Happy Birthday John and Lorna!
There's a job that I want. It's in vertebrate palaeontology - curation, not communication, but I think I could possibly do it.And more importantly, it's in a world famous educational institution in the only city I'd rather live in than London right now.The only trouble is, I don't have any specific experience in the area.
So I 'hmmmm' and I 'haaaaaaa' because while it's easy to say "well, apply anyway, it can't hurt", IB's neuroses say "ask someone who knows you professionally if they think you should" which is exactly the sort of thinking I'm trying to get away from. So I have decided that I am
going to apply. I just need to get the cover letter and CV down, which means -
- does anyone have experience of applying for academic jobs in the USA wanna check
my CV and give advice? I don't know exactly what's missing. I'll stick it up on GDocs and invite people.
