Karen Kelsky is the Founder and President of The Professor Is In (, which provides advice and consulting services on the academic job search and all elements of the academic and post-academic career. In this talk with Q and A, Karen will walk you through the conditions of the current academic job market, the most common mistakes made by job-seekers, and the ways you can prepare your record, applications, and interviews. While the talk is oriented toward the US job market, I will reference UK doctoral training and UK job search practices throughout.
Topics covered:

  • The big-picture conditions of the academic tenure track job market
  • How to think like a search committee
  • The ethos of job market documents
  • The most common mistakes made by job seekers
  • The key to academic interviewing
  • The non-academic option
