Tamara’s Answer

Hello Summer,

The answer can depend on which type of college or university to which the person is applying. For instance, a job advertisement for a professor at a research university is likely to emphasize publication in peer-reviewed journals and by established presses. A teaching university might emphasize publication while focusing on teaching experience and pedagogy. A community college usually focuses on teaching experience and pedagogy. Being distinguished in one’s field before being offered a position might make one a more competitive job candidate in all three cases.
