I stumbled on this website - THE PROFESSOR IS IN. It's a good place for concrete tips and strategies toward landing that faculty job you're after.
Here's an excerpt from the author's "Uncensored Bio":
"I created The Professor Is In to make an intervention for
The Professor is Dr. Karen Kelsky.
I think she is a little too militant about accusing graduate programs and professors for not sufficiently advising students. While some of what she says is true - that in many programs, our advisors do not give us any direction or support at all in how to go about building steps toward a career - the landscape of academia is not as bleak as she suggests. But I do understand where she's coming from and that she's out to help graduate students who are not getting the career mentoring they need to enter a very competitive job market.
Here is a column she wrote for The Chronicle of Higher Education. I think she might have gone too far on her diatribe against the lack of advising in academia. Read the comments and you will get a good sense of the dilemma some professors find themselves in. If they were to do what Karen does, could they do the rest of their job - research, teaching, service? It's a tough road for professors too.
But the bottom line for dissertators looking ahead - no matter the situation in your department/school, thank goodness for cyberspace where information is sometimes truly free and truly useful.
So, ignore the ire, but take advantage of her useful material and resources. She has a lot of free stuff, although the website is a consulting site and you can hire her as your personal consultant if you want.
