While employers appreciate workers who don't easily give up in tough situations, sometimes too much "grit" can harm a career, according to a new study. The key, psychotherapist and author Amy Morin suggests, is to find a balance "between blind persistence and a defeatist mindset."

Academic job hunters need to prepare answers to common questions, and realize they are always "on" when they are at interviews and conferences and watch what they say, Texas Tech University professor David Perlmutter advises. "One stray remark or misspoken phrase can sink your candidacy, so speak carefully any time you face someone -- anyone -- related to the search in any way," he writes.

Academic job postings through the American Historical Association fell by 8% in 2014-15, marking the third straight year of declines, according to the group. Overall, job openings listed with the AHA have dropped 45% since 2011-12, and for the first time, the number of positions "fell below half the number of Ph.D.s conferred in the previous year," the report's authors noted.
