Remarks on faculty job searches (as 'tis the season):
Chances are, as a faculty candidate you apply to several job ads.

Dozens. More.

You wait. You hope.

(quick thread)

Some places will respond with a rejection pretty quickly. Form letter.

Sometimes hilariously addressed to Dear [Applicant Name3].

Are you just a number? At this stage, likely.

Others never get back to you. Or years (!) later.

This is normal and as in any higher-level job with lots of competition.

The waiting, the rejections, and the no-responses are depressing. Discouraging. At times unhealthy.

"Does nobody care about my ideas? My science? Me?"

Pls kindly Retweet to reach someone in need

#AcademicTwitter #phdpositions #academicjobs
In most Australian Universities, to apply for scholarships, an applicant must first submit a candidature for a Higher Degree(MSc/PhD) at the time of application. In most cases, it can be a combined process(a single application form with a section to indicate scholarship interest)
There are a couple of ways to go with this:

You can either apply for admissions & scholarships through:

(A) an advertised project or
(B) by developing a research topic and indicating interest in a scholarship.

In either way, you still need to submit:

Alright I can officially tell y'all I'm on the #academicjobs market.

I'm a #quantitative methodologist and lean heavily into quantitative criticalism to answer my ?s

Two years ago I went through Columbia's academic job market bootcamp. It was many weeks long and we prepped our materials and got feedback on them. Here is some of what we learned: A🧵 #AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #AcademicJobs
First: CVs
CVs differ from resumes in purpose, audience, scope, content, structure, length and formatting. CVs document your career history - they tell the story of your work. Structure and length vary and may vary by fields.
Formatting may vary by fields too, but it is important to have a consistent format with defined sections, and some white space.

It's been 6 months since I made the transition from academia (postdoc) to industry (extension scientist).

I know many academics are curious about this, so here's a thread of my experiences so far:
One big change is having known expectations. They expect a lot, but it's all laid out and it feels achievable.
Not like the "just be in the top 2% for everything and you still won't be achieving enough" expectation in academia
I felt like the world had lifted off my shoulders when I no longer had to worry about how many FTE years post PhD I am or what my H index is.
Now I'm measured by the quality of the work I do, the interactions I have and the skills I have. And that's good!

Networking tips that built my self-efficacy (thanks @midhatf3) a self-reflection and follow-along 🧵

(cc: @InclusiveGradEd @APSphysics)
apparently, MORE than 80% of jobs are found by networking?!! And networking is more than just starting a connection - it is also about maintaining it. I'll just leave some silence to absorb this statistic (looking at you #phdchat) and next up is identifying who's who
Networks and people are continuums... but identifying one or more roles a person in your network serves can *srsly* help you make a bettr elevator pitch.

Let's brainstorm & try to categorize our networks. Lets identify the category that needs more ppl. Lets build ntwrks robustly
