Practice campus interviews

Are you on the academic job market? If so, do you have someone with whom you can practice various campus interview scenarios? If not, time to find someone who can help you think through how you come across in various situations.

Too often, people practice their job talk, but neglect to prepare for the other situations they will encounter. Remember, every encounter you have is an interview, from the emails you write, the way you submit your materials, even your most casual contacts are all part of the "data" that search committees use in their decisions. You need to know how you come across in such situations.

Find someone today and get feedback on how you are coming across. I could mean the different between an offer or not.
