Malakaj Comments on Report Regarding Divergent Trends in Modern Language Job Market

"...Ervin Malakaj, incoming head of the MLA Graduate Student Caucus and a PhD candidate in the Germanic Languages and Literatures department at Washington University in St. Louis, said graduate students across the country are engaging faculty for mock interviews, résumé help and other professional advice prior to the event.

"Although Malakaj said he was pleased to see the number of overall jobs and jobs in the foreign languages increase this year from last, he was taking the data with a grain of salt, since the list doesn't include all those that will be available by the end of the year."
