When tagging this question: How can I apply to be an adjunct faculty?, I came across four tags that could either be synonyms or at least have more distinct definitions.

To be clear, I think that these could either be merged into two or even one tag with synonyms.

For reference, here are the current definitions of these tags:

  • : Career is a person's "course or progress through life (or a distinct portion of life)". Questions related to academic career comes under this tag.
  • : Queries related to progression of academics in various capacities from a student to a professor and the various stages involved in the process.

The following should be considered as well:

  • : Refers to academic job, its advantages and disadvantages. Also related to duties and responsibilities associated with an academic job and academic job search.
  • : (no summary)

and are definitely synonyms, and they have been merged.

I'm not as sure about and , but I'd love to hear what everyone else about those.

Intuitively, I'd say that and are equivalent. More precisely, I don't see many questions that would qualify for one tag but not the other.

job now seems to be frequently misapplied, as per its own description and that of job-search. Sometimes people use both (which is reasonable but perhaps not optimal for job); other times they don't use job-search. Can someone help me figure out if there's a process to do something about that?
