Our Academic Job Market Webinar Series Starts this week!
While the data is mixed, some fields are seeing a rebound in academic hiring to pre-pandemic levels (which are not good levels, but are better than the last couple of years).
If you’re applying, don’t go it alone. Let us help. Our webinars are amazing, if I say so myself! I love to talk to folks there, and answer your real questions live on air.
Join me for 1.5 hour content-PACKED webinars on all aspects of the academic job search. 1 hour of content, 30 minutes of Q&A.
And, YES, you get the recordings afterward!
Just until Friday 10/28 get a package deal on all six webinars, a $50 savings (click on logo):
