Campus visits are hard! Forewarned is forearmed, though, and Karen and Kel continue in the “job market advice” vein and talk about managing the campus visit, mostly focused on zoom challenges, but with insights for in-person visits as well. We cover the basic schedule, the challenges of meeting Deans, department heads and faculty, coping with Zoom settings and overwhelm, and end on the many bewilderments of the job talk. We disagree on several matters, including on how to best balance “they want to hear about you”/”they don’t want to hear too much about you.”

Karen and Kel, you both seem to continually step on each other’s toes, and it’s distracting and kind of painful to listen to. You should get a third person to moderate and be host, and also maybe each have separate podcast episodes entirely!
Personally, I come to The Professor is In for Karen’s nuts and bolts advice. That said, I find that advice too doggedly focussed on the tenure-track job search. I’ve had close to ten job interviews at this point, and only one has been for a tenure-track job in my field.

Sounds like you better not listen, then.
Thanks so much for this. I just purchased the webinar series and am up for an interview for a tenure track job next month!

You can work with us individually you know! Our Interview Intervention and Campus Visit Interventions are truly life-changing, if I do say so myself.
