Show Notes

We talk Imposter Syndrome: what it is, why we get it, how to overcome it. We talk about gendered messages, structural racism, and being told you don’t belong; ie: it’s not Imposter Syndrome if they’re always treating you like an imposter. We ask why it so often intensifies precisely when you experience professional success, like […]

The Professor Is In – Trailer

The Professor Is In has been the world’s leading source of academic career advice for a decade, and in this new podcast academic career coach and author Dr. Karen Kelsky and productivity coach Kel Weinhold, with their trademark combination of candor, humor, and compassion (and a healthy dose of critique), tell you the truth about how the academy works, with strategies for reaching your goals while prioritizing your emotional well being. We go where others don’t, breaking down the unspoken rules of academic culture, including all the ways it centers white folks and marginalizes everyone else. Our mission: whether you’re in grad school, on the job market, on the tenure track, adjuncting, or deciding to leave the academy and do something else, we are here to support you with insights, advice, and real talk.

Episode 2.20: Navigating the River

Karen and Kel talk white water rafting as metaphor for your job search. In rafting you can’t fight the river – it’s bigger than you! And you have to find the spaces between the obstacles – like the rocks, branches, eddies, and forks in the river that are too shallow…  How is this like the academy?  Well,  some rivers are just not navigable. And you might have a terrific kayak (a great PhD based on a brilliant dissertation) but if the river isn’t navigable… you’re not getting down it. And maybe that river was navigable some time before, for other people… but it isn’t now, for you, because conditions have changed. In this episode we remind you that the river is NOT the tenure track job search/academic career— the river is your income stream (see what we did there?) and navigating it means you need to find that V in the rapid, that spot where the water (and you) can find a way through. And that means getting clear on what you actually want to aim toward, rather than at what you “can’t do,” because that’s the only way you and your kayak can move forward!
