I am preparing material for the academic job market and I would like to receive feedback from peers on my cover letter.
Additionally to the traditional personal contacts, I have thought about online forums as a possible location, but have not been able to find any that seem good. I am also not interested in websites that offer consultation from professionals in return for money.
How would you advise I go about getting such feedback?
Unfortunately, not everybody works in big departments or in universities with staff of the human resource management trained for this purpose. Also, it is the end of June: in some countries (in my case Sweden) this means the vacation period is started and it is taken very seriously (vacation=no working activity of any type, besides for doctorate students).
