stories of life on the academic job market
July 9, 2007 § Leave a comment
The Chronicle, a publication about higher education, has a series where people who are on the academic job market write their accounts for all to read. Some people use their real names, and others use pseudonymns, but everyone lists their degree, field, and institution. They’re looking for new writers this coming academic year, so if you will be “on the market” why not make a little extra cash writing about it?
As for me, I am at the beginning of this academic path, so I’ll just read the accounts for now, and try to take some advice away from them. At the very least, I think I have learned to have a sense of humor about some of the encounters of “academia.”
