In our newest “how can we help you?” thread, an Australian PhD asks:
Just out of curiosity. I applied for many jobs. My estimation is that more than half of the jobs I applied for are in North America. Three years on the job market and I’ve been through 17 interviews. 5 are for North American jobs. (All first round, no final round compared to all other interviews being for final rounds.) So basically my interview rate for North American jobs are much lower than that of for Uk, European, Australian, New Zealand, and Middle Eastern jobs. Is this a common experience for those who got their degrees not in North America?
Fair question, though I have to say that this person’s three years on the job market seem pretty spectacular to me (17 interviews is quite a lot!). It would be great to hear from other job candidates, as well as from search committee members. Is being an international candidate a disadvantage on the US market?
