I decided in the third year of my humanities PhD program that I didn’t want to stay in academia, but I did want to finish my degree. Three years later, in April 2013, I filed my dissertation and began my post-academic job search.
Things that I like more than writing cover letters include playing in my orchestra, watching Game of Thrones, running (well, actually, I prefer cover letters to running), eating vegetarian, and my cute little cat. If you’d like to get in touch, email me at academischblog [at] gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!
