Inquiring for a client with a PhD (public policy/labor studies) who has been hunting for a tenure-track position for 4 years (I'm an editor). Like many emerging scholars, she works at several adjunct positions each year. She has been very active in research and publishing, has won several grants since getting her PhD, and has applied for 50 jobs, resulting in 3 (unsuccessful) interviews. At this point she would like to find a career coach who specializes in working with academics in the North American market (Canada would be good, but perhaps not strictly necessary). Our google search for a coach hasn't turned up anyone so far. We investigated the website and book of a well-known coach and found that the information was readily available elsewhere, leading us to conclude that the person's high fee would not be a good investment. Any tips for finding and working with an academic job coach?
The only service I heard is "the professor is in" I watched some of their live Facebook videos and learn a lot. Even asked question in here relating their comments about job interview. Also they provide couching and help with cover letter and statements for possition application with special emphasis on diversity. Some members of Academia.stackexchange find them controversial due to unorthodox views on STEM field. But since OP friend is from humanities and whole team is more from that background I highly recommend them.
