There are lots of questions on here about dealing with Imposter Syndrome throughout the whole Ph.D. experience. I have struggled with Imposter Syndrome throughout my whole Ph.D., but was able to manage it through a supportive adviser who thinks the world of my work. However, this is changing now. I am on the job hunt (graduating this spring with a Ph.D. in applied mathematics - my research is sort of straddling the line between applied math and computer science, although my masters and bachelors are both in pure math) and I am focused on teaching-oriented schools, and have a diverse teaching background (with overwhelmingly positive teaching evaluations).
I have applied to many jobs. I have gotten a decent number of first round interviews (phone, skype/zoom, conference interviews at the Joint Math Meetings) but only one on campus interview so far. And still waiting to hear back from them (probably not the top candidate judging by the time). The job most interested in me right now is a job I was qualified for with just my masters - and I only have unofficial word on that, hearing things through the grapevine. There has also been countless rejections of the form-letter variety.
Sorry for the rambling. Long story short, I struggled with Imposter Syndrome through the Ph.D., was built up by a supportive adviser and finally was feeling like I actually did belong in academia, and now the complete lack of job prospects is just making me feel like it was all a mistake somehow. Somehow I slipped through this far, but nobody will actually want me on faculty.
Those of you who have been here before - how did you personally deal with feeling not good enough after all this work? The way I'm feeling is interfering with me finishing typing my dissertation, because I'm feeling like there is no point. How can I snap out of this enhanced imposter syndrome?
