Inside Higher Ed recently published an article written by Doug Hannah, Assistant Professor of Strategy and Innovation, offering recommendations on managing the job search in academia.
While it could be a seven-month process, or even longer, the grueling experience of going on the job market is an unavoidable step on the path to an academic career. Rather than focusing on how to land a dream job, this article discusses how to remain healthy and balanced when doing so. As Doug explains, the key to finding a job is managing the process, managing the results, and managing the feelings in the process. He states, “Ultimately, landing an academic position isn’t the only outcome of the job market that you should be thinking about. Your health and well-being matter as well, and they aren’t worth sacrificing along the way.”
