Academic Job Search Mentors
Searching for your first job can be a long and arduous task. It raises anxieties and questions for even the best-prepared job applicant. PFF has arranged for a Faculty Mentor who can answer questions you may have concerning your job search. To provide this "real time" support, we have asked a faculty member with broad experience in mentoring students into academic positions to be available to you. Be assured that, although they may not be in your specific discipline, this mentor will often be able to answer your questions and, if not, to provide directions on how to get the answers. Feel free to email our PFF whenever you have a question or issue or just want to talk about your academic job search.
In Fall 2012, Dr. John Ritz, Professor of STEM Education and Professional Studies, will serve as the PFF mentor. Click on Dr. Ritz's name for more information about his experience in mentoring graduate students. Email him with your questions at email@example.com.
