  5. I fully understand the cost for a prompt review of the cover letter, but for all of us struggling applicants on (or near) food stamps, couldn’t you release the package itself for free? I am sure we would benefit from that more than you would a few dollars. Also, it might encourage more of us to ask for your assistance…

  6. James – TPII has helped my wife and I a TON in the past year – with just the “free” materials on line (which of course Karen had to develop).

    She is a professional in this needed field in academia and deserves to be paid for her time and expertise.

  7. Will The Professor’s Guides Taming the Academic Job Market and another grant writing useful for other scientific area such as chemistry? Thanks.

    • They’re pretty useful across the board, but my suggestion would be to purchase the webinar recordings instead–they cover more ground and with the lower prices now ($50, used to be $100) they’re not too different price-wise. And have good Q and A too.

  8. Karen,
    I have an application deadline coming up in about ten days. I have purchased a copy of your book and would like to get your CV strategizing session too. But I was wondering if I would receive your edits in time for this particular job…or if I should look at the Fall instead.
