ABOUT THIS BOOK
Many graduate schools do an excellent job of preparing students for a career within a specific discipline in academia; however, these schools fail to teach their students how to go about conducting a successful job search for a teaching position and to prepare for the rigors of the hiring process at colleges and universities. Before institutions even invite applicants in for a writing assignment, interview, or teaching demonstration, applicants must first submit a detailed CV and application which get pre-screened by human resources and then by a hiring committee. Many applicants are unaware of the nuances of this first step and view the application submission process merely as a checklist. This is where they go wrong. This book is a simple career starter guide that will help you jump start your academic career search as well as be more competitive when applying and interviewing for teaching positions. Whether you are a recent graduate with a masters or doctorate degree, or a current faculty member seeking a new teaching opportunity, this book will provide you with simple yet effective tips on how to search, apply, and prepare for a new teaching position at a college or university.
