  • Dear (me),
Thank you for your interest in the newly endowed Daniel H. Renberg Chair at the Medill School.
As you can imagine, there were dozens of highly qualified candidates.
Particularly because this is a new post, the search, and review, proceeded carefully over the summer and in the last month.
As far as we know, this is the first time a top journalism school in a major university, has hired a full-time faculty member in this field. So, our review included discussions about the core needs of Medill and the university.
I’m writing to let you know that the committee decided not to consider you as a finalist for the position. Your qualifications are quite impressive but, in the end, others had bodies of work that seemed a better match for the job.
We appreciate the work you’ve done in this area, the time you took to apply, and the thoughts you expressed, in your cover letter, about the challenges ahead.
Best wishes,
Douglas Foster, Chair, Search Committee, Associate Professor, Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications.

  • My interfolio definitely looks different. I started freaking out thinking I missed something. But it seems that others might be expriencing the same?

  • Emailed for clarification and received response: "After reviewing files, we requested information from some applicants. The Interfolio interface does not have a mechanism for indicating that those newly required materials do not pertain to all applicants, which can create confusion. If we require additional materials for your file, you will receive an email directly from Interfolio requesting that you submit them." [posted 10/20]

Q & A: General Discussion & AdviceEdit

So far, I have applied for 25 jobs and had one skype interview invitation (and I'm not satisfied with my first interview at all). Typically, how many applications do you submit and how many skype invitations do you get? I'm getting rejection emails and a bit worried. 

  • Unfortunately, there's no hard and fast ratio. I've known people who landed a Skype interview, on-campus, and offer for a tenure-line position at an R1 out of grad school despite applying to only 2-3 places total and others who were actively on the market for an entire cycle with only a few Skype interviews to show for it. Rejections will be common and I wouldn't worry too much at this point. That you landed a Skype interview before Halloween is actually a good sign.
  • Well, I applied to 10 schools so far. I got three phone interviews. However, I messed up all of them..I guess. We will see...as an ABD, I did not even finish collecting data. Sigh...
  • Try not to get too down on yourself. It's a brutal job market (though, I think not as bad as other fields, so hang in there!). But depending on your area of expertise, it's not uncommon to be on the job market for a few years: you might consider trying to stay in grad school for an extra year, consider postdocs (if it's not too late), or (though not many people recommend this) apply for jobs you wouldn't have considered (either due to location or teaching load) to try to establish yourself with more publications. You may need to stay in limbo for a little bit until a great fit pops up.
  • 3 phone interviews off 10 applications is a pretty fantastic ratio and a sign that your research is piquing a lot of interest, especially if you're only an ABD and don't even have full findings and conclusions to report yet. It's still early in the cyle, and even if you don't land a tenured position there will be lots of postdocs and lecturer positions opening up in the spring. 
  • Things look good for you. I'm also ABD (just waiting to defend) and I've gotten zero on about 25 applications so far. Surely you know that 3/10 is fantastic in a tight market?(x2)
  • How do you deal with the rejection? I am also ABD, and still working on the dissertation, and the rejection is making my imposter syndrome even worse, which makes working on the diss even more difficult... I've applied to 20 jobs so far and had one skype interview. 
  • It's been a bit soul-crushing, but my sense is that being ABD is a severe disadvantage in a lot of cases. Plus, with a saturated job market, it's not like I'm defective or something; there are really amazing folks who have been out multiple years, some of whom are still looking for their first TT job. I keep trying to remind myself of all that. 
  • What's wrong with you people? Most colleagues I know apply for 40-50 positions and maybe get one call back -- these people are at big research universities. And the job market in other fields (sociology, anthro, history...etc) is way tighter than Media & Comm. I can't believe you're consoling each other for 1/25 or 3/10! Seriously, relax y'all!
