“The workshop far exceeded my expectations. Not only did the workshop inform me about how to effectively apply for faculty positions, but the presenters were also clear in describing the life of an academic. I really appreciated that everyone involved with the workshop was so honest about work ethic of an academic, but also the benefits that come with that life.” –2013 NextProf Participant
