These posts were super helpful when I was getting going on the market!

This bootcamp seems extremely helpful. I wasn't aware of this when I was on the market. But as I read some of this now, it really covered the ground! For example, one mistake I made in lots of interviews was 'coming cross as a graduate student', which I imagine contributed to sinking my candidacy. (I answered the questions well, I think, but I was very shy and definitely didn't present myself as an equal.) Another mistake is to brag in the documents such as ''this is very interesting/significant because...''

Madeline & Lu: Thanks for the kind words - so glad you found the series helpful!
