Nearly a month ago I was informed that my contract is not to be renewed at USC Upstate. This puts me back in the job market for accounting professors, but at a time when most schools already have made their hiring decisions for next year.
Why am I departing USC Upstate? No reason was given, but a sudden change in deans has brought in a dean who does not want to proceed with a strategic move incorporating social media.
I am saddened by the prospect of leaving USC Upstate, as I have grown to love the students.
Ideally, I would get hired by a school which is interested in (1) strengthening its brand through use of various social media platforms, and (2) emphasizing professional use of social media to its students. And yes, continue to teach undergraduate accounting students. Accounting faculty recruiting committees, though, are interested in ability to teach accounting and generate academic publications.
I would love to end up at a school that wants a social media enabled accounting professor. It can be a non-tenure track position. If you can suggest a school to which I can apply, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For my qualifications, please read my C.V.
