Costs and Availability: 

Placement Services for the 2008 AOM Annual Meeting will be located in the Hilton Anaheim, 777 West Convention Way, Anaheim, CA 92802. Although the Online Placement Services are now on a rolling basis, it is still necessary to indicate that you are interested in being a part of the Onsite Placement Services at the Conference — our summer career fair. You must "buy" this option and a table when you put in your new ad beginning in June and continuing through the meeting in Anaheim. We will have training available onsite in Anaheim if you are unsure on how to place your add and the involvement in the summer career fair.  Because we have a number of options, you will need to proceed to our website to determine your costs.

Recruiting Schools and Organizations: Please note that our summer career fair entitles you to have your ad visible to all applicants who sign up for the career fair, the ability to rent an interview table in the Placement area where you can talk with prospective applicants and the ability to see all applicants. You may also choose to upgrade your ad to a sponsored version which will allow your logo and school information to be viewed by all applicants and not just those who selected you or your position type and to have your position information displayed to applicants in the restricted waiting area.

Tables are provided for conducting interviews during the Academy of Management’s meeting in Anaheim . They are located in small-medium size rooms (6–15 tables/room) and will be available from Saturday, August 9 until Tuesday, August 12.  Because of limited tables and small rooms, the cost to reserve a table for the meeting is $125. We may have some tables available on a daily rental basis at a prorated cost.   Table layouts and reservations will be available online with the purchase of an ad at http://jobs.aomonline.org beginning in June on a first-come, first-served basis.  Tables may be reserved onsite if space is available.   

Applicants: You do not have to pay extra for the summer career fair, but you do need to register for it. If you have any problems registering please bring your information to the Anaheim meeting and we will be able to help you. If you have not yet paid your annual applicant fee of $35 then you will need to pay it and then you can register for the summer career fair.

Please note that the registration fees for Placement Services are separate from the registration fees for attending the annual meeting. If you have not already done so, please take this opportunity to register for the conference


We will have several workshops to help recruiters and applicants with the registration and interview processes.

Ins and Outs of Faculty Recruiting Workshop
Saturday, August 9th:  8:00 - 9:30am
Hilton Anaheim, California Pavilion D

This session is designed for individuals who represent institutions with position openings.  It provides information on hiring practices, statistics from past and current years, and applicant perceptions. The session will be an interactive format and features a panel of placement experts.

Ins and Outs of Recruiting International Doctoral Candidates
Saturday, August 9th:  10:00 - 11:30am

Hilton Anaheim, California Pavilion D

This session will address the issues related to recruiting international candidates. These issues would include such topics as determining the equivalency of doctoral programs, assessing publishing in international journals, the logistics of travel and campus visits, and work visas and U.S. residency requirements. It is designed for both recruiters and international doctoral candidates and all Academy members are invited.

Placement for Applicants Workshop
Saturday, August 9th:  5:30 - 7:00pm
Hilton Anaheim, California Pavilion D

This session is designed for applicants.  It will provide information on university hiring practices, statistics from past and current years, interview strategies, and suggestions for placement success.  The session will be an interactive format and features a panel of university placement experts.

We will also be having small group sessions on these same topics and on how the new system works that you may sign up for in the Placement Services Waiting Area. They will take place near the Placement Services Waiting area.

Placement Activities

We believe the interview areas offered by Placement Services are a very appropriate location for interviews. Additionally, interviews may be conducted in conversation areas available throughout the conference facilities.

The Academy of Management is concerned about providing appropriate settings for conducting interviews. Settings that will accommodate candidates with disabilities and that do not have the potential of creating an awkward interview environment. Hotel guest rooms are usually inappropriate settings for conducting recruiting interviews.

Excerpt from the Academy's Code of Ethical Conduct

The Academy of Management and its members are committed to providing academic environments that are free of sexual harassment and all forms of sexual intimidation and exploitation. Sexual harassment consists of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other visual, verbal, or physical conduct of a when:

  1. It is implicitly or explicitly suggested that submission to or rejection of the conduct will be a factor in academic employment, admission, evaluation, or participation in an academic activity; or
  2. The conduct has the purpose of interfering with an individual's academic or work performance, by creating an intimidating, hostile, or otherwise unacceptable educational or work environment.

The determination of what constitutes sexual harassment depends upon the specific facts and the context in which the conduct occurs. Sexual harassment takes many forms: subtle and indirect, blatant and overt. It can be conduct affecting an individual of the opposite sex or same sex, between peers or between individuals in a hierarchical relationship, or between teacher and student. Regardless of the intentions of the actor, the key question is always whether the conduct would be unwelcome to the individual to which it is directed.
