Academic job applications are time consuming, highly specialized, and must be tailored to each position you’re applying for. In a tight market, it can be tempting to apply everywhere and try to be every kind of scholar. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, unsure, and exhausted, you’re not alone. But help is here!
My Job Seekers Support services can help keep you organized, motivated, and clear-headed about the job market and application process. I offer one-on-one coaching as well as personalized advising on materials such as your CV, cover letter, research statement, and teaching philosophy. I can also help you improve your job talk and work with you on a campus interview strategy.
When you work with me, you’ll be getting experienced, objective feedback and concrete suggestions for making your application or interview materials stand out. I will show you how to showcase your strongest qualifications and highlight your most impressive achievements. You will feel confident that you’ve made the best possible application for each position.

One-on-one coaching will help you clarify your values and priorities, leading to better decisions about which jobs to apply for and how to make the best possible application.
