I Will do a Reddit AMA on Monday

Sorry to send another post so fast on the heels of the last one, but I want to invite everyone to join me for a Reddit AMA at [ /r/iama] Monday to talk about anything related to the academic job market, the tenure track job search, job docs, interviews, adjuncting, Ph.D. debt, deciding to go post-ac, and whatever else, including any questions you might have about my book, The Professor Is In: The Essential Guide to Turning Your Ph.D. Into a Job, the writing process, the blogging process, building a business, and getting a trade book published (with an agent).

It’s Monday 8/10 at 1 PM EST.

About Karen

I am a former tenured professor at two institutions–University of Oregon and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have trained numerous Ph.D. students, now gainfully employed in academia, and handled a number of successful tenure cases as Department Head. I’ve created this business, The Professor Is In, to guide graduate students and junior faculty through grad school, the job search, and tenure. I am the advisor they should already have, but probably don’t.

  1. I will be at work, so I can’t participate. I hope you get lots of questions and it’s a stimulating dialogue. Good luck with the AMA.

  2. For shame, I missed this!!! I had one quick question that I’m hoping you can answer. I am a newly-minted international PhD who graduated from an American university in the spring, but who struck out on the US job market. As a result, my visa expired and I entered immigration limbo, which bars me from seeking employment opportunities. Through family unification, I’ll hopefully have work papers at some point in the upcoming academic year, but what should I be doing until then? And how should I account for a full year without an affiliation to an academic institution in my application materials? Thanks!!!
