Good advice for job seekers from a reader of Philosophers Anonymous:
Dear Job Seekers,
Your CV should be short and to the point. Your publications should be listed on the first page. Papers and books “in process” should not appear under the heading “Publications.” Neither should papers merely submitted to journals — it takes no philosophical skill to stuff an envelope and address it to Phil Review. A long list of stints as “chair” of sessions at small regional conferences probably should be left off the CV. A two-page dissertation abstract is at least one page too long. Do not make it difficult to discern whether you’re fully-degreed yet — that’s something else to be put up front on the first page.
