I’m applying for a job. I remembered to ask my Dean for a referral. But as for others, I forgot that I haven’t yet asked people, and also I have no idea to ask anymore. I seem to be in a weird place where my only publication is forthcoming and in pedagogy, and I’m trying to think of people who have come to my presentations, and I don’t really know them well enough to ask on what is becoming very short notice! Aargh.
I spend an awful lot of time thinking about applications, so that I write good letters and statements, but I don’t know how I managed to blank on this part. D’oh.
Has anybody got suggestions for how to dig myself out of this one?
