Academic Tyra

Applying for graduate schools, fellowships, and jobs is daunting.  Good thing I have Academic Tyra!|

7 DOS and DON’TS of Cover Writing
1. DON’T act like a fan and fawn over the department.

2. DO Present yourself as a colleague.

3. DON’T ramble on and about your diss. It bores hiring committees.

4. DON’T offer to teach all the courses. Your desperation is showing.

5. DON’T write a mushy teaching paragraph. ORLY?  You love teaching?! You create “engaging” assignments?!

6. DO specify your plans to publish.

7. DO make them want you.
