annual Meeting edition of Employment Listings containing registered jobs and employer info
• Opportunity to submit a CV for employers to review online


To register for the Employment Center, you must first register for the Annual Meetings. You may register as an AAR or SBL member or joint member.

The registration period opens in May of 2021 and continues through the Annual Meetings.  Once you register for the Center as a candidate, you may submit your CV for employer review.

Please note: it is not necessary to register as a candidate simply to meet with an employer. Any Annual Meetings registrant (you must have a name badge) may freely use the Interview Hall if an employer directly invites you for an interview.

You must be logged in as a member to register for the Employment Center.



Employment Listings

Candidates are encouraged to begin reviewing Employment Listings and start applying for jobs in August.
Employers registered with the Employment Center are required to post job descriptions in the online edition of Listings. These ads will be marked with an Employment Center logo. Note that job applications are often due well before the Annual Meetings so that employers can prearrange their Employment Center interviews.

You must be logged in as a member to view Employment Listings.

Once registered with the Employment Center as a candidate, you will receive email instructions for uploading your CV within 72 hours. CVs are categorized by field of specialization and searchable by both specialization and candidate name.
