Navigating the Arts-AC World

A single tenure-track job in the arts can get upwards of 250 applications. There’s no magic wand for getting an offer, and everyone’s journey is different; but step one is figuring out what makes you stand out from the pack – as an artist, an academic, and a teacher.

a job portfolio only you can write

Whatever your starting point, I’ll help you figure out what makes you unique as a job candidate. We’ll work together to develop cover letters, a CV, and teaching/diversity statements authentic to you. Along the way, you’ll develop skills in reading and deciphering a job announcement, comparing your values with an institution’s, and other skills to help you not just get a job, but a job you love.

Confidence at every stage

An interview isn’t just about “being yourself” – it’s about making sure a search committee sees all the best parts of yourself. I’ll help you with every step of the interview process, from the phone interview to the campus visit. You’ll learn how to research a school efficiently, understand the dynamics of an interview question, and build job talks/teaching demos/recitals that show you at your best every time.

A track record of success

There are no guarantees in the academic world, but my clients have had success in their job searches time and time again. Former clients have gotten campus interviews across the country, and offers at schools including Wartburg College, Southern Illinois University, and Wallace State Community College.

affordable help on your schedule

Every first session is free. Afterward, book new meetings on your schedule: $85 for a one-hour Zoom meeting, or prepay for 4 weekly meetings at $75/hour. Either payment plan gets you whatever help you need for your situation, along with help via text message and email… all for less than 1/3 the price of other coaching services.

I understand job seekers are often on tight budgets, so discounts are available – contact me and let’s talk. For those not ready to take the plunge, I also offer email-based coaching for $50/week. Contact me for details.
