I am Dr. Karen Kelsky, of The Professor is In, and I will do an AMA at 1 PM EST on the academic job market, adjuncting, post-ac transition
Thanks for your questions, everyone! I wish I had time to answer more, but I'm in the thick of the Fall job market high season and tenure track cover letters and CVs are beckoning! This has been wonderful! I've really enjoyed your questions, and I hope you found my answers helpful. Be sure and follow me on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheProfessorIsIn and Twitter https://twitter.com/ProfessorIsIn and keep reading the blog http://theprofessorisin.com/ and of course, my new book. http://theprofessorisin.com/buy-the-book/
Wishing you the best of luck in your academic pursuits and job search.
My short bio: Karen Kelsky is the Founder of The Professor Is In -- a blog and business dedicated to helping Ph.D.s master the academic and post-academic job markets -- and a regular columnist at the Chronicle of Higher Education. A former R1 tenured cultural anthropologist and department head, Dr. Kelsky explains the unspoken rules of the academic job search and supports clients in their job search both in and outside the academy. Her book, The Professor Is In: The Essential Guide to Turning Your Ph.D. Into a Job, is available from Random House (Three Rivers Press). http://theprofessorisin.com/buy-the-book/
Ask me about the tenure track job search, job apps, interviewing, negotiating, PhD debt (1 in 5 owe over $100K), the corporatized university, adjuncting, leaving the academy; also ask about my new book The Professor Is In: The Essential Guide to Turning Your PhD Into a Job (Three Rivers Press 2015) and how to work with an agent and write a trade book (if you're curious).
I'll start responding to questions at 1 PM EST.
