Pop Quiz: Applying for jobs?
So it looks like I’ll be applying for my first tenure track position in the next month or so, which is both exciting and terrifying.
The school in question is actually an unusually good fit for my particular skill set and teaching philosophy, especially considering the very interdisciplinary nature of my work, so I’m really hoping things turn out well.
So, does anyone have any advice for someone on the market for the first time? Has anyone been on a search committee? Are there any (non discipline related) things that make some candidates stand out from the pile?
The Pop Quiz is a question posed to you, the Scholars of Doubt. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.
