Duke Magazine does a solid article on the search of one fresh Ph.D for a tenure-track job:
But on this warm winter day in Durham, Kennington is firmly back in the present. Fewer than four months away from earning her Ph.D., she is thinking about the challenge every doctoral candidate is pondering right now: how to land a tenure-track teaching post during one of the worst academic job markets in memory.
It would have been interesting to see the article also look at someone who (spoiler alert!) did not find a tenure-track job, and a lovely post-doc.
